McDonalds History

McDonald’s began in 1940 when Richard and Maurice McDonald opened a restaurant in San Bernardino, California.

In 1948, they introduced the Speedee Service System which was the beginning of “fast food”.

In 1955, Ray Kroc opened the 9th location (a franchise).  Kroc would later purchase the company from the brothers.

In 1965, the company went public.

In 1967, Ronald McDonald was created as the company mascot.

Today, the company is the world’s largest hamburger chain.  There are over 33,000 locations in 119 countries worldwide.  The McDonald’s corporate office is located in Oak Brook, Illinois.

Dear Mr. Easterbrook CEO, I read your comment about your company performing poorly today in the Chicago Tribune. Since I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease, which is an allergy to wheat, barley, rye, malt and for some oats, I have found it difficult to eat in your restaurants. Also, the population of the USA, China, Japan, Germany and other developed countries is aging with many of us eating healthier! I am thrilled that some select McDonald locations will be offering healthier breakfast fare with kale and quinoa! Many families have a family member or friend that has to go gluten free. They often will not eat at a eatery that does not offer at least a few gluten free choices! Please consider offering GF and healthier fare. Also, I have found that your employees have been hard working and polite overall.Sincerely, Mary Beth Kunath

I need to contract Mr. Steve EasterBrook via email about a vibrant new market creating idea where technical and non-technical manufactured items, tools, equipment, including machines… etc are bought, sold, and used continuously to increase technical, scientific skills of our citizens.Remember “YouTube”.
Partnering with you Steve or McDonalds would be a good promotional for both of us.
Over the years I have accumulated a vast amount of technical knowledge

Corporates response:

Hello Cal:

Thank you for contacting McDonald’s. I appreciate this opportunity to share some information with you about our menu items.

We care about what you and your family eat. That’s why we take great pride in the quality of our food. Since our first restaurant was built, we have purchased quality ingredients from trusted, industry-leading brands. We also carefully monitor our products, distribution and storage procedures; and use state-of-the-art computerized preparation methods in our restaurants. Not only do we meet government standards, but in many cases, we exceed them with our own strict quality control.

Every day, in every one of our restaurants around the world, our family promises to serve a quality meal every time to your family…we call it our quality promise. We don’t think of quality as an extra ingredient that gets added on whenever it’s called for. It’s the main ingredient – an irreplaceable element in every recipe.

For further information on our top quality food items, please visit our web site for food related inquires.

Again, thank you to taking the time to contact us and we look forward to serving you again soon under the Golden Arches.
