McDonald’s Canada’s is celebrating 50 years in business and to mark the occasion is offering its customers a special thank you. The chain will offer 67¢ hamburgers – in recognition of its 1967 birthday. On Wednesday, Aug. 16, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., the specially priced hamburgers will be available at McDonald’s restaurants across the country. There is a three-hamburger limit per customer, while supplies last, and purchases must be made in-restaurant.

The first McDonald’s restaurant opened in Richmond, B.C. In fact, it was the first McDonald’s to open outside of the U.S. McDonald’s Canadian locations have spread across the country, serving close to three million guests every day. Franchise and corporate restaurants employ 90,000 people from coast-to-coast and approximately 85 per cent of McDonald’s 1,400 Canadian restaurants are locally owned and operated by independent entrepreneurs. Of the almost $1 billion they spend on food, more than 85 per cent is purchased from over 100 suppliers in Canada.

“It’s amazing to think that a single BC location that started in 1967 has grown to over 1,400 restaurants across Canada,” said John Betts, President and CEO, McDonald’s Canada. “This is a true testament to what the passion, spirit and support of guests, franchisees and employees can do. Looking ahead, we’re excited about our future and continuing to share special moments, like today, with Canadians from coast-to-coast.”
