Franchising a McDonald’s Outlet in the Philippines

While the Philippines has Jollibee to cater to the taste of Pinoys, many Filipinos have also come to love McDonald’s, especially because the international chain offers items not available from Jollibee and does have better toys and more options for kids.

Of course, it could not be argued that more Filipino kids and their families prefer Jollibee but you still have a stable market for McDonald’s in the country – especially because there are also a lot of tourists visiting the Philippines and a lot of Filipinos also enjoy their offers.

Today, there are at least 150 McDonald’s outlets in the Philippines ever since the fastfood chain opened its first store in 1985.
