McDonald's And Their True Purpose

McDonald's And Their True Purpose

What Is McDonald's Actual Purpose?

There is not one person in this world that has never heard of McDonald's, McDonald's is the world's largest chain of fast food restaurant in the world. McDonald's serves around 68 million customers on a daily in 119 countries across 36,538 outlets which is pretty impressive to me because it is a lot more than most fast food restaurants.

With the slogan “I'm lovin’ it,” McDonald's was created by two brothers named Richard and Maurice McDonald. In 1940 starting out as a barbecue restaurant they later on found their full potential in 1948 as a hamburger restaurant. Which is now the world's second largest private employer with nearly 1.9 million employees and 1.5 million of them whom work for the franchises.

I think everyone has always wondered, well I mean I have always wondered what McDonald's was all about and what they stood for; are they only about serving people fatty foods and soda or what is their main purpose? Later on after researching I soon realized they are about three main things which are, good food, good people,and good neighbors.

Starting with good food meaning great taste, modern choices, and real ingredients. Every day they try to add more fruit and vegetables to their menu. And their new goal is to reduce salt, sugar, saturated fat and calories across their menu throughout every McDonald's.

What do they mean when they say good people? I believe the good people are their employees; they foster a work environment that values the unique contributions of all. Their employees are the face of their brand as is Ronald McDonald. They try to make each day positive in the lives of many of their employees by offering the opportunity through training and education. They offer this to their employees rather they choose a long career path at McDonald's or elsewhere.

Lastly, the reason why they do it all: good neighbor which is my absolute favorite out of all three. They keep families with sick children together through the Ronald McDonald House Charities while providing the care and resources they need. They allow families to face the weight of their child's illness together because families are stronger when they are together.

At the Ronald McDonald House, families can enjoy home cooked meals, private bedrooms, playrooms for their children, laundry room, their own bathrooms, etc. And this reason right here is the reason why McDonald's and their branding will stay successful. Their main focus is the children with everything they do and that will always be nothing less than appreciated all around the world.

4 Breakfast Spots Near The University of Kentucky That Will Actually Get You Out Of Bed In The Morning

These places will satisfy all of your breakfast cravings.


If you're a breakfast foodie like I am, you know that is an absolute priority to find the most popular breakfast spots despite the city you may be in. You don't want to visit the touristy and basic restaurants that everyone else goes to, but instead, you are determined to uncover the locations that are the best of the best. Most foodies will go to great lengths to discover these places. As a University of Kentucky student and major foodie, I have searched all over Lexington to find my favorite places to visit on Saturday and Sunday mornings. This took my entire first semester and many trips to the ATM, but today, I am now blessed to say that I am a regular at all 4 of these incredible breakfast spots.

1. The Great Bagel

The Great Bagel is one of my all-time favorite restaurants to visit on Sunday mornings. The restaurant offers a variety of bagel sandwiches and freshly squeezed orange juice, and it makes for the perfect early morning start to a day filled with homework or relaxation.

2. Chocolate Holler

Though not a true restaurant, Chocolate Holler is one of the most popular coffee shops near the University of Kentucky. Because it is only a 3-minute drive from campus, Chocolate Holler is always buzzing with UK students who come to socialize or study. The coffee shop is most well known for its chocolaty drinks and the music is great there, too!

3. Stir Krazy

Stir Krazy is a local smoothie bar down the street that serves protein shakes, smoothies, and tea. Though It only consists of these three beverages, the shakes at Stir Krazy are enough to fill you up for breakfast or lunch. Each shake or smoothies range from 200 to 250 calories and serves as the perfect energizer before a workout or a filling recovery drink after a workout.

4. La Madeleine

La Madeleine is a French breakfast and lunch cafe conveniently located on campus (and only a 30-second walk from my dorm). Their breakfast is served all day long and their croissants are to die for. I highly recommend building your own omelet for the most fulfilling experience. Not to mention, their iced caramel macchiatos are a great refresher on the side.

No matter which city, state, or country I am currently in, I make it my mission to eat as a local would. In Lexington, Kentucky, these four breakfast spots are guaranteed provide you with a plethora of different types of food to get you through even the worst cases of morning hunger. Though these places are my current favorites, I am now looking forward to containing the search for more breakfast restaurants, cafes, and juice bars throughout my next four years in this city.
