Become a McDonald’s® owner/operator.

McDonald’s has always been a franchising company, relying on our franchisees, or owner/operators, to play a major role in the company’s success. McDonald’s remains committed to franchising as a predominant way to do business.
Owning a McDonald’s restaurant is a tremendous opportunity. We look for highly qualified people with significant business experience and financial resources, who have successfully owned or managed multiple business units or led multiple departments.
