New McDonald’s restaurant opening on Riddell Road

June 30, 2016   ·   0 Comments

Big Mac, Happy Meal or Egg McMuffin…whatever your fancy, you’ll now be happy to know McDonald’s is expanding in Orangeville by opening its third location, this one on Riddell Road.

Proud owner and operator of the franchise, Rory MacKinnon has a long-standing history with McDonald’s  in Canada and was excited for the opportunity to open this new site, his third with the chain.

“I’ve been with McDonald’s for 42 years.  I started when I was 16 in Ottawa.  Worked my way up and have been a franchisee for 12 years in Alliston and Angus,” he said.

There are big plans in the works for this new restaurant to be involved in the community and sports organizations.

“That’s the way we do business and that’s the way we will continue to do business in Orangeville,” Mr. MacKinnon said.

On Wednesday night he and his wife Marlene presented Headwaters Heath Care Foundation with a cheque for $3,700, the 37 representing the 37 years McDonald’s has been in the Orangeville area.

Mr. MacKinnon says he felt the Headwaters Health Care Foundation was the best place for him to start in the community.

“This money will go directly to supporting capital improvements within the hospital and directly impact families and children in this area,” he said.

The new McDonald’s Restaurant has over 110 employees and they’re ready for business.

Having spent many hours at the McDonald’s on Broadway preparing for opening day, the crew on Riddell Road is set to open tomorrow, July 1st.
