About McDonald’s USA

McDonald’s is an American-based multinational fast food chain, founded in 1940 as a restaurant operated by Richard and Maurice McDonald, in San Bernardino, California, United States.

They rechristened their business as a hamburger stand, and later turned the company into a franchise, with the Golden Arches logo being introduced in 1953 at a location in Phoenix, Arizona. In 1955, Ray Kroc (1902–1984), a businessman, joined the company as a franchise agent and proceeded to purchase the chain from the McDonald brothers.

McDonald’s had its previous headquarters in Oak Brook, Illinois, but moved its global headquarters to Chicago in June 2018. McDonald’s is the world’s largest restaurant chain by revenue, serving over 69 million customers daily in over 100 countries in more than 40.000 outlets as of 2021.

McDonald’s is best known for its hamburgers, cheeseburgers, and french fries, although its menus include other items like chicken, fish, fruit, and salads. Their most well-known licensed item on the menu would be their French fries with the Big Mac close behind. – Source: Wikipedia
