How many McDonald’s are there in the United States?

Within the region of North America, fast food king McDonald’s operated and franchised by far the largest proportion of restaurants in its home country of the United States, accounting for 13,905 units in 2018. The second largest number of McDonald’s establishments in North America was in Canada, with 1,472 units in the same fiscal year. The smallest number of McDonald’s restaurants were in Cuba, where the company only had one establishment in 2018.

The United States – McDonald’s most important market

The quick service giant accounted for almost 38 thousand restaurants in operation across the globe in 2018; the majority of these based in the United States. In its home nation the Illinois-based company operated its highest number of U.S. stores in Orlando, Florida – the city having almost 21 units per 100 thousand residents. The fast food behemoth generated a total revenue of over 21 billion U.S. dollars worldwide in 2018. The largest share of McDonald’s global revenue, nearly eight billion U.S. dollars, were generated in the United States alone. Therefore, it comes as no shock that McDonald’s is a popular spot for American consumers – this was confirmed in a 2018 Statista survey, when 65.13 percent of respondents in the U.S. aged 30-49 years stated that they visited McDonald’s in the past three months.
