To tie in with 45 years of McDonald’s, the company commissioned an independent report, which revealed its business and suppliers have made a combined contribution of £11.1million to Sunderland’s economy annually.

In 2017, McDonald’s generated more than £9.3million in Sunderland. Franchisee Jasper Maudsley owns six restaurants across Sunderland and Washington, and oversees almost 1,000 employees.

He said: “Creating and sustaining jobs across Sunderland 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.

“To me McDonald’s is not a multi-national company but a multi-local company, closely supporting and working together with the communities that we operate in.”

As part of championing his community, Jasper works closely with schools, helps out at foodbanks and participates in the McDonald’s-wide anti-litter campaign.

In the North East as a whole, McDonald’s has contributed £80million to the economy and supported more than 6,400 jobs.
