How the first ever McDonald's restaurants were recreated for Michael Keaton's new movie
The Weinstein Company
Taking the fast-paced kitchen and golden-arches design the brothers created, Kroc came onto the company as the person in charge of making McDonald's a franchise, and by the early 1960s, he was responsible for expanding the company across the country. He ended up buying the company in 1961 in a shrewd deal for $2.7 million.
To accurately portray the origins of the McDonald's empire, "The Founder" director John Lee Hancock called on the services of two-time Oscar-nominated production designer Michael Corenblith to create the first restaurants for the movie.
Corenblith explains to Business Insider how he pulled it off.
"The Founder" is out in limited release Friday and opens nationwide January 20.
