The Black McDonald's Operators Association (www.bmoachicagoland.org) is a membership organization comprised of 15 Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana-area McDonald's restaurant owners. While contributing to the success of McDonald's as the world's leading food service retailer, BMOA members are also committed to exhibiting leadership, supporting education and developing partnerships within the African-American communities that they serve.
With its well-attended special events, promotions, community outreach activities and sponsorships, the BMOA of Chicago contributes handsomely to the success of McDonald's as the world's leading food service retailer.
