A NEW report has revealed that McDonald’s and its suppliers make a combined annual contribution of £6.2 million to the Burton economy.
The firm opened its first Burton-based restaurant in Station Street in November 1983.
There are now four restaurants in the area, employing more than 300 people.
Burton franchisee Sarah McLean began her McDonald’s career 32 years ago and now runs twelve restaurants across Staffordshire, Leicestershire, Derbyshire and Warwickshire.
She said: “Creating and sustaining jobs in Burton, is of huge importance to me, and the fact that we have been able to make a significant financial contribution to the area is something my team and I are very proud of.”
