In the early 1950s, brothers Dick and Mac McDonald started the very first McDonalds restaurant in San Bernardino, California. Inspired by the growing popularity of the fast food restaurant, Ray Kroc, a milkshake maker salesman, decided to drive out to California to discuss turning the restaurant into a company of franchise stores. In 1955, Ray opened the restaurants first franchise store in Des Plaines, Iowa and history was made. Today, there are thousands of McDonalds restaurants all over the world. Offering everything from the signature Big Mac and the egg McMuffin to classic milkshakes and Happy Meals, McDonalds is as popular today as it ever was with generations of loyal customers and fans whove grown up savoring the delectable items from the restaurants ever-changing menu.
