Our colleagues at Franchise Chatter shared this infographic with us, and we were fascinated to see just how McDonald's became the epitome of fast food, popularized the idea of restaurant franchises, and continues to be one of the most successful businesses of all time. 

Read on to learn how McDonald's became a pioneer in the following areas.

Read on for an extensive and insightful history of McDonald's!
