A Northern Metro McDonald's franchisee knows that pounds of french fries can add up. Now, they're adding them up to help kids and families in medical need.
Brighton McDonald's owner Brian Boselli hosted a Ronald McDonald House charity event from Dec. 4.
"Owner-operators, including myself from the Brighton stores, have donated more than $300,000 to the McDonald's House this year- $243k was the total donated annually from a penny per pound of fries, and $70k is the donations from happy meals sold for 2022," Boselli said.
Boselli opened his latest McDonald's franchise Oct. 20 at 4833 E. Bridge St.
The Ronald McDonald House provides temporary housing for families at no cost that travels to Denver near the hospital where their children are receiving treatment.
"Between the two Denver Ronald McDonald houses they are able to serve 118 families each night, " Boselli said.
Boselli's newest franchise has been open for five weeks. The store never hosted a grand opening, so instead they are hosting a fundraiser for the McDonald's House and will have grand opening events at the restaurant.
"Since we have opened, it's been a great turnout. The community has been fantastic and we really want to do something to give back to the house. So we thought we'd incorporate the grand opening with it," he said.
For every donation of an item on the Ronald McDonald Charity wish list, guests will receive a free coffee and enter to win a $100 gift card or Mcdonald's for a year. The event includes face painting, raffle prizes, games, and food give away.
"There lot of ways for people to give at McDonald's. The McDonald's franchisee proceeds from every happy meal sold. We give a penny for every pound of french fries sold, which doesn't sound like a lot, but it's amazing how many french fries we sell," Boselli said.
There is also a Ronald McDonald House in Colorado Springs. Ronald McDonald House Charity also hosted its annual "Light the House Radiothon" on Dec. 1 on air with KOSI 101.1.
"The Ronald McDonald House organization is near and dear to my heart and I am thankful for all the support we as a community can give them," Boselli said.
