Reportedly, McDonald’s Corporation (MCD) is building new rules for franchisees, including performance reviews every 20 years to bring “greater clarity, transparency, and consistency into our franchising process.”
Joe Erlinger, president of the Chicago-based burger giant announced the changes informing that the new rules include a 20-year performance review and franchise renewal based on performance history. He further informed that the relatives of franchisees will not be given preferential treatment in the awarding of new franchises. The changes will be implemented starting in 2023.
The move comes as McDonald’s has been under pressure to increase the number of minority franchisees. The company is trying to increase the ownership of its franchises by minorities by spending $250 million over five years to provide financial help to candidates.
