McDonald's Corp. said it plans to hire 75,000 new employees in China this year as the fast food chain seeks to expand in the world's most populous country.

According to Bloomberg, the new hiring represents an increase of as much as 83 percent of the Oak Brook, Illinois-based company's workforce in the Asian nation. McDonald's currently has over 90,000 employees in China currently.

McDonald's plans to increase the number of outlets on the mainland by 300 to 2,000 this year. The Big Mac seller opened 256 stores in the Asian nation in 2012.

The new positions announced today will consist mostly of store staff and 2,000 jobs will be for coffee baristas at its McCafe outlets, according to the report. The number of McCafes will increase by 45 percent this year to 750, it said.
