As our founder Ray Kroc said, "McDonald's can't be successful unless our Owner/Operators are successful." We still believe that today. Approximately 85% of McDonald's US 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.
