Corby and East Northants MP Louise Mensch learned the art of fast food cookery when she dropped into McDonald’s.
She visited the restaurant in Corporation Street, Corby, to find out how it is providing employment and training opportunities for young people in the town.
And during her fact-finding mission, the MP rustled up a filet-o-fish.
Shae Doran, the Corby restaurant’s business manager, said: “The visit was a great opportunity for Louise to learn about all we’re doing to help develop our staff – and how we’re providing the town with jobs, a total of 160 between the two town restaurants.
“The MP clearly had a keen interest in the employment and development of her younger constituents.
“As a company, we offer qualifications at every level of employment, from free online-supported Level 1 and 2 adult literacy and numeracy for the new staff, to Level 2 NVQ in hospitality and Level 2 and 3 NVQs for shift managers, right through to a foundation degree in business management.
“We also discussed some of the environmental initiatives the company has taken recently, such as recycling all our used cooking oil into biodiesel to fuel our delivery lorries, our future closed-loop recycling program for staff uniforms, and the fact that almost all restaurants nationally recycle all corrugated cardboard and plastic milk bottles.”
