McDonald’s opens its maiden all-women drive-thru restaurant in Gujarat

The objective is to support women who are constantly in a search for work in rural India


McDonald’s has opened its first-ever all-women crew drive-thru restaurant in Ekta Nagar, Gujarat.

It has hired around 28 women from nearby villages to run its drive-thru restaurant, which is closer to the Unity of Statue in Ekta Nagar in Gujarat.

Around 90 per cent of the women crew hired for the restaurant, were from the GMR Foundation, working for the development of under-served communities through initiatives in education, health and livelihoods.

The women crew have been trained as per FSSAI guidelines on all the necessary safety, hygiene and other restaurant procedures.

This restaurant is spread over 17,000 sq. ft, with a seating capacity for over 100 people and offers ample parking space that can fit up to 60 cars and 50 bikes at a time.

Smita Jatia, MD, Westlife Development, says, “We believe that this initiative will enable us to strengthen our commitment towards diversity and inclusion as well as fostering communities, by bringing in more women from the region to the workforce.”
