Fast food restaurant chain McDonald’s USA LLC announced today that the company and its franchisees will invest about $166 million in 2018 and 2019 to modernize 215 McDonald’s restaurants in Wisconsin.
In total, McDonald’s and franchisees will invest $6 billion to modernize most of its restaurants in the U.S. by 2020.
Several southeastern Wisconsin McDonald's locations have already been rebuilt in recent years.
"This is an exciting time for McDonald's and we're proud to be investing nearly $166 million to provide a new experience, look and feel for guests at 215 McDonald's locations across Wisconsin," said Steve Kilian, Sr., Wisconsin McDonald's owner/operator. "We are also pleased that our modernization supports local architecture, engineering and construction jobs across the great state of Wisconsin."
"Whether it's part-time jobs or full-time careers, McDonald's is an important local business and supporter of communities across Wisconsin," said Gov. Scott Walker. "I got my start working shifts at McDonald's, and it's great to see businesses like McDonald's investing even more in Wisconsin as they continue to build and modernize their restaurants - and help our state's economy continue to grow."
