FOR more than 20 years Richard and Annie Hill have been dedicated to their local community.

From opening the first Kalgoorlie McDonald’s restaurant in 1997, the Hill family now proudly operate the McDonald’s branches in Ellenbrook, Morley, Morley Galleria, Northam, Beechboro and are delighted to open the doors to their new restaurant in Mundaring on November 5.

The Hill family are passionate about supporting local community groups and have partnered with Rotary, Lions and the Salvation Army, along with sporting groups from every code.

Annie and Richard Hill met as teenagers working at McDonald’s. They now own 5 McDonald’s franchises. Pictured with their kids Jennifer (21), Thomas (19, hair tied back) and Nicholas (16), two of whom work at McDonald’s.

“We want to give back to the communities which support us, our kids all participated in local sport and we know how hard it is to fundraise,” Annie said.

“We loan out marquees and drinks dispensers for sports carnivals and community festivals and provide encouragement awards to sporting clubs.”

The Hills are passionate about helping sick children through their involvement in the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC), having formed the inaugural Kalgoorlie ball in 2001.

Richard and Annie are still supporters of the RMHC Balls, McHappy Day, Ride for Sick Kids and Central Park Plunge.

Annie now dedicates her time to mentoring for 12 Buckets, an organisation which strives to equip students with the skills, support and connections needed to build a strong future.

“Our restaurant teams live, work and play locally, we are very proud they share our passion to give back and always support the various charitable initiatives throughout the year,” Richard said.

Richard and Annie look forward to working with the local Mundaring community and welcome you to come down to visit them at the restaurant.
