Additional Information

American multinational fast food chain McDonald is planning to open in France around 30 restaurants in 2021 and to create 2,000 new jobs. The group is planning a total investment of €200 million this year, including the investments that will be made to modernise the restaurants already open. Drawing lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic, McDonald's wants to continue to develop home delivery, now using Just Eat and Deliveroo, in addition to Uber Eats and Stuart. The brand is also developing drive-through and click and collect services.

McDonald will reach 1,500 restaurants in France. Currently, it employs 74,000 people.
