BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - McDonald’s franchisees said they expect to hire approximately 2,600 restaurant employees in Birmingham and the surrounding area.

Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin helped kick off the hiring blitz. He even worked the drive-thru.

“McDonald’s has always been a pillar in our community,” said Mayor Woodfin. “As small businesses, each of the local McDonald’s franchisees play a vital role in Birmingham’s economy.
