Chain Restaurants: How They Got Their Starts


Original Location: Des Plaines, Ill.

Fun Facts: Ray Kroc opened the first McDonald's franchise in 1955. Today it's no longer a functioning restaurant, the Des Plaines building is now a museum. But don't despair -- there are still more than 31,000 other McD's restaurants serving 52 million people in more than 100 countries.
