Opened By Richard Banger in Des Plains, Illinois in 1955. ___________________________________________________________. McDonalds actually started in California, despite what the "official" company history claims. Two brothers converted their BBQ restaurant to a hamburger stand in San Berndarino, C…A. They developed the "Speedee Service" system. They opened several other franchises, including one in Phoenix, AZ and another in Downey, CA. The one in Downey, franchised in 1953, is still in operation, and it is the oldest McDonalds still in operation today. Ray Kroc, a milkshake machine salesman was so impressed with the restaurant system the McDonalds brothers had developed, he bought the whole company for $2 million. In 1955, he opened his first franchise in Des Plaines, IL. The "official" company history states that this was the first restaurant, or at least the first franchise. But, in fact, it was the fifth McDonalds and the fourth franchise. Note that the restaurant in Downey, which is still in operation, actually predates Kroc's buy-out by two years, but the company still maintains that the one in Des Plaines (which is no longer a restaurant, but houses a museum) was the first. That restaurant in San Bernardino, CA, by the way, was responsible for the birth of several other chains, including Taco Bell, Burger King, and Wienerschnetzel (although those chains didn't necessarily open in San Bernardino, they were conceived by workers at that very first McDonalds, and friends of the McDonalds brothers).. As far as the first McDonalds in Napa, California, it is more difficult to tell when it opened. An earlier response (above the line) said 1955, but I doubt that is the truth, since Kroc was just opening his first franchise in Des Plaines that particular year. (MORE)
One would surely be the "dinosaur" McDonalds at Kolb and Grant in Tucson, Arizona. The T-Rex in the front of the restaurant has been a ghost, Santa, has been veiled and carrying an Easter basket...and so on. It is a landmark.
I work at an American McDonald's, but we're close to the border of Canada, so we have a lot of Canadian customers. As far as menu items go, the Big'n'Tasty is called the Big Extra in Canada, and they seem to have "junior" meals available with small fries and drinks. American restaurants don't ha…ve the McRib, to the best of my knowledge, or hockey cards. Or Fruitopia, but they do have Hi-C Orange. As far as employee benefits go, Canadian McDonalds workers get a GoldCard which entitles them to half off any meal at any McD's in Canada or White Rock, and free soda at their restaurant. American McDonalds employees get one free meal per shift that can only be eaten on a half-hour lunch break (unless your shift isn't long enough for a half, in which you can eat on your ten minute break), and, though I don't know if this is the same nationally, one slip on the back of paycheques good for half off of one purchase up to five dollars, and we're prohibited from using it with dollar menu items. Also, taking as much as a soda when you're not "entitled" to it (read: not on break) is considered theft, and appropriate action is supposed to be taken by managers. ------------------------------------------------ I work at a Canadian McDonalds and we're a Franchise so we are not run by the corporate head office. The biggest differences that I notice is definitely the menu items. At my McDonalds we do NOT offer: The Big Extra OR the Big'n'Tasty. Twist cones (Chocolate&Vanilla ice cream) Frappes, Lemonade, or those cherry Ice slushies. 20 piece nuggets Honey Mustard sauce, ranch sauce, or buffalo sauce. Also our Jr.Chickens are the size of the American McChickens. Our McChickens are full size sandwiches that come with their own meal. We also don't have a dollar menu, we have an Extra Value Menu instead, with the cheapest item being $1.29 for a plain hamburger. Also American Sweet Tea is our Iced Tea. American Iced Tea is DISGUSTING! It's basically just cold tea. As far as employee benefits, it's actually called a Platinum card and it can be used at any McDonalds across Canada. It entitles us to 50% off everything on the menu including EVM items and drinks. We never get free meals unless a Manager is so inclined to promo our order. We only get free drinks 30 minutes before our shift, during our shift, and then 30 minutes after. I've never actually heard of Hockey cards, and the meal that the person above speaks of, the "junior meal" does not exist at my McDonalds. People ask for them ALL the time and we have to explain that they don't exist, at least not anymore. I'm also fairly close to the border as my McDonalds is in Ladner, BC.. which is about an 45 minute drive from the Peace Arch Washington border. We get a lot of American customers who ask for several things that we don't have on our menu. We also have issues with Canadian customers asking for American menu items due to TV Commercials. We even have an option on our tills for US Cash that does the exchange rate for us. I hope that gave some perspective! (MORE)

Answer 1955! First McDonalds Restaurant - Ray Kroc opened the Des Plaines, IL, restaurant in 1955.
It varies extremely based on location, experience, etc. I would say the average scale for an Assistant Store Manager runs between $27,000-$34,000 (I am an Assistant Store Manager myself and make around $32,000).\n. \nHonestly once you get into this point in McDonalds training the salary only gets b…etter and better, with General Store Managers making anywhere from $32,000-$48,000 (once again these figures vary based on many factors including whether its a corporate or franchise McDonalds).

