We have first days in common: Ben & Marigold. A U.S. citizen and a Kindergartener with more in common than we think. • Ben, 39 I became an American citizen today. So, I thought I’d do the most American thing I could think of, which is have a McDonald’s Quarter Pounder. I remember when McDonald’s first came to my hometown in England. An American fast food chain coming to a small English town was a huge deal. Before, you’d just eat at pubs or cafes, there was no fast food, so when we finally got a McDonald’s it was pretty magical. • Marigold, 5 (left) It was my first day of kindergarten today. But my dad and I always come to McDonald's on Tuesdays because my mom works late. My favorite thing is the ketchup dispenser. My dad always gets his own and I like getting my own. I'm not very good at it, but I practice every time I come in and I'm getting better and better at it. We have show-and-tell next week and I'm going to bring in my blue bunny.
We have community in common: George & Louise. A proud father and a loving sister with more in common than we think. • George, 84 All of my friends get together at McDonald’s. Every morning this is where we meet for coffee. We’re all retired now, so we have no other place to go. They have these cafes back in Italy and Greece, where all of the old people go and have coffee and spend half their day talking politics, business, and whatever else—that's what this place is to us. It's our cafe. I've met some really great friends here, they're the reason I keep coming back. • Louise, 64 I’m here every day during the week with my friends. There’s a group of six or seven of us that always get together. We talk about what’s going on in the world, our lives, the past. Some of them are much older than me, but I’ve met some of my best friends here. My favorite memory was when I threw a surprise party for one of the women in our group. She had no idea. We all got here early and when she walked in, she was so surprised. That was a special moment for me.
We have acts of kindness in common: Ontaria & Greg. A model and a travel manager with more in common than we think. • Ontaria, 21 There’s one moment I’ll never forget. In middle school, my friend came to McDonald’s with me and out of the blue, she bought my whole meal. She paid for my McChicken and a vanilla cone. I don’t know why it’s stuck with me for so long, but I still think about it today. It was amazing. For being so young, it was so thoughtful and kind. I'll always remember that. • Greg, 57 (left) One of my most profound McDonald’s experiences was when I was living in LA. I walked into a McDonald's and noticed a homeless person outside. I didn't have a lot of money myself, but I ended up buying him a meal. He burst out crying. He hugged me. He was so appreciative. The manager of the store actually saw what I was doing and ended up giving him a gift card. Because I gave back, he gave back. I thought that was really cool.
We have after-school rituals in common: Christina, Jamel & Imani. A special education therapist, a bus driver, and a proud father with more in common than we think. • Christina, 40 (right) My son, Andreas, started Pre-K today, so we're starting the tradition of coming to McDonald’s on his first day of school. Growing up, I’d go every Saturday after Greek school with my mom. It’s funny, you don't realize how important McDonald’s is to your family, but for us, it's time we get to spend together. That's how I grew up and I want to instill the same beliefs in him. Some families go to the diner. We’ll always go to McDonald’s. • Jamel, 38 (left) I'm an elementary school bus driver and I usually stop at McDonald's every afternoon before picking up the kids from school. I'll get a big iced tea and sometimes I'll grab something to eat. I remember going to McDonald's all the time when I was little. Ronald McDonald and the Happy Meals are what I remember most. • Imani, 30 (left) My son, Nathaniel, loves fries, so on the days I pick him up from preschool we stop in to get a Happy Meal and I usually get a Big Mac. My dad used to take me to McDonald’s for Happy Meals, maybe once or twice a week. It was pretty routine. I guess it’s something I passed down to my son without even realizing it.
We have movie nights in common: Maria & Jakob. A dancer and a musician with more in common than we think. • Maria, 20 Every Thursday growing up, me, my dad, and my brother would go to McDonald’s because my mom had a workout class. He always let us get whatever we wanted, which for me, was usually chicken nuggets. Then, we’d bring it home and have movie night. My dad collects DVDs, so we’d pick one out from his collection. That’s what I remember most. Thursdays we had McDonald’s and Fridays we had pizza. • Jakob, 29 Growing up, my mom and I would go to McDonald's almost every Friday night when my dad worked late. Friday nights were our movie nights. That was our lazy time together. I was an only child, so that's when my mom and I bonded the most. I'm a musician, so I don't know if I'll ever end up having kids of my own, but McDonald's is a part of everyone's childhood growing up. It's Americana.
