Jason Clark is the Senior Vice President and Chief Operations Officer at McDonald’s UK & Ireland. Here, Jason explains more about the McDonald’s Franchising model – and what’s in it for our Franchisees.

What you’ll need

As a Franchisee you’ll need to make a significant up-front financial investment, which means having at least £100,000 in unencumbered funds. You’ll also need to demonstrate you can lead from the front and work within our framework to give yourself the greatest chance of success.

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.

Could I be a Franchisee?

Passion. Personality. A love of people. McDonald’s Franchisees come from a diverse range of personal and professional backgrounds, but there are a few qualities they all share. Get to know some of our Franchisees from across the country now.
