As reported by Reuters in October, McDonald’s was nearing a deal worthy of US$ 400 million (RM 1.7 billion!) to franchise the outlets to Reza group (also owns and runs McDonald’s outlets in the western and southern regions of Saudi Arabia).

This Lionhorn deal is in line with McDonald’s plans to bring in partners in Asia as it switches to a less capital-intensive franchise model.

The company said it has now franchised about 1300 outlets as part of its target to become 95% franchised by the end of 2018.
