Boston’s busy McDonald’s franchise employs 113 people, including 13 managers, already – and is set to take on 30 more staff to cope with the thriving trade.

Martin Cuthbert, franchisee of the Queen’s Street branch, recently hosted MP Mark Simmonds to show him around the successful operation, and talk about training that the fast food store offers to young people and its work with British and Irish farmers. The chain offers nationally-recognised qualifications such as the McDonald’s level 2 apprenticeship and foundation degree in managing business operations.

Mr Simmonds said: “I was delighted to meet with Martin and his team at the McDonald’s in Boston. McDonald’s is a large employer in my constituency and it was encouraging to hear about the training development opportunities which are being provided for local workers. It was also great to hear that business is thriving and they are expanding their workforce, evidence that the economy is growing stronger by the day and benefitting people across the country.”

Mr Cuthbert added: “Since refurbishing and extending the Queen’s Street restaurant in 2011, we’ve managed to create a number of local jobs and I’m proud of all of my staff - each of them works extremely hard to give our customers the best possible customer service every day. It was great to be able to highlight the great work they do to Mark during his visit, giving them the recognition they deserve.”
