About McDonald’s

Ray Kroc joined the Red Cross as an ambulance driver in 1917 when he was 15 years old by lying about his age, but the war ended before he could complete his training.

He then held jobs as a multi-mixer salesman, a pianist, and a paper cup salesman. He went to a restaurant in San Bernardino, California that had bought a number of Multimixers in 1954.

He was astounded by the efficiency of the McDonald brothers’ small but prosperous establishment when he discovered it.

Burgers, fries, and beverages made up the majority of the McDonald’s brothers’ menu, which allowed them to concentrate on providing high-quality, efficient service.

Kroc recognized a chance when they were seeking a new franchising representative. In 1955, he founded McDonald’s System, Inc., a predecessor of the McDonald’s Corporation, and six years later bought the exclusive rights to the McDonald’s name and operating system. By 1958, McDonald’s had sold its 100 millionth hamburger.
