What you’ll get
We’re one of the world’s most iconic brands, and we offer world-class support and training to our Franchisees. Before you start, you’ll go through a comprehensive restaurant training programme for a minimum of 16 weeks, followed by a business immersion and handover process. We also make sure you have a supply chain to be proud of (with strict welfare and traceability standards), and you’ll have the benefit of marketing and branding that’s among the most recognised on the planet.
I worked for BP for 20 years, directly managing a number of teams in my career. The commercial, leadership, strategic and people skills I built were perfect and set me up to be a Franchisee.
From Police Constable to Postmaster to Business Owner for six years - I did a lot of things before this. Now, I get the satisfaction of working with and mentoring great people every day. They care because I care and that speaks volumes in my restaurant.
The support and training on offer helped me go from Police Inspector to Franchisee and now I serve the community in a different but no less rewarding way. With the help and support of a global brand, I can really make an impact locally. That’s the best thing about being a Franchisee.
I’d run my own Franchise before, but it was the support at McDonald’s that made all the difference to me. I’ve got access to a Franchise Consultant who I’m always bouncing ideas off. If I need any advice about my business, there’s always someone I can speak to, which means I can focus on making my business as successful as I can.
Before becoming a Franchisee, I worked in a number of senior roles at McDonald’s. Thirty years’ experience with the brand gave me the confidence to set up my own company and I’ve never looked back.
Prior to becoming a Franchisee I enjoyed a successful career as a Sales Director for Fujitsu. 10 years ago, I took charge of my first restaurant in Wakefield. Now, I operate six restaurants and employ over 600 people. I love being able to create opportunities for my people.
Before becoming a Franchisee, I was a director in a real estate management firm, managing a team of 10 surveyors. I love working with people, so being a Franchisee is perfect for me.
Ever since I was young, I’ve wanted to build my own business. Having worked in the technology sector for over a decade, I knew what it took to manage large teams and be commercial – this experience set me up perfectly for becoming a franchisee.
I completed my training to become a Franchisee in July 2018. Before, I worked as the IT Director for McArthurGlen after a 20-year career in the IT sector, leading a large team across Europe. I come from a family of entrepreneurs – my dad owned several businesses. It feels good to follow in his footsteps.
