McDonald’s is proud to be one of the most recognised brands in the world, with restaurants in over 100 countries serving billions of customers each year. As the global leader in the food and service industry, we have a legacy of innovation and hard work that continues to drive us not just on a global level, but also here locally within the UK and Ireland.

We are proud to work with our dedicated Franchisees, who operate over 85% of our restaurants across the UK and Ireland. Their passion for people, ability to adapt in diverse, fast-paced environments and love for delivering quality food day-in-day-out is what sets our Franchisees apart from other business owners.

We are always looking for new Franchisees from a variety of backgrounds to join the McDonald’s family, with a long-term commitment to run successful businesses. We understand career changes can be both an exciting and daunting prospect, which is why we offer comprehensive support and training for our successful applicants in order to assist them on their new business journey.

Get the support of a global 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 35 years and with over 1400 restaurants, millions of customers are served, jobs are created, and opportunities are 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.

Be a part of the McDonald's franchise network

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.

We encourage anyone who is interested in becoming a franchisee to come and meet the team to learn more about the Brand and our model. Register your interest in a McDonald’s Insight Session at The Franchise Exhibition to find out more about the opportunity, the recruitment process and our world-class training programme.

McDonald’s loves to be ahead of the game with innovation in business and supporting Franchisees throughout this process. It is, for this reason, we are very proud of the milestones we have achieved over the last few years, which includes industry recognition from the British Franchise Association (bfa) for the following awards:
