We Have Always Been A Franchising Company


McDonald's has always been a franchising company and has relied on its franchisees, our Owner/Operators, to play a major role in the System's success. McDonald's remains committed to franchising as a predominant way of doing business.

We are actively seeking highly qualified business people to join our System as Owner/Operators.

Owning a McDonald's restaurant is a tremendous opportunity. We are seeking individuals with significant business experience who have successfully owned or managed multiple business units or have lead multiple departments and who have significant financial resources.

We are a family of over 270 Owner/Operators passionate about satisfying our customers, growing our business, making money and having fun.

McDonald's continues to be recognized as a premier franchising company around the world.

World Class Training

McDonald's continues to be recognized as a premier franchising company around the world. We believe a major component of this is the world class training you receive prior to becoming an Owner/Operator. McDonald's provides hands on training and the materials you need to be a success in your restaurant business.

World Class Service

McDonald's offers World Class Service. As our founder Ray Kroc said, "McDonald's can't be successful unless our Owner/Operators are successful." We still believe that today. Approximately 75% of McDonald's Canada restaurants are owned and operated by independent business men and women, our Owner/Operators.

McDonald's continues to be recognized as a premier franchising company around the world. The fact that McDonald's management listens so carefully to and collaborates with our Owner/Operators has a lot to do with that success.

Our Owner/Operators devote full time and best efforts to their restaurant business. Their focus and passion is what makes McDonald's the number one food service organization in the world.

System Support

Being a McDonald's Owner/Operator offers you many advantages - from the training, and the support of a solid organization, to the opportunity to own a thriving and successful business.

Essentially, here's what you receive when you become a McDonald's Owner/Operator:
  • Own your own business and receive the rewards that come from being responsible for your own success. With McDonald's unique approach to training and support, you are in business for yourself, but not by yourself.
  • Use of the trademarks and operating system of the number one brand in the world within the QSR industry.
  • The tools to help you in your business: local and national support in the areas of operations, training, advertising, marketing, human resources, real estate, construction, purchasing, and equipment purchasing and maintenance. To be responsive to your needs and in support of a collaborative business environment, McDonald's maintains regional offices throughout Canada along with our home office in Toronto, Ontario.
  • The enjoyment that comes from working with people, from your restaurant crew to your customers and community.
  • The opportunity to contribute to the success of McDonald's: Big Mac, Filet-O- Fish, and Egg McMuffin sandwiches have all been developed by Owner/Operators.
  • Personal and business growth and satisfaction, both as an individual Owner/Operator and as a member of McDonald's respected worldwide organization.
  • Personal growth and business knowledge from McDonald's extensive training and from your experience as an Owner/Operator.
McDonald's National Business Forum and National Marketing Forum provide a national forum for the exchange of ideas between the Company and its Owner/Operators. National and Regional business meetings also provide valuable interaction at the local level.

As a McDonald's Owner/Operator, you will experience a unique relationship with the Company - one that is unparalleled in the quick service restaurant industry. McDonald's leadership position continues to be built on the respect the Company shows for its Owner/Operators.

Franchise Opportunities now available in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
