Australia’s first McDonald’s restaurant opened in Yagoona, Sydney, in 1971. Today there are over 950 McDonald’s restaurants across Australia, 80 per cent of which are franchised and run by local businessmen and women. The organisation employs more than 100,000 people in restaurants and corporate offices Australia-wide, and is the largest employer of youth in the country. McDonald’s creates more than 6,000 new jobs each year and spends over $40 million per annum on training and people development.
McDonald’s Rockhampton, situated on George Street, was built by the initial licensee of Yagoona. Since the opening of the George Street Restaurant in 1989, over 6,000 youth have been given their first job at McDonald’s in all six Rockhampton restaurants and all six stores have infected millions into Rockhampton’s economy.
