According to recent state and city records, a new McDonald’s will be built up at 2050 Alafaya Trail in Oviedo.
The restaurant will be run by local owner & operator Mike Yontz, a Florida native whose long career with McDonald’s has taken him around the country.
“Mike Yontz moved his family from their home in Florida to the Tucson area for the opportunity to own a McDonald’s store. Moving was not his first choice, but necessary if he wanted a store,” a profile on Product Mastery Now states.
“Mike started for McDonald’s when he was 14, working with his father. He credits his father, also a McDonald’s man, for modeling outstanding customer service and how to manage a business. His father’s standards were “extremely high” and he always valued his customers. Starting at McDonald’s as a fryer, his father grew his career to managing 60 stores for an owner and then eventually getting his own franchise. Unfortunately, he died unexpectedly a year later.”
Apart from the City of Oviedo’s construction note—”New McDonalds Drive Through Restaurant on Chapman Road and Alafaya Trail”—and approval of the project, little else is known about the project.
No opening date has been set.
