You know - the Golden Arches. Burgers, fries... and now, some great salads and chicken sandwiches, too. More than 50 million people across the globe eat in our 30,000 restaurants every day.
Did you also know that it takes over 1 million people worldwide to serve those customers? We're the largest employer in the quick service restaurant industry.
More than 80 percent of our restaurants are locally owned by folks who live and work right in your communities. These aren't just wealthy investors. They're hard-working men and women - many who started out as crew members who run multi-million dollar companies and impact the lives of dozens, sometimes hundreds, of young people every day.
