There are 17 McDonald’s restaurants in the Christchurch and Canterbury area today, all of which have a strong connection to the opening day November 3, 1987.

New Zealand’s first McDonald’s restaurant opened in Porirua in 1976. Today there are over 165 McDonald’s restaurants across New Zealand, 85 per cent of which are owned and operated by local business men and women. The organisation employs over 9,000 people in restaurants nationwide, and is one of New Zealand’s largest employers of youth.

In 2016 McDonald’s spent more than $150 million with local suppliers, while New Zealand producers exported over $247 million of food to other McDonald’s markets around the world. McDonald’s is the primary supporter of Ronald McDonald House Charities New Zealand, who keep families close while their children are in hospital.
