Origins : the Mc Donald’s brothers

Once upon a time, a businessman named Ray Kroc discovered a restaurant owned * by two brothers. The restaurant served just four things: hamburgers, French fries, milk shakes and coke.  But it was clean and inexpensive, and the service was quick.

Mr Kroc liked it so much that he paid the brothers so that he could use their idea and their name: Mc Donald’s.

Mc Donald’s: the beginning of success

Beef *, big business and fast service were the ingredients when Mr Kroc opened his first Mc Donald’s in 1955. Four years later, there were 100 of them. Kroc knew* Americans liked success. Now, there are more than 13,000 Mc Donald’s restaurants from Dallas to Paris and from Moscow to Beijing.

Mc Donald’s training

Anyone who wants to open a Mc Donald’s must* first work in one for a week. Then, they do a nine-month training programme*, in the restaurants and at ‘Mc Donald’s University’ in Chicago. There, they learn* the Mc Donald’s philosophy: quality control, service, cleanliness and cheap prices. Mc Donald’s has strict rules, Hamburgers must be served before they are ten minutes old, and French fries, seven.


Mc Donald’s has never stopped looking for* new methods to attract customers*, from drive-in windows to birthday parties. Chicken, fish, salad and, in some places, pizza are now on the menu. Mc Donald’s in Holland even sells* a vegetarian burger.
