Risk taker. Rule breaker. Game changer.
The true story of how Ray Kroc, a salesman from Illinois, met Mac and Dick McDonald, who were running a burger operation in 1950s Southern California.

He maneuvered himself into a position to be able to pull the company from the brothers and create a billion-dollar empire.
