    Read “Behind the Arches”. Along with Sam Walton’s book you will find Ray bought a system. If you would create wealth for your people give them a workable pattern, a successful template to follow…

    The secrets of MacDonald’s success were excellent management systems and processes which resulted in superb uniformity, utmost convenience and very low prices. Quality and healthfulness of the food – not so much, but clearly these were not important qualities to the huge MacDonald’s market.

    The spelling of his last name is actually Kroc. The first McDonald’s was actually opened in Des Plaines, IL where I grew up. We started eating there in 1955 when they first opened. Only hired young men then- no women allowed which bothered me as the Civil Rights Act had not yet been enacted when I wanted to work there. Speedo was their mascot. The restaurant is still there- they turned it into a museum with 1950’s autos out front and male mannequins inside wearing soda jerk outfits- white shirt, white pants, black belt and soda jerk caps. Hamburgers were $.15, fries $.10. and sodas $.10.
