The Golden Arches!
Ever since 1955, McDonalds has proudly served the world
with over 33,000 stores in 118 countries. They`ve served
the world with some of it`s favorite foods and drinks.
Along the way, McDonalds has created more and more
history from the Big Mac to fries and chicken nuggets.
Each meal has their very own story behind it. And
they`re just getting started…
The Ray Kroc Story
In 1954, at the age of 52, Ray Kroc invested his life savings to become the
exclusive distributor of a milk shake maker called the Multimixer. He
discovered the McDonald's® hamburger stand in California, owned by Dick &
Mac McDonald, was running eight Multimixers at a time, so he packed up and
headed west to investigate.
Ray Kroc had never seen so many pRay Kroc opened the Des Plaines, Illinois
restaurant in 1955, and with the first Golden Arches, launched a legendary
brand. He saw the value of a restaurant system that could be famous for offering
consistently prepared, quality food that tasted the same in every location, every
time. In 1958, McDonald’s sold its 100 millionth burger.
eople served so quickly, and was impressed with the way the limited menu
allowed a focus on quality at every step. Inspired, he pitched the idea of opening
several restaurants to the McDonald brothers, convinced he could sell eight of
his Multimixers to each and every one. When they asked who would open
them, Kroc said, "What about me?"Consistency, quality and success.
By 1965, with 700 restaurants, McDonald’s went
public with the company’s first offering on the
Ray Kroc didn’t do it alone. He believed, “In
business for yourself, but not by yourself.” To
achieve his vision, he chose a unique path – to
persuade franchisees and suppliers to join him in
working for themselves, together with McDonald's.
As a result, in 1967, the first McDonald’s
restaurant outside the U.S. opened its doors in
Richmond, British Columbia.
Today, 2.5 million guests visit our
restaurants across Canada EVERY
DAY. With its Canadian
franchisees, McDonald’s Restaurants
of Canada Limited owns and operates
more than 1,400 restaurants and
employs more than 80,000 Canadians
coast-to-coast. Approximately 80% of
McDonald’s Canadian restaurants are
McDonalds has a winning "taste" formula. They also
have consistency so that no matter which one you go
to they will all taste the same. You can start
drooling as soon as you enter the driveway and you
know exactly how it will taste!
They also have a better variety than ever. An
assortment of sodas, ice cream, shakes. Then french
fries, different burgers and you can shape your meal
with any items you want.
Mcdonalds` food contains addiction that leads you to
wanting more and more. They also have this drug in
their fries and burgers that make you very thirsty
and so as a result you end up buying some sort of
drink. And after that drink you will be hungry again
We'd like to think that our food is
addictive because it's so delicious. Not to
mention we offer quality and value that
over 2.5 million Canadians enjoy every
day. What can we say? McDonald's
Canada customers have great taste!
Is McDonalds aimed for children?
McDonalds is aiming for Children!
Haven`t you realized! All of the McDonalds commercials
include children and the happy meals always look very
mouth watering. They have many toys that lure the children
there. McDonalds wants children to whimper and beg for
the food. McDonalds thinks that the parents cannot say no
so that they will earn more money for the parents will
purchase for the food. Many of the restaurants have play
places that welcome children to come play. Some children
might eat first then find the play place and then stay longer
for play time and then get hungry and eat more. However
some parents have realised that McDonalds is unhealthy
and are trying to keep their children away from it.
Next is a story about a
dad that went to jail
because he restricted his
son from McDonalds!!!!
The trouble began last week, the Post explained Thursday, when
Schorr was scheduled to take his son to their usual neighborhood
restaurant for their weekly Tuesday-night visit. But that night the
child dug in his heels about wanting to go to McDonald's instead.
Schorr, who felt the boy had been eating too much junk food
lately, refused, saying he could eat anywhere else but the fast-food
joint — or have no dinner at all.
"The child, stubborn as a mule, chose the 'no dinner' option,"
Schorr says in the suit, according to the Post. "It was just a standoff.
I’m kicking myself mightily. I wish I had taken him to
McDonald's, but you get nervous about rewarding bad behavior. I
was concerned. I think it was a 1950s equivalent of sending your
child to bed without dinner. That's maybe the worst thing you can
say about it."
When the boy went home hungry to mom Bari Yunis Schorr, a
vice president at Rue La La, he reported the incident and went
to McDonald’s with her. Then she contacted the
psychiatrist, Marilyn Schiller, setting the forensic investigation
in motion. Schiller, according to the Associated Press, told a
judge the incident "raises concerns about the viability" of the
father's weekend visits with his son and suggested they be
limited or eliminated entirely.
Now David Schorr wants Schiller to return the required $2,750
he paid for her input on the case. Meanwhile, the custody trial
will resume in December.

• You’ll going to take a massive content of fat, calories
and salt by eating food like burgers and fries. Burgers
in McDonalds contain saturated fat which is very
harmful to eat often for it is red meat. French fries
are cooked by frying into litres of oil; it absorbs too
much oil while deep frying, and again another fat
intake. McDonalds’ food has lots of preservatives to
maintain its texture and size. Over sizing seems to be
very practical for those who are having a tight
budget, for they are discounting the price of the food
if you’ll going to double the size; which is another
massive fat intake.
Even vegetable salads consider unhealthy because
of its fatty dressing added on top. Eating in
McDonalds isn’t really bad, but if you do it often, it
may cause you some diseases such as diabetes and
heart disease and it can even lead you to obesity.
The only great thing in fast food is you can save
time. It is more pleasurable for busy individuals like
students and workers. The more time you save for
work and school by eating in a fast food restaurant
like McDonalds, the greater reduction to your
average life span.
