Kenyans who love McDonald’s fast food won’t have to travel to US or Europe any more for the same.

The chain, one of the world’s largest fast food restaurants, is finally entering the Kenyan market.

Its  first francise is set to open in six months time at Total fuel station, Dennis Pritt road in Kilimani Estate, Nairobi Area.

According to a local online publication, Kenyawallstreet.com, this comes nearly three years since the fast-food chain invited investors to put in applications for a Kenya franchise.

“Getting a McDonalds francise licence is extremely rigorous…they have to run your credit history and yo must be ready with a good amount of money,’ Mutahi Mugwe, a businessman told KSN in an interview on Sunday.

“They also have to make sure that the location and the hygiene meet set standards and that is why it has taken so long for the company to come to Nairobi,” he added.

The company in March said it was on track to refranchise 4,000 restaurants by the end of 2017, a full year ahead of schedule. Once completed, this will bring the Company’s global franchised percentage to approximately 93%.

McDonald’s was founded in 1940 as a restaurant operated by Richard and Maurice McDonald, in San Bernardino, California, USA. They rechristened their business as a hamburger stand. The first time a McDonald’s franchise used the Golden Arches logo was in 1953 at the opening of Phoenix, Arizona, USA. In 1955, Ray Kroc, a businessman, joined the company as a franchise agent and proceeded to purchase the chain from the McDonald brothers. McDonald’s had it’s original headquarters in Oak Brook, Illinois, but has approved plans to move its global headquarters to Chicago by 2018.[3][4]

McDonald’s remains one of the world’s largest restaurant chains, serving over 69 million customers daily in over 100 countries across approximately 36,900 outlets as of 2016. Although McDonald’s is known for its hamburgers, they also sell cheeseburgers, chicken products, french fries, breakfast items, soft drinksmilkshakeswraps, and desserts. In response to changing consumer tastes and a negative backlash because of the unhealthiness of their food, the company has added to its menu saladsfishsmoothies, and fruit. The McDonald’s Corporation revenues come from the rent, royalties, and fees paid by the franchisees, as well as sales in company-operated restaurants. According to a BBC report published in 2012, McDonald’s is the world’s second largest private employer (behind Walmart with 1.9 million employees), 1.5 million of whom work for franchises.

McDonald’s entry into Nairobi adds to the growing number of international franchise setting base in Kenya among them, Subway and Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC).
