Ray Kroc was the one who created the restaurant, though he was never the one who introduced the first McDonald’s in his hometown.
He was the company’s CEO for 15 years from 1962 to 1977 and was instrumental in McDonald’s expansion, opening up the first ever franchised store in 1962 and in the process, McDonald’s became the fast food chain it still remains today. He was also credited for the development of the Quarter Pounder, the Big Mac, and the french fries.
A French McDonald’s is a fast food restaurant that sells breakfast, lunch and dinner with a focus on fresh food. The McDonald’s French sandwich is a hamburger with a slice of brie cheese.
