McDonald’s main aims are to serve good food for great value in a friendly, fun environment, as well as being a socially responsible company that provides good returns to our shareholders. We are committed to using our scale for good: good for people, for our industry, and for the planet. From simplifying ingredients to being nutritionally mindful; from reducing our waste impact to advancing the industry on sustainable and humane sourcing; from being a good employer for millions to giving help to those most in need via RMHC. McDonald’s is one of the world’s most universal, democratic brands. We welcome customers of every culture, age and background, and we proudly invest in all the people our success rests on – our crew, our suppliers and our community.
We are a restless company: always innovating, always moving forward. From our original business model to the invention of the drive thru and the Happy Meal, we’re working to do things better tomorrow than we do today.
