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.
