Four McDonald’s staff from Weston Super Mare have been selected, from over 87,000 across the country, to work at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The four specially selected crew members are amongst a 2,000 strong squad of McDonald’s staff that have been chosen following a rigorous test of their speed, customer service and ability to work as part of a team – all essential skills to deliver the ultimate customer experience during London 2012.
Brad Mousley, 18, from Weston super Mare explains how he feels about being chosen to be part of the McDonald’s Olympic Champion Crew: “I feel so lucky to have been selected out of so many people. Being given the chance to work at the Games will be the biggest recognition of my hard work yet and it’s a great feeling knowing how proud my family is of my achievement.
Anna Siuda, 23, from Weston super Mare has also been selected and comments: “I think the most challenging thing will be keeping up with the volume of customers, but I am really excited to be working in the busiest McDonald’s restaurants in the country and meeting lots of new people.”
Local McDonald’s franchisee, Tim Lamb, comments: “I’m delighted that so many staff from across Weston Super Mare have been chosen to take part in this fantastic opportunity. McDonald’s was looking for its very best people. ”
The crew will travel to London this summer to work across the four temporary McDonald’s restaurants in and around the Olympic park. They will play a key role in serving an estimated 1.75 million meals in 29 days to 9.7 million spectators, a workforce of 200,000 and 17,000 athletes and team officials quickly and safely. Staff will work for between 7-10 days at their nominated restaurant.
