McDonald’s UAE has achieved a significant milestone by inaugurating its 197th restaurant in Umm Suqeim 2, Dubai. Aligned with McDonald’s UAE’s ongoing mission to promote sustainability and a greener future, the Umm Suqeim restaurant is partially powered by solar energy.
What sets this launch apart is that the new establishment is operated entirely by an all-female workforce, a first for the brand in the UAE. Embracing eco-friendly practices, the restaurant incorporates solar panels and electric car charging ports on its premises.
McDonald’s UAE has been actively addressing its carbon footprint through initiatives like the BioDiesel program, converting used cooking oil into BioDiesel for its trucks since 2011.
Walid Fakih, CEO of McDonald’s UAE, expressed pride in empowering women and providing equal opportunities, emphasizing, “Our people and our planet are at the heart of McDonald’s UAE operations. The new restaurant is part of our commitment to uplift our female talent, showcasing their drive and enthusiasm while contributing to a greener planet.”
The Umm Suqeim 2 restaurant will serve McDonald’s renowned menu and McCafé offerings around the clock, led by the dedication and seamless efforts of its all-female team. This restaurant marks another stride towards a more sustainable and inclusive future for McDonald’s UAE.
