As with any new business, the franchise owner's salary and the profits from a McDonald's business depends on a lot of different factors. One way to validate the potential revenues or profits earned from a McDonald's franchise investment is to review the franchisor's Item 19 within their Franchise Disclosure Document. Typically, profits and owner's income are equitable to the size of the investment and number of locations you purchase. Demand for your products, your labor costs, commercial lease rates and several other variables also play a huge role in your profit margin and your personal salary

Did you know there are over 3,000 franchise opportunities across the United States. More than 80% have less than 10 locations.
Based on 2021 FDD analysis, McDonald's has franchised locations in 51 states. There may be no locations in several states as each franchise company plans their growth strategy differently. Specific states also require franchise companies to register their franchise opportunity and file their Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) with state examiners prior to offering franchise opportunities to residents in that state. These registration states have examiners review a franchisor's FDD to ensure it satisfies state regulatory requirements. In addition to registration states, additional states have enacted supplemental franchise or business opportunity laws that require franchise companies to provide their franchise within the state. In most instances the filing is a notice within the state. Unlike franchise registration states, the franchise filing states do not examine a franchisor's FDD.
