Despite its fame and global success, there are many facts that people do not know about this fast-food chain. Here are 20 interesting facts about McDonald’s.

It was founded in 1940

McDonald’s was founded in 1940 by siblings Richard and Maurice McDonald. Their first restaurant was completely unrecognizable to what the chain is today and was located on the corner of 1398 North E Street and West 14th Street in San Bernardino, California. In 1948, the brothers decided to implement the Speedee Service System in their restaurant. Two decades earlier, this system had been introduced by White Castle. At McDonald’s, it was used to put in place many of the principles of a modern day fast food restaurant. Ray Kroc became involved in the business and it was he who was responsible for getting the trademark for the business. He later bought the McDonald brothers equity in the business and gradually forced them out of the company they had founded. The company is now run by a board of directors and led by chairman Enrique Hernandez and Steve Easterbrook, who serves as both president and CEO of McDonald’s Corporation.
