The Story

McDonald’s opened its first restaurant in Lebanon on September 18th 1998. Today, there are 26 restaurants employing hundreds of Lebanese throughout the country.
As leaders in the food service industry, we are proud to have introduced in Lebanon the largest global food service retailer and the world’s best quick service restaurant

McDonald’s participates in the growth and development of the Lebanese economy by actively coaching local supply programs and helping Lebanese suppliers to reach international standards.

At McDonald’s Lebanon we believe that giving back to our community is one of our most essential roles. Every year McDonald’s sponsors social activities such as bazaars and fundraising events and hosts free lunches for thousands of orphans and children in need from across Lebanon.

McDonald’s Lebanon also supports other NGO’s and charities in their humanitarian missions on a regular basis such as Children Cancer Center of Lebanon “CCCL” and Al Younbouh. Our characters also pay regular visits to the schools and hospitals performing fun show and distributing gifts to all the attendees. One of our major fundraising programs is the World Children Day program.
