U.S. Real Estate

McDonald's looks for the best locations within the marketplace to provide our customers with convenience. We build quality restaurants in neighborhoods as well as airports, malls, tollways and colleges at a value to our customers.

Our Philosophy

You'll find that our restaurants reflect our commitment of giving back to the communities in which we do business. When you walk into any one of our restaurants, you walk into a brand that extends into the community. Whether our McDonald’s properties are built with a PlayPlace in your local neighborhood or a business center in your local airport, we aim for every customer in every restaurant to have the best quick-service restaurant experience, every time.

Property Site Criteria

If you have property for sale, McDonald's wants to hear from you. We just might want to build a restaurant on your site. In the past, we have developed restaurants on smaller parcels and significantly larger parcels. Give us the opportunity to look over your property site characteristics.

The ideal site today might include the following characteristics:

  • 50,000+/- sq. ft.
  • Corner or corner wrap with signage on two major streets.
  • Signalized intersection.
  • Ability to build up to 4,000 sq. ft.
