McDonald’s was founded in 1948 by Dick and Mac McDonald. The hamburger stand was located in San Bernardino, California. In 1955, Ray Kroc opened the first franchise in Des Plaines, Illinois. The building with its distinctive golden arches, which would become the logo for McDonald’s, was designed by architect Stanley Meston. By 1965, there were over 700 McDonald’s restaurants throughout the United States. The first McDonald’s outside of the United States opened in Richmond, British Colombia in 1967.
