ray kroc not the founder[edit]

ray kroc was a minority owner when mcdonalds was formed. the first president of the company was harry j sonneborn. he was a lawyer that came up with the whole franchise plan. he came from tastee freeze. if you come up with the business model and own 51 percent of the company, you are the founder. harry sonneborn never wanted publicity, ray kroc did. harry sonneborn ran mcdonalds from its inception until he took it public on the NYSE. when he had all the money he could ever spend, he retired. ray kroc then took over and told everyone how he founded it. and history has been revised. I would say the guy that came up with the idea ,owned controlling interest, was the president, ran it from day one through becoming a publically traded company , was actually the founder. however ,a loudmouth huckster can fool a lot of people.2602:306:838E:8A0:90FD:DBC7:7A8A:8B3 (talk) 14:35, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

McDonalds Growth Rate[edit]

In the third paragraph of the 1990s section it states:

"It took McDonald's 33 years to open its first 10,000 restaurants. The 10,000th unit opened in April 1988. Incredibly, the company reached the 20,000-restaurant mark in only eight more years, in mid-1996. By the end of 1997 the total had surpassed 23,000, and by that time McDonald's was opening 2,000 new restaurants each year, an average of five every day."

However, 5 paragraphs later it goes on to say:

"In response to these difficulties, McDonald's drastically cut back on its U.S. expansion. In contrast to the 1,130 units opened in 1995, only about 400 new McDonald's were built in 1997."

This seems confusing, did they build 400 or 2,000 in 1997? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.45.208.87 (talk) 03:41, 12 February 2017 (UTC)
