December 12, 1948

The first McDonalds

It took eleven years for Dick and Mac McDonald to go from "The Airdrome" in 1937, to "McDonald's Bar-B-Q" in 1940, and, finally to "McDonald's." On December 12, 1948, the first McDonald's opened in San Bernardino, California, serving only their most profitable menu items--hamburgers, cheeseburgers, french fries, shakes, soft drinks, and apple pie.
