Our Story

Can you imagine a world without the Big Mac®, Quarter Pounder® sandwich or the Happy Meal®? Luckily, in 1954, an enterprising salesman named Ray Kroc discovered a small burger restaurant in California, and wrote the first page of McDonald's® history.

In 1967, the first McDonald's Canada opened in Richmond, B.C. We've been growing with our communities and serving quality food at great value ever since. 

Today, McDonald's Canada is proud to be one of the world's leading foodservice retailers. From coast to coast, we serve delicious choices to more than 2.5 million people in over 1,400 locations every day. 

We're also more than just your local restaurant. We're hardworking small businessmen and women, students working part-time, seniors getting the most out of life, and volunteers lending time to make a difference in the communities we live and work in. Learn more about us.
