Close to 100 new workers will be hired once the 4th branch of McDonald’s will be opened in Dumaguete City right across Negros Oriental Provincial Hospital in the coming months.
Representatives of McDonald’s, a global fast-food chain, pay a courtesy call on Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo to express their appreciation of the policies and efforts adopted by the City Government so that the local economy can safely and gradually reopen by controlling the COVID-19 pandemic.
Mayor Remollo stressed that the significant downgrading of the alert level status, zero active cases, the achievement of being the city with the highest vaccination rate of 141.56% in Central Visayas exceeding the 80.67% goal for herd immunity set by the Department of Health and the continued vigilance and cooperation of the residents and establishment owners contributed to the relaxation of health protocols and restrictions thus allowing the resumption of regulated sports activities, mass gatherings and face-to-face classes.
Currently, all essential establishments are operating 24-hours including restaurants like McDonald’s.
In the coming months more investments and jobs opportunities are expected that will benefit the people of the capital city and province of Negros Oriental.
McDonald’s Operations Consultant Cyla Corra, Operations Manager Renelle Gamo and Calindagan Branch General Manager Alvin Empase also assured Mayor Remollo that they will continue to sponsor sports events that will be hosted by the City Government.
With regards to the hiring of crew and managers for the soon-to-open 4th branch, McDonald’s will coordinate with the City Public Employment Service Office or PESO Dumaguete.
