Perfect for fans of The Founder, this is the real-life story of the world’s premier entrepreneurial success.

The growth of McDonald’s worldwide continues to astonish. In tough financial times, McDonald’s proved that ingenuity, trial and error, and gut instinct were the keys to building a service business the entire world has come to admire.

McDonald’s has been a trendsetter in advertising, focusing on different demographics as well as the physically disabled. McDonald’s created McJobs, a program that employs both mentally challenged adults and senior citizens. And because its franchisees have their fingers on the pulse of the marketplace, McDonald’s has evolved successfully with the health food revolution, launching dozens of new products and moving toward environmentally safe packaging and recyclable goods.

Inspiring, informative, and filled with behind-the-scenes stories, this remarkable saga offers an irresistible look inside a great American business success.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Read Really enjoyed the history of the book and the deep detail it went into. I went in knowing it was not a flashy book about what is happening with the company now, so I was very entertained and found the information very interesting. I would recommend this book to anyone looking at the business side of McDonald's.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Informative and Entertaining John F. Love's "McDonald's: Behind the Arches" is an entertaining read that offers plenty of information and insights for readers seeking to learn how McDonald's came to be. With a variety of insider sources, Love presents the company within the historical context of franchise-companies' growth within the United States. For those interested in learning about the particulars behind McDonald's business principles and practices, Love delves deep into the company's history. He presents biographical information on the main architects of its structure, and elaborates on their roles within. Be advised that this text was published in 1995, so it is not the most up-to-date text on the company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from McDonald's Behind the Arches What an excellent book! This will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about McDonald's and much more! As an employee and customer of McDoanld's this book has furthered my knowledge of the company itself and happenings threefold. Mr. Love does an excellent job at showing the reader the concepts that transformed Ray Kroc's McDonald's from a single dream to the reality of the greatest fastfood empire of all time.
