Since McDonald's opened its first restaurant in the UK in October
1974, the Golden Arches logo has become a familiar symbol. It is
now seen not just on high streets, but also alongside major roads,
on a cross channel ferry, in a hospital, railway station, retail outlets
and at Gatwick and Heathrow airports.

By the end of 1994, McDonald's had opened 577 restaurants in the
UK, a total investment in property and equipment of C970 million.
The company employs over 33,000 people, and at least a further
5,000 are employed by our franchisees.

McDonald's Fact File provides a detailed insight into every aspect
of the company, including up-to-date financial information.
