McDonald’s is the world’s largest restaurant chain, with more than 34,000 restaurants worldwide and employing 1.8 million people.
In the UK, there are 1,200 McDonald’s restaurants which serve approximately three million people every day.
Around 70% of its restaurants in the UK are owned and operated by local businessmen and women.
It has a long-term commitment to the Olympics. Its involvement first began in 1968 when US Olympic athletes became so homesick for American food that McDonald’s airlifted some of its hamburgers into the Olympic Village.
Its official sponsorship of the Games began in 1976 at the Montreal Games, and this sponsorship continued for London 2012.
