Ray Kroc's About

[]

Raymond Albert Kroc, better known as Ray Kroc, was an American businessman who revolutionized the fast food market by establishing McDonald's as the world's largest fast food franchise. Kroc, who was once dubbed the "service sector's Henry Ford" by Harvard Business School, had a humble beginning. At the age of 51, he met the McDonald brothers, who managed a modest but popular fast food establishment in California, and began selling various goods such as paper cups and milkshake mixers. Following that, he bought a small-scale McDonald's Corporation franchise and turned it into one of the world's most successful fast food companies. At the age of 59, Ray Croc purchased the company. He also used standardization to ensure that McDonald's cuisine tastes the same in all of their locations. With his newly devised operational and delivery system, Kroc transformed the American restaurant sector. The network had 7,500 locations throughout the world at the time of his death, with gross sales of $8 billion.
