McDonalds is a company who serve hamburger all around the world. It begun when in 1954, Ray Kroc decide to invest all his money to become the lone distributor of the ‘’Multimixer’’. It comes to his ears that a small restaurant in California use 8 of his multimixer at the same time. He then went to the restaurant to investigate. The rapidity of the service and the principle of a production chain impress him. He decides to do business with the two owner of the restaurant, the McDonalds Brothers. He opened the first McDonalds restaurant in 1955 in Des Plaines, Illinois. Ray Kroc bought the name and became the lone owner of the company. Ten years after, the company counted 700 restaurants in the United States. ‘’ We offer opportunity, nurture talent, develop leaders and reward achievement. We believe that a diverse, well-trained team working together in a highly engaging, respectful environment is essential to our continued success. ‘’ This is the vision of McDonald in regard of their employee. McDonald always treated their employee with respect and the customers as well.
Why this company is considered ethical? As seen in the previous paragraph, this company treated with respect their customers and their employees. But wait, there’s more. McDonald wanted to give more to the community which help it to grow to become the multinational it is today. They Open the ‘’Ronald McDonalds house charities’’ to help the sick children and their parents around the world. Many people have criticized McDonalds because they didn’t serve healthy food. It is true, but McDonalds only answered to the demand that we asked. They also tried to make healthy food. They now got tasty salads and healthy food on brown bread. But from a former manager of McDonalds, I can assure you that even with healthy choice; the customers still take the junk food. McDonald’s only wanted to give back our investment in the community by helping sick children around the country. This is why McDonalds is an ethical business. They give us what we want, they respect their employees and the customers and they are helping sick children around the world.
