McDonald’s was founded more than 60 years ago and in 1994, McDonald’s opened its first restaurant in Egypt. Today, over 60,000 customers are served daily under the Golden Arches at over 82 branches throughout the country.
McDonald’s Egypt is a 100% Egyptian owned and operated company, and is owned by Manfoods, which is headed by Mr. Mohamed Ismail Mansour, Managing Director.
McDonald’s Egypt employs more than 4,000 individuals and indirectly supports and provides employment opportunities for over 10,000 families.
Over 90% of McDonald’s products come directly from Egyptian suppliers that are required to adhere to strict quality and food safety standards. Its commitment to food safety encompasses the entire supply chain - from raw materials to customer care.
McDonald’s offers numerous training programs for employees to provide the highest performance levels and customer service, while providing a supportive work environment characterized by openness and cooperation. McDonald’s offers its employees a differentiated employment experience and provides training and development opportunities as well as an open and respectful work environment that supports career growth and develops leaders.
McDonald’s is recognized worldwide as the 7th Best Company for Developing Leaders, through its proactive training and development programs and many other initiatives that provide real opportunities for career growth from an entry level to the highest level in the corporation.
McDonald’s is constantly dedicated to supporting the community on two levels – nationally through charity causes and projects; and on the workforce level, through their interest in charitable activities.
Out of its ongoing commitment to social responsibility and its belief in educational reform, especially in early stages, McDonald’s Egypt launched an initiative for developing unplanned communities, such as Ezbet Khair Allah and Batn El Bakara. McDonald’s Egypt in cooperation with “Peace and Plenty” (Kheir Wa Baraka) Association, renovated 22 nurseries and conducted educational courses for more than 400 mothers monthly.
McDonald’s Egypt signed a joint educational venture with the Faculty of Hotels and Tourism to offer for the non-university graduate employees the opportunity of a university education as well as the necessary knowledge and skills to help them progress into management careers faster.
McDonald’s also has a long-standing history of sponsoring global and local events that create strong, relevant connections with our customers. Our continued sponsorships of the Olympic Games and the FIFA World Cup and 9 teams in the Egyptian league are compelling examples of programs that help to enrich the lives of children and adults alike through once-in-a-lifetime opportunities and bringing the spirit of sports to life in our restaurants.
