McDonald's Philippines' Dr. Yang shares love to front liners on Anniversary

Dr. George T. Yang, Chairman, and Co-Founder of McDonald's Philippines

In September 1981, McDonald’s opened its first store in the Philippines in Morayta, Manila. Every September is a very special month for McDonald's as they celebrate the birthday of Dr. George T. Yang, Chairman and Co-Founder of McDonald's Philippines, and the founding anniversary of McDonald's. However, in this time of a pandemic, Dr. Yang and the whole McDonald's family are celebrating it differently this year as they thank the front liners who brave the virus to go to work and serve customers everyday.


Recognizing the malasakit of the company’s employees to serve customers and the community amid the pandemic, McDonald’s Philippines Chairman and Founder, Dr. George T. Yang expressed his gratitude through a short music video:


Known for his singing prowess, particularly for classical music, Dr. Yang sang a few lines dedicated to their own employees, and all healthcare workers, as a montage of photos appeared of McDonald’s frontliners working tirelessly to serve Filipinos during these challenging times.

Seen in the video as well would be the McDo Kindness Kitchen, an initiative of the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC), which has been able to distribute close to 300,000 meals to different frontliners and communities in need.

Almost 40 years later, the Golden Arches has become part of the lives of Filipinos, with thousands of directly hired employees serving customers McDonald’s world-famous menu items, as well as local favorites in over 600 restaurants nationwide.


Happy birthday McDonald’s and Dr. George Yang!
