In 1954, Ray Kroc was a Multimixer salesman. He visited a small, successful restaurant in San Bernardino. The effectiveness of the operation and the fact that the menu focused on a few items, allowed them to provide quality meals and quick service. The following year, the owners were looking for a franchising agent. Mr. Kroc founded the McDonald’s System, Inc. By 1958, he had sold over 100 million hamburgers, and a few years later, he bought exclusive rights to the McDonald’s name.

As a result of his rapid expansion, there were more than 700 U.S. restaurants by 1965. Development continued to international markets in 1967. The system he built used uniform preparation methods to ensure menu items tasted the same everywhere. He persuaded all franchisees and suppliers to work together towards the same goal: quality service, cleanliness and value.” This consistency created an innovative supply system that was integrated and efficient. It helped the brand grow by leaps and bounds.

From perfecting the burger to adding breakfast sandwiches, chicken nuggets and the McFlurry, McDonald’s is continuously innovating and adapting to new trends and technology.

Training And Support
