McDonald’s CEO of UK and Ireland, Paul Pomroy, said: "It has been an unprecedented four months. After 45 years serving the UK, at no point did we expect to close every restaurant for any period of time. As ever, I am incredibly proud of the way everyone in the McDonald’s system has worked together to return quickly and safely to the communities in which we operate, from farmers and suppliers right through to our restaurant teams."I am writing to you today with our response to recent announcements from the UK Government.
"Last week’s package of business support from the Chancellor was a vital boost for our sector. Daily headlines on the challenges faced by retail and hospitality cause such uncertainty for so many. I am very grateful for the support from our franchisees, who balance the needs of their local businesses with that principle of returning their employees back to work and customer support; many of them have faced challenges while we were closed, and are working hard to recover their businesses."
