Your First Steps on Your U.S. Franchisee Journey

Welcome to McDonald's Franchising

Perhaps we were your first job. The go-to birthday outing for the kids. Your favorite fries. Maybe you’ve noticed the role we play in our communities and for charity. Or it just might be that you’ve wondered what it would be like to own a McDonald’s franchise in the United States.

Have a seat. Let's talk.

Running a McDonald’s franchise is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Think of the people you’ll meet … in the restaurant, across our organization and in the neighborhood. We couldn’t be more proud of the leadership our franchisees demonstrate each and every day. It takes heart, soul and a genuine commitment to the communities we serve.