This will depend on the location. Each McDonald's sets its own wages.. In many areas, cashiers start out at or near the federal minimum wage (currently $5.85 per hour.) Some states have higher minimum wages. For example, the minimum wage in Washington is $7.93 per hour, so cashiers will make at lea…st that much. In other areas, the cost of living is higher, or employees are harder to find, so McDonald's pays more than the minimum wage. (MORE)
When I was living there, it seems that there were alot of McDonnalds. I'd estimate 50-100 for the entire country
McDonald's China website lists 759 different store locations. The website also claims that there are 693 "24 hour" service locations but the list provided only had 344 locations. Forbes claims that there are "875 retail outlets across China" Hope this helps. Additional Information: China'…s McDonalds are filled a lot more than USA's McDonalds. The KFC's are just as popular in China. (MORE)
There are 48 McDonald's restaurants in all of Greece and therestaurant is losing popularity due to a Greek preference for localfood rather than standardized food. It is estimated that over100,000 people eat at McDonald's in Athens alone, but the totalnumber of customers in Greece is not available.
The world is being threatened by this kind of preposterous thing! Its an outrage! On top of that, we can't even sue them. The world is being destroyed and being made in to McDonald's KFC, Taco Bell, Ell pollo loco, and more. Our environment is being destroyed for this!?!?!?!? And they say it;s our c…hoice if we sould eat it or not! (MORE)
Not advisable ... pedestrians should never use a car lane for ordering fast food. There is a safety issue here - this is why the inside is preferred.

According to McDonald's Corporation 2008 annual report, they anticipate opening 1,000 new restaurants in 2009, and adding 200 McCafÃ©s (mainly in France and Germany), for a total of 1,200 new locations. This works out to an average of 100 new restaurant openings per month, or one every 7.2 hour…s, worldwide. Of course, this is a confabulated schedule; McDonald's doesn't really open a new restaurant every 7.2 hours. In addition to opening new restaurants, McDonald's also anticipates closing 750-850 old locations, so the net gain is only 350-450 stores. At the end of 2008, there were 31,976 McDonald's in operation. The company owns only 20% of the total, or 6,502; the remaining 80%, or 25,474 restaurants, were owned by franchisees. (MORE)

Richmond, British Columbia, Canada in 1967. The next was in Costa Rica in 1970, then Japan, The Netherlands, Germany and Australia in 1971.
No, McDonald's is not a healthy restaurant. Just the opposite, itis very unhealthy. Their foods for the most part are high fat,contain lots of preservatives and additives, and lack anysubstantial amounts of nutrients.
No Mcdonalds is not a five star restaurant it is a fast food restaurant It would not qualify as a one star restaurant.

No timetable for that as yet, nothing but rumors. Chances are, it will never happen, because all veggie sandwiches have been tried at other places, and have been failures, not selling well at all.
about a minimun of 7 cooking and rest 4 on tills or something :) Xx
Probably Antarica ... . Definitely Antarctica. Not enough scientists and researchers to support any business, not to mention the logistics of delivering supplies. I don't think the Emperor Penguins would mind a Filet-o-Fish, but they have no money. I found out on Disney XD which is worty an XD!

Her name was Harriet Charleson. She was, I think restaurant #3, located at 901 E. Main St in Alhambra, CA. I believe, in 1953. She bought the franchise from the McDonald's brothers in San Bernardino, CA, a few years before Ray Kroc started working as the franchise agent for the McDonald's. About …10 years later, she sold the franchise back to McDonalds, by then Ray Kroc had exclusive rights to the name. This location is still in business, although the original red/white tile building was torn down around 1970, replaced by a updated version that was remodeled thru the years. Currently (Aug 2011) has been torn down again to be replaced by a brand new building. (MORE)

Umm... I don't know, but I like cheeseburger, spicy chicken wings ( spicy food is neccecery in Asia) chicken nuggets, ( who says asians can't eat mild food?) and DIET COKE!
No, it is not sedentary work. Managers have times when they have tosit and do paperwork, but they also have times when they arehelping on the lines.
McDonald's is likely to be the most well known restaurant in theworld, though there are others that would be considered morefamous, due to the qulaity of food they sell and other factors.
We visited the Emerald Isle in 2007, while in Ennis we happened upon a fastfood restaurant eerily similar to McDonalds....I don't remember the name but pretty sure it was also a typical Irish name, almost a play on the word (NAME) McDonalds. I'd seen other fast food restaurants with the same name in… other Irish towns we visited. The fish sandwich was excellent, it was cod, I think, and the chips (fries) were also tasty. Along with my drink the meal cost about Euro 15.00 which translates to almost US$ 20....quite high for a medium-sized town. It seemed like the chain got 99.44% of its marketing ideas from the Golden Arches, just wondering! (MORE)

According to the McDonald's website, there were 152 McDonald's restaurants in Switzerland as of February 2012. There were also 27 McCafÃ©s, but some of these are co-sited with the restaurants.
The first McDonald's was created in 1948 by Richard and Mac McDonald. Afterwards, the company was sold to another owner and branched out across the world.
There are over 100 countries without McDonald's restaurants.Iceland, Ghana, Tajikistan and Yemen are four of these.
Most McDonald's restaurants are franchises. That means that the restaurant is owned by the franchisee and not by McDonald's. How employees are or are not paid during down time like a renovation is up to the individual business owner and will not e the same at all McDonald's restaurants.
