England International Cricketer Ravi Bopara visits McDonald

The record-breaking England international cricketer, Ravi Bopara, was given a guided tour of the kitchen and staff training centre, when he visited McDonald’s restaurant in Southall on Wednesday.

Ravi Bopara, who earlier this year claimed the best bowling figures by an Englishman in a Twenty20 international cricket match, was invited to visit the restaurant by McDonald’s franchisee, Atul Pathak. Ravi subsequently agreed to pay a visit to Atul and to meet his employees, many of whom are huge cricket fans.

During his visit, Ravi had the opportunity to go into the kitchen to see how food is freshly prepared and cooked for the thousands of customers who are served at the restaurant each day. In addition, Ravi toured the recently launched state-of-the-art training centre, with its accredited examination facility, which enables staff to obtain nationally recognised qualifications, including a Level 2 Apprenticeship in Multi-Skilled Hospitality. After the guided tour, Ravi sat down with Atul and enjoyed a Quarter Pounder meal.

Speaking about his visit to the restaurant, Ravi Bopara said: “Everyone at the restaurant was extremely friendly. I was very impressed by the work that Atul is doing to create opportunities for his staff through apprenticeships.

He added: “As a sportsman it’s important for me to be aware of the food that I am eating and I learned of a lot about the provenance of the food during my visit, including that the meat in the burgers is one hundred percent beef.”

Atul Pathak, franchisee for McDonald’s in Southall said: “I was extremely pleased when Ravi accepted my invitation to visit the restaurant. I found him to be extremely down to earth and humble. He was also great at interacting with my staff and customers who were all thrilled to meet a cricket hero.”
