Look for the golden arches, you deserve a break today, we love to see you smile,I'm lovin' it, two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun, these are all slogans that McDonald's has used for the last 65 years. Many of you had questions on the heath and history of the golden arches, so i did some research. Within my research i found many intriguing things such as how McDonald's began, facts about the franchise, and information on the food's nutritional value.
First, let's travel back to 1940, when the first McDonald's was opened, and learn a little from referenceforbusiness.com about background information on McDonald's corperation. Dick and Mac McDonald opened their first restaurant, McDonald's Barbecue grill, which became popular for its 15 cent burgers. But, the traditional McDonald's didn't open until 1955 by Ray Kroc. He realized that McDonald's was using eight of the high-tech multimixer milkshake machines that he sold and was intrigued, so he went to visit the brothers. He couldn't believe how many sales the brothers had and suggested that they open a franchise, but the brothers weren't interested. Kroc took it into his own hands and made it into the McDonald's that we know today.
McDonald's franchise has grown and expanded over the years and has become the largest fast food franchise in the world. An article comparing fast food figures, nutrition facts, and controversies from CompareCamp.com shares the images displayed in the slide show behind me. The image informs us that McDonald's is the largest fast food revenue and has a value more than $85.7 billion, `which is more than the combined value of the other top 9 fast food brands. Mcdonald's is present in 119 countries and employs around 1.8 million people. Does McDonalds foods lack of nutrition relate to the obesity problem in America?.
Weather or not McDonald's is to blame, child obesity is a growing problem.
