Difficult to find, not impossible. Search RefUSA by geographic area under name of chain (McDonalds)and specify Executive Type = Owner or President. Or use the UFOC (Uniform Franchise Offering Circular). It includes a list of franchisees but it may not be complete. Franchisors are only required to list a set number. Some restaurant companies include everyone but others only publish the minimum. This link will take you to a complete description of a UFOC on Frandata, a company who obtains UFOCs from individual states and resells them. This is the source we have used in the past. I think you can call a state directly and not pay a middle man but we have always opted for the easier route. http://www.frandata.com/products/ufocs1.asp
