McDonalds are a valued Australian Olympic Team Partner for 2013-2016
McDonald's became an official sponsor of the Olympic Games in 1976 and has a longstanding commitment to the Olympic Movement. It all started when US athletes competing in the 1968 Winter Olympics in Grenoble France, reported that they were homesick for McDonald's food. So naturally, we airlifted hamburgers to them!
Since then we have served millions of athletes, their families and fans. Our restaurant at the Sydney 2000 Games was a favourite.
In Australia, we are very proud to be helping kids be active by supporting Little Athletics, Soccer, and Basketball in various states, and our customers are enjoying even more choice and variety with our salads and our new Deli Choices toasted rolls.
McDonald's in Australia operates more than 700 restaurants, employs 55,000 people, and serves over one million people every day.
