Recommended Movie – “The Founder”

Shari and I watched this movie last night, and we highly recommend it. 

It tells the true story of how Ray Kroc, a salesman from Illinois, met Mac and Dick McDonald, who were running a burger operation in 1950s Southern California. Kroc was impressed by the brothers’ speedy system of making the food and saw franchise potential. He maneuvered himself into a position to be able to pull the company from the brothers and create a billion-dollar empire.

 We were particularly impressed with the McDonald brothers’ story of how they put together the first McDonald’s restaurant.   Very interesting.

I give this movie 5 out of 5 stars.
