Big Macs’ £3.8m boost for Oxford

First published in News

MORE than £3.8m is invested in Oxford’s economy every year by McDonald’s, the fast food chain has claimed.

The retailer said it had calculated the figure by adding up how much money its restaurants and suppliers make.

McDonald’s opened its first Oxford restaurant in December 1984 in Cornmarket Street and there are now three in the city – the others at Botley Road and London Road.

More than 200 people are employed at nine branches across the county.

Why is this a news story? Any company employing about 200 people could make the same claim. How about deducting the amount the Councils in Oxfordshire have to pay picking up their discarded food containers?

Err...since when does a company making £x profit mean the same amount has been "invested" in a local area?

Don't forget that the majority of McDonald's restaurants (not to be confused with the MacDonald Randolph Hotel restaurant) in the area operate as franchisees.
