The History of the Golden Arches™
Since 1955, we've proudly served the world some of its favourite food. Along the way, we've been more than a part of history - we've created it. From the first drive-thru restaurants to our famous Big Mac® sandwich, Fries and Chicken McNuggets®, it's been an exciting journey…and we're just getting started.
Today, 2.5 million guests visit our restaurants across Canada every day. With its Canadian franchisees, McDonald’s Restaurants of Canada Limited owns and operates more than 1,400 restaurants and employs more than 80,000 Canadians coast-to-coast. Approximately 75% of McDonald’s Canadian restaurants are locally owned and operated by independent entrepreneurs in communities from coast to coast.Source: McDonald's History online
