“It’s not about the burgers and fries anymore. It’s about changing and enriching people’s lives.” – Stephanie Oliver-Greene
Stephanie Oliver-Green is a second-generation franchisee whose father bought his first restaurant in Chicago in 1979. She shared some unforgettable stories about how she has used her position as a business woman and employer to help individuals who were down on their luck. “Mama,” as she has come to be known, demonstrates in action the family feeling that so many people talk about when they recall their experiences. As disciplined as one has to be to work, manage, or own a McDonald’s restaurant, Stephanie has taken risks and, in doing so, changed lives.
