You purchase the equipment and rights to operate a restaurant from a location for a set term. The challenge is to maximise the sales and profitability of the restaurant over 20 years.
We only franchise one restaurant at a time to new Franchisees. It is our intention to put restaurants in the best and most capable hands. If you achieve consistently high standards we'll be interested in selling you the rights to run additional restaurants.
No. Property selection and Franchisee selection are two separate decisions. As we franchise existing trading restaurants to new Franchisees, the sourcing of a site is not necessary. Our Franchisee selection process is based on an individual's career or business track record. We only franchise existing restaurants with at least two years' trading history to new Franchisees.
Buying into McDonald's is a significant financial investment and you are required to fully participate in the day-to-day running of the business.
If your personal circumstances change you may sell the remainder of your Franchise term to a McDonald's approved buyer (someone who has been approved through the McDonald's Franchisee selection process).
No. A McDonald's Franchise is offered to one person only. A Franchisee can choose whether to operate as a sole trader or limited company (up to 25% of the shares in that company can be issued to their spouse or civil partner).
