MP and a Big Mac!

Donning a very distinctive uniform and a personalised name badge, I accepted the challenge of making my very own Big Mac on a visit to McDonald’s at Xscape last week.

I was invited to try my hand at burger making by Ken Tomkins of Kaizen Restaurants Ltd, a franchisee of McDonald’s in Milton Keynes.

Ken has been a franchisee since 2011 and is passionate about Milton Keynes and the environment in which we live. In addition to operating his five stores he and his team of over 500 local individuals initiate a variety of events and activities to support the local community, including the popular Love Where You Live and Coffee With A Copper programmes.

Having visited the Xscape restaurant some four years ago, I was truly amazed by the changes “back of house”. The kitchen has the latest “Experience of the Future” technology, and it was evident that Ken has a dedicated team who are very proud to be associated with the brand and enjoy the many opportunities on offer to progress their careers.
