McDonald’s, founded in San Bernadino, California in the year 1940, is one of the most iconic restaurants in both the United States and across the world.

Currently located in over 100 countries, McDonald’s is by far the world’s largest restaurant chain as it serves approximately 69 million people per day. Additionally, McDonald’s is the fourth-largest employer in the world, as it currently employs over 1.7 million employees.

The fast-food chain sells classic items such as burgers, fries, soda, chicken sandwiches, breakfast food, milkshakes, wraps, salads, and desserts.

McDonald’s famously turned into the behemoth it is today following the 1955 introduction of businessman Ray Kroc, who purchased the founder’s equity in the company and began to bring the brand to a national and global level.

Dramatized in the movie The Founder, Kroc was played by Michael Keaton.
