Every success story has one thing in common—a dream and some pretty motivated people to make their ultimate dream come true. We now know McDonald's as one of the biggest entities in the world—the largest restaurant chain in the world by revenue, but before the Golden Arches was all of that (and more), it was a simple barbecue drive thru ran by two young men who had no idea exactly what that little barbecue drive thru would eventually transform into. If you haven't already heard, McDonald's has a new “As Featured In” meal being offered at the moment, alongside a new partnership with renowned London streetwear brand PALACE, which has produced some neat merchandise to celebrate.
Similar to what we did with Pepsi earlier this year, we figured now would be a good time to dive in the history of McDonalds and how the Golden Arches became the behemoth it is today. Look, listen, and learn people—because the story is an interesting one.
