McDonald's founder - October 15th, 2010

McDonald's founders (Dick and Mac McDonald) 1ST venture into the food business was in 1937, when they opened a hot dog stand in Arcadia, California (which they coincidentally purchased from another MacDonald, Erin Elizabeth).

They opened the first McDonald's restaurant on May 15, 1940, in San Bernardino, California. Hamburgers proved to be their most popular product, so in 1948 the brothers introduced their "Speedee Service System," a streamlined assembly line for hamburgers that allowed them to produce burgers quickly and inexpensively.

Their cheap burgers were very successful, and in 1953 they began to franchise McDonald's restaurants. Entrepreneur Ray Kroc visited the first restaurant in 1953, and sensing its potential and oversaw its worldwide expansion.
