McDonald's INSIGHT Sessions at The Franchise Exhibitions

insight-sessions-mcdonalds 

McDonald's Insight Sessions at The Franchise Exhibitions. 

Meet the McDonald's team and find out what it is like to be a franchisee for a world-class brand. 

At McDonald’s, we believe choosing the right franchisees to be part of the McDonald’s system is a key factor in our success as a brand. Our franchisees come from all walks of life, but the main thing they all share is a drive for putting the customer at the heart of all they do and a passion for success. We’ve been franchising in the UK for 30 years and with 1,260 UK restaurants, millions of customers are served, jobs are created and opportunities provided to local people and businesses. A lot of that is down to the hard work of our franchisees: the people who believe in our brand enough to take on their own slice of it.
 
We’re always looking for hands-on, ambitious people who are ready to make a long-term commitment to our business.
 
For us, it’s about placing responsibility for the day-to-day operations of our restaurants in capable hands, working collaboratively to grow together. For you, it’s a unique opportunity to take charge of a business that has behind it a brand trusted by customers, proven, sophisticated systems, and an excellent framework of support. It’s an opportunity to realise your goals, work with your team to be part of your local community at the same time as fulfilling your ambitions.
 
McDonald's will be holding a Franchisee Recruitment Insight Session exclusively at The Franchise Exhibitions. Meet with McDonald's staff and gain a unique insight into being part of one of the world's biggest brands. Learn more about their first-class franchisee training programme - and find out if becoming a McDonald's franchisee is right for you. 

Reserve your seat at the McDonald's Insight Sessions at:

The Northern Franchise Exhibition | 21 & 22 June | EventCity, Manchester
