Our Franchisees

Pierre Marois and Spouse

“What I love the most about McDonald’s is the people, the culture, the respect and the sharing. Nobody at McDonald’s looks the same. Inclusion is an important value for us, being a gay couple with two kids, McDonald’s has never made us feel different or unwelcome and we apply that in our restaurants and in our communities as well.”

Deborah Feaver

"The training program through McDonald’s was everything. It helped me to make that transition to owning and running my own business. The collaboration with the organization and the support that McDonald’s has given me, it has been amazing all along the way. They want you to succeed, they’re there to help you and support you.”

Jason Ammar

“I have very fond memories growing up loving McDonald’s, celebrating my birthdays at McDonald’s. McDonald’s was always a place where we shared a lot of happy moments. Obviously, the business model was also appealing to me – that’s how I got into the brand. Being part of the McDonald’s Family means being part of something that is bigger than myself.”

Drew Jarrett and Spouse

“This has been a goal of ours for a long time, so to have it come to fruition is very exciting. It’s exciting for us to see the impact that we’re having with our staff, with our guests and getting involved in the community. The advice I would give to new franchisees would be to trust in the brand and trust in the system, because the system is always going to be there to support you.”

Sarah Douglas

“McDonald’s has allowed me to take my business experience, my people skills and bring them to an existing business and put my stamp on it. It’s also allowed me to continue to be successful in the business world, yet still balance my life as a working mom. If you are given the opportunity to become involved with the McDonald’s system, do not hesitate, jump at that opportunity!”  

Jennifer G. Antolin
