McDonald's to open its first restaurant in Kenya

The move comes nearly three years since the fast-food chain invited investors to put in applications for a Kenya franchise.

McDonalds set to open a new branch in Kenya

Globally renowned fast-food chain McDonald’s is set to open its first branch in Kenya in the next six months, the Kenyan Wall Street reports.

The restaurant will be opened in Kilimani, one of Nairobi's suburb areas, underlining the need to serve a growing population of middle-class consumers.

McDonald's entry into Kenya  adds to the growing number of international franchise setting base in Kenya among them Subway, Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) and Burger King.

In March, the outlet said it was planning to refranchise 4,000 restaurants by the end of 2017, bringing the company's global franchised percentage to approximately 93%.

McDonald’s is one of the world’s largest restaurant chains, serving approximately 69 million customers daily in over 100 countries across approximately 36,900 outlets as of 2016. McDonald's restaurant is operated by either a franchisee, an affiliate, or the corporation itself.
