McDonald's India opened its first family restaurant at Basant Lok in Oct, 1996. Today it has 132 Restaurants across India.

  4. 4. • Chicken: A typical McDonald’s chicken supplier conducts nearly 2,000 safety and quality checks everyday. • Potatoes: 95 separate quality and safety checks each day by our potato suppliers. b) The service operations to serve the customers inside the restaurant. The McDonald's service mantra QSC&V When asked to explain McDonald's success, executive told us that, "We take the burger business more seriously than anyone else." From the day Mc Donald’s was opened, they guarantee to give their customers high quality products, served quickly and with a smile, in a clean and enjoyable environment, and all at a fair price. Quality, Service, Cleanliness and Value (QSC&V) became the philosophy that drove McDonald's business. McDonald's Quality Management holds the culture of quality through such principles as being customer treated, managing with facts, valuing people, and continually improving every aspect of their business. Service that is fast and friendly is always has been a foundation for success at McDonald's. Cleanliness for them means having the cleanest and freshest facilities from the kitchen to the rest rooms. Value at McDonald's means the total experience great food, friendly folks, a clean environment, quick and accurate service and fun. Production &Operation Management 4
  5. 5. At Mc Donald’s they provide self service. They are enough intelligent and to know the culture of India. McDonald's India has developed a special menu with vegetarian selections to suit Indian tastes and preferences. McDonald's does not offer any beef or pork items in India. Only the freshest chicken, fish and vegetable products find their way into our Indian restaurants. In addition, they've re-formulated some of their products using spices favored by Indians. They also created egg-less sandwich sauces for their vegetarian customers, offering a larger variety to their vegetarian consumers. They understand the standard of living in India, create employment and participated in local communities (like: pulse polio, girl-child, Mc Donald’s spot light, etc.) so that they can be the part of India and every one adapts them. c) Service operations to ensure timely home delivery. They have fixed steps for quick service and timely home delivery. They only follow these steps in correct manner. They take approx. 3 minutes to make one normal burger. This is possible because, they do every thing in a systematic way. For home delivery they have preplanned timings of different operations. Phone Operator – takes order and places order further. He/She also notes the area and address of the customer, so he/she can give the job to that delivery boy which is familiar with that area for quick service Time taken (Approx 4 Min.) Executives, who are involved in making food – makes the food, packs it and staple the address slip and bill with the packet. Time taken (Approx 4 Min.) Delivery boy – delivers the order to its end point with smile Time taken (According to the distance) Production &Operation Management 5
  6. 6. In this process we like that they keep the records of their previous customers and the delivery boy’s name who has last visited to that address which helps them to deliver order at time and fresh. d) Housekeeping operations inside restaurant. In Mc Donald’s the house keeping operations are taken by all their employees in different shifts by doing this they make every employee equal. They have not outsourced any service provider for their housekeeping. By this they reduce their revenues also. They have made a check list for housekeeping and perform operations according to that list. The following are the some attributes on which they regularly check their place. Area Cleanliness: Smell/Odour: Running Water: Hand wash/Soap: Hand dryer/towels: Toilet paper: State of the floor: State of the toilet: Toilet checklist: They have special exterior & Interior Property Maintenance Checklist. The sample design of that check list is given below: Trash, refuse, debris, rubbish, litter deposited or stored on property.

Chimneys, cooling towers, and smoke stacks cleaned and painted where required. Stairs, ramps, porches/decks, and other walking surfaces cleaned. Kitchen area cleaned.

  7. 7. All the equipments used for cooking checked. Gas or oil equipments checked. Emergency escape windows checked. f) Analyze the shortcomings in the above operations and suggest improvements. 1. They should remove self service because it will give more time to customers to enjoy. 2. Sometime customer has to wait for his order so Mc Donald’s has to do some thing to improve that. They can make more advance strategies for making the burgers 3. They should clean dustbins thrice a day because on occasions there are more customers than from a usual day. McDonald's might one day serve on the moon Production &Operation Management 7
