About This Product

"The Founder" tells the true story of Ray Kroc (played by Michael Keaton), a struggling milkshake machine salesman who stumbles upon a small but innovative fast food restaurant in San Bernardino, California, called McDonald's. Impressed by the efficiency and popularity of the restaurant's operation, Kroc sees the potential for massive success.

Ray Kroc convinces the McDonald brothers, Dick (played by Nick Offerman) and Mac (played by John Carroll Lynch), to allow him to franchise their restaurant concept. Initially, Kroc faces challenges in expanding the business due to his lack of capital and the brothers' insistence on maintaining strict quality control. To overcome these obstacles, Kroc takes on a driven and ambitious approach. He convinces investors and recruits franchisees, gradually building a McDonald's empire.

However, as the business grows, conflicts arise between Kroc and the McDonald brothers over the direction and control of the company. Driven by his desire for success and financial gain, Kroc eventually seizes control of the company from the McDonald brothers and establishes himself as the founder of the McDonald's corporation. The movie depicts the rise of McDonald's as a global fast-food phenomenon and explores the ethical dilemmas and personal sacrifices made by Ray Kroc in pursuit of his ambitions.

"The Founder" offers insight into the entrepreneurial spirit, corporate maneuvering, and the complex dynamics behind one of the most iconic and successful fast-food chains in the world.
