The Inland Empire boasts the startup of some of fast food’s largest entities, including Taco Bell, Pollo Loco, and most notably, McDonalds. San Bernardino, home of the very first golden arched establishment and now-museum, will celebrate the big 70 and invites the local community to join.
On Wednesday December 12th, 2018 the Historic Site of the Original McDonald’s Unofficial Museum will be celebrating the 70-year anniversary of the McDonald’s Hamburgers that opened December 12th, 1948.
In 1961 Ray Kroc purchased the franchising rights from the McDonald brothers for 2.7 million dollars. In 1998 the original property of The McDonald’s was purchased by restaurateur Albert Okura, founder of the Juan Pollo Restaurants. The property currently serves as Juan Pollo’s office headquarters and as an “unofficial” museum dedicated to the McDonald’s brothers’ legacy.
Join the fun! Cake will be served at noon. A raffle will be held at 2 pm for the prize of a McDonald’s uniform shirt used in the movie The Founder, which starred Michael Keaton as Ray Kroc. There will also be souvenir postcards given away. The public is invited to come and share their memories of McDonald’s at this event.
The museum is located at 1398 N. E Street San Bernardino, California and is open from 9 am to 5 pm daily.
