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. They have been growing with communities and serving quality food at great value ever since. Today, McDonald’s Canada is proud to be one of the world’s leading food service retailers. From coast to coast, McDonald's serves delicious choices to more than 2.5 million people in over 1,400 locations every day. They also more than just your local restaurant. They are hardworking small-business men 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.
