History of McDonald’s
McDonald’s was founded in 1940 by brothers Richard and Maurice McDonald, who opened the first restaurant in San Bernardino, California. In 1948, they introduced the “Speedee Service System” for fast food preparation, which established the principles of fast food restaurants.

Today, McDonald’s is the world’s largest fast-food chain with over 36,000 locations in more than 100 countries. While continuously evolving its menu, McDonald’s remains famous for classics like the Big Mac, McNuggets, and French fries.
