McDonald’s® HACER® National Scholarship in USA: $25,000 per year paid over four year

In 1917, 15-year-old Ray Kroc lied about his age to join the Red Cross as an ambulance driver, but the war ended before he completed his training. He then worked as a pianist, paper cup salesman and Multimixer salesman. In 1954, he visited a restaurant in San Bernardino, California, which purchased several Multimixers. There, he found a small but successful restaurant run by brothers Dick and Mac McDonald, and was shocked by the effectiveness of their operations. The McDonald’s brothers combined a limited menu, focusing on only a few items (burgers, fries and drinks), allowing them to focus on quality and fast service. 

They are looking for a new franchise agent and Kroc sees an opportunity. In 1955, he founded McDonald's System, the predecessor to McDonald's, and bought exclusive rights to the McDonald's name and operating system six years later. By 1958, McDonald's had sold its 100 millionth hamburger.
