Case Study - Grant Copper

Grant Copper - McDonald's FranchiseI could see the opportunities within the company when I was doing my A-levels and decided to stay on.

A part-time job at McDonald's turned into a career for Grant Copper, who dreamed of being master of his own destiny. "I could see the opportunities within the Company when I was doing my A-levels and decided to stay on," said Grant, who is a franchisee of restaurants in the south.

Before he moved into self-employment, Grant held several positions with McDonald's, including running Company-owned restaurants and a two-year stint in Slovenia as a project manager, growing the number of restaurants there from two to nine.

In June 2002 Grant became a McDonald's franchisee. "It felt very different operating my own restaurant - it was stuff like writing your own cheques and making decisions that directly impact your business," said Grant.
