    • Breakfast

      At the breakfast station we fry the eggs and toast the muffins. We also use a specially designed egg cooker that ensures every egg is freshly prepared, perfectly fried and fits the muffin precisely. Once we have finished serving breakfast, the station tucks away neatly for use the next day.

      Food Assembly

      Each meal at McDonald’s South Africa is prepared as soon as the order is placed by the customer. As the order appears on the screen, the crew person begins preparing the order by toasting the bun, adding fresh ingredients (lettuce, onions, pickles etc.), condiments and freshly prepared beef, chicken, fish or vegetarian patty.


      The order is finally packaged in 100% recyclable packaging by the crew, and served fresh to our customer.

      Maintaining Cleanliness

      Hygiene is of the highest priority within the restaurant. At the back of the restaurant, utensils, trays and other cooking equipment are washed in hot water, rinsed using a spray nozzle and then sanitised before being air-dried. A wash area is within close proximity to the different stations in the kitchen. A kitchen timer goes off every 30 minutes and every hour to remind crew to sanitise and wash respectively. Crew have easy access to the wash area to sanitise every 30 minutes and an hourly hand wash routine. This aligns with McDonald’s global standards, which ensure the highest food, hygiene and employee safety standards. Either blue or clear gloves are used for different products to prevent cross contamination, and gloves are discarded every time crew sanitises/washes hands.

    • Our Buns

      We have a variety of buns for the different products that we sell, for example Big Mac buns, hamburger buns etc. Each bag has expiry dates and production dates printed on the packaging. At McDonald’s we use the first in, first out principle, this helps us keep track of which products to use first.

      Our Chicken

      Our crispy chicken breast fillets are dipped into a golden brown batter and breading, then perfectly seasoned and cooked using palmolein oil.

      Our McChicken® patty is made with both white and dark chicken meat. Marinade, spices and breading are added to give you the familiar and favourite taste you love.

      Our Chicken McNuggets are made from the chicken breast, which is minced and shaped into nuggets, then coated with a specially-seasoned batter by our trusted suppliers.

      Our Coffees

      McDonald’s McCafé® coffee drinks are made with specific flavour profile coffee beans sourced globally. Much of our coffee originates from the warm climates of Central and South America.

      Our Premium Roast Coffee is ground from 100% Arabica beans – a slightly sweet, rich medium roast flavour that lingers.

      Our McCafé assortments of coffees are made with freshly ground dark roast espresso beans.

      Our Eggs

      We only use fresh, Grade A eggs in our Egg McMuffin sandwiches. The eggs are washed with warm water before being inspected both visually and electronically at the farms from which they are sourced, for any cracks or flaws. The eggs are then packed for shipment to the McDonald’s restaurants. So the eggs undergo rigorous QC checks before they are used to make the Egg McMuffin.

      Our Potatoes

      All natural, farm fresh potatoes are used to make our World Famous Fries. We only use potatoes that allow us to get the perfect size, taste and texture for a McDonald's French fry — slightly crisp with a tender bite on the outside, fluffy like a "baked potato" on the inside.

      The potatoes are cut, lightly par-fried and frozen before being distributed to our restaurants. Just prior to serving, the fries are cooked in our special palmolein oil, so that you get them crispy, hot and fresh.

      Fries are kept for a maximum of seven minutes after cooking. This guarantees that every fry you order from McDonald's is freshly prepared.
