“Seeing McDonald’s on the resumes of applicants would be a huge plus.” – Drew Nieporent
Most of the people whose stories are collected here initially worked at McDonald’s with no agenda other than to earn an honest dollar for an honest day’s work. Drew Nieporent had a very specific agenda. He was interested in the restaurant business at a young age and wanted to see how a McDonald’s worked. He went on to become a restaurant impresario, founding a group of three dozen high-end restaurants around the world, including New York’s Tribeca Grill, which he co-owns with actor Robert De Niro.
