While many are the loyal clients of the McDonald’s, not all them are conscious of who invented McDonald’s. The concept of this fast food restaurant was created by Mac and Dick Macdonald in 1940 when they shifted their hot dog stand from Monrovia Airport to the 14th and E Street at United States Route 66, San Bernadino, California. During Graham MacDonald , they realized that their hamburgers were selling like hot cakes. Eight decades later, they eventually changed their company by making use of the Speedee Service System. The system was supposed to make a lineup of production on burgers made before they had been ordered. The concept then conquered the business and was completely in contrast to normal restaurants.

They made history by cutting out almost half of the opponents. The rapid development of their business resulted in them decreasing more costs and thus has been the key towards to McDonald’s success. In 1953, Mac and Dick Macdonald chose to make their fast food restaurant to the franchise scheme. At that very same year, the second and third restaurants were opened in Saginaw, Michigan and Downey, California.

Later in 1955, an entrepreneur named Ray Kroc made an arrangement with the two guys who invented McDonald’s to start up the McDonald’s Systems Incorporation. His entrance to the business made a fantastic impact to the evolution of McDonald’s. He open the ninth franchise restaurant in Des Plaines, Illinois and further enhanced the sales until 1958 the firm achieved the 100 millionth hamburger marketed. In 1959, it had been reported that more than 100 franchises are opened.

To expand the work of the fast food restaurant, Kroc then started their first billboard advertisement in 1959. He renamed the company into McDonald’s Corporation in 1960 and bought up the Macdonald brothers in 1961. The discussions weren’t done nicely and Kroc and the Macdonald brothers went different ways. This information appeared to be incredibly awful in United States and the Macdonald’s family wrote about their bargain with Kroc and promoted their side of this story.

In 1961, McDonald’s Corporation launched a Hamburger University to pioneer the training of franchise owners. This was to maintain the franchisees’ loyalties due to this highly competitive sector. The business continued with their business expansion and attained its 100 billionth hamburger offered in 1963. The organization’s 500th franchise was opened in Toledo, Ohio.
