On the big screen: The Founder

Director: John Lee Hancock.

The Founder features the true story of how Ray Kroc, a struggling salesman from Illinois, met Mac and Dick McDonald, who were running a burger operation in 1950 Southern California.

Kroc was impressed by the brothers’ speedy system of making the food and saw franchise potential.
