I’m very optimistic about the future, because… Okay, with Audra McDonald, even just on Broadway, they cast her in shows that are usually not played by African-American women, so she’s very inspiring to me just because of that, you know what I mean?
Shanice Williams
I once ate McDonald’s three times in one day.
Christina Ricci
I believe that if we are going to create jobs in this country, then let’s create jobs that will absolutely put the working-class people at work to the point where they have one job. They don’t have to work three because they have to work Wendy’s, McDonald’s, and Walmart to survive.
Richard Ojeda
I need it to survive. But most specifically, McDonalds Big Mac’s and McDoubles (with no pickles).
Armie Hammer
Well, I wasn’t just kind of standing in a queue at McDonald’s and someone sat down and said, ‘You’re the director of a $100 million Hollywood movie.’ I’ve been working in commercials for ten years.
Rupert Sanders
I can pretty much live without fast food. I haven’t eaten McDonald’s in so long, but it’s okay.
Ed Westwick
I don’t know about everyone else, but I felt like the day I turned 40, I could no longer read the dinner menu without glasses, my knees started to betray me, and I can gain 10 pounds just by driving past a McDonalds!
Cynthia Bailey
I learned from McDonald’s that we can do great things from a marketing and advertising perspective, but if the experience at the restaurant isn’t superior, it might not matter.
Mary Dillon
I’ve been married for 23 years to Jeff McDonald from Redd Kross.
Charlotte Caffey
I love McDonald’s now and again – not every day.

Alexander Ovechkin
There’s great food everywhere, and even McDonald’s uses nice wood now.
Spike Jonze
I’ve always had jobs with hierarchies – wherever I worked, like McDonald’s, or cleaning toilets. It’s always been hard.
Yung Lean
I was the all-American face. You name it, honey – American Dairy Milk, Metropolitan Life insurance, McDonald’s, Burger King. The Face That Didn’t Matter – that’s what I called my face.
Debra Winger
For ‘Regulate,’ I was at home, and I came up with it. I was listening to Michael McDonald’s ‘I Keep Forgettin’.’ It was a record that I always loved, from being a kid and my parents playing it when they had their company of friends over. It was a record that just stuck in my head, and it just felt good.
Warren G
McDonalds. Apple. Starbucks. They were all small businesses, owned by entrepreneurs and people with vision.
Michael Gerber
I worked flipping cheeseburgers and Big Mac’s at McDonald’s, purchased a microphone, and cleared all the stuff out of my basement and started making music.
Yung Lean
The biggest threat to McDonald’s lies within – and that is us as a company becoming complacent. There are a lot of companies that get fat, dumb and happy and take their eye off the ball and forget about serving customers.
Charlie Bell
I do know that no matter what, I know within myself that if I have to work at McDonald’s, I will do what it takes to provide for my kids, period.
Kate Gosselin
In my business, you could be making money one day, and the next day you could be serving up burgers at McDonald’s. So if you want to be able to stay on top of your game, you’ve got to keep with it.
Michael Anthony
I enjoyed working at McDonald’s.
Shania Twain
The parents that we speak to, and the parents that are our customers, are very comfortable with the way that McDonald’s fits into their lives.
Steve Easterbrook
There’s a McDonald’s in the Louvre.
Lee Radziwill
We felt a responsibility to the McDonald brothers and to Ray Kroc to be as factual as possible. We didn’t have a responsibility to make anyone look good or anybody look bad, just to try our best to be honest.
John Lee Hancock
There’s two tiers of science fiction: the McDonalds sci-fi like Star Trek, where they have an adventure and solve it before the last commercial, and there are books that once you’ve read, you never look at the world the same way again.
David Gerrold
To actually be independent financially was a big luxury. Modelling gave me an independence, it gave me responsibility. I didn’t have to work at McDonald’s. I could save up and choose the training that I wanted to do.
Stacy Martin
Fighting Michael McDonald was awesome.
Urijah Faber
Me and my mate used to go across the park, jump on the Met line to get the Tube into Harrow. There was a sports shop we always used to go into, and there was a McDonald’s. We used to go off with three or four quid in our pocket. That would cover our train fare, mooching around Harrow, and going to McDonald’s.
Steve Easterbrook
I’m a McDonald’s girl – several times a week. Usually the two-cheeseburger combo meal.
Nikki Cox
Even when I speak English to my parents, I’ll say an English word differently to my Chinese parents and friends than I do to my English-speaking friends – you know, I’ll pronounce ‘McDonald’s’ differently, because it feels right, and that’s what I’m used to.
Jenny Zhang
Think about it. If it’s taking pictures, it’s not a cellphone. If it has a McDonald’s app to tell you where McDonald’s is based on your GPS location, that’s not a cellphone. If you can get Wikipedia or go to Google, that’s not a cellphone.
Newt Gingrich
It would be arrogant of us for me to say everything at McDonald’s is perfect.
Charlie Bell
We all know that Ray Kroc founded the McDonald’s franchise back in the 1950s, and it then became the most successful business enterprise in history.
Michael Gerber
Ya know, I always admired Ray Kroc, the man who invented McDonald’s. Ray had a vision of the most commonplace thing – a hamburger and fries to go – but to him it was just the greatest thing ever, and he was going to make it the greatest thing ever for everybody else, and he did.
David Lee Roth
My first job was a McDonald’s commercial. It made me want to wake up at 4 A.M. to do something I loved. I haven’t been the same since.
Nadine Velazquez
I always admired Ray Kroc, the man who invented McDonald’s. Ray had a vision of the most commonplace thing – a hamburger and fries to go – but to him it was just the greatest thing ever, and he was going to make it the greatest thing ever for everybody else, and he did.
David Lee Roth
I hate getting a McDonald’s. I’m not a McDonald’s person: you just feel crap afterwards.
George Ezra
Sometimes I wonder why I’m not working at McDonald’s and how come I have the life I have. I don’t know. But I’m happy that I have these choices. That’s kinda sappy, huh? But whatever, acting beats pumping gas.
Rachel True
My first job was, like, McDonald’s.
Swae Lee
You get paid more at McDonald’s than you do under the existing minimum wage.
Norm Coleman
Anything I do in life, I always want to work hard, play hard and so I’m still drinking my wine, I’m still eating my McDonald’s on Sundays, but I am working hard through the week.
Kaitlyn Bristowe
Ross McDonald had a greater influence on me than any other writer. His style of writing, the repeated theme of the past coming out to grab somebody, that’s very attractive to me as a reader and, now, as a writer.
Michael Connelly
Ronald has had bicycle safety and safety in the home. Yes, Ronald is McDonald’s, second most recognised figure after Santa Claus, and there’s an element of obviously benefiting your business.
Jim Cantalupo
My acting career began at age three and my parents got me into it. I was in a McDonald’s commercial.
Corey Feldman
The great thing about McDonald’s is that they have a lot of different things on the menu. I love their salads.
Beyonce Knowles
I could put in garage doors or work in McDonald’s but that’s it. So I figured I might as well play the Nashville game.
Hank Williams III
I’m pretty sure that I’ve never confessed in an interview my weakness for McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish. The cheese is fake. Who knows what that ‘fish’ really is. It is gross. It is amazing.
Laura van den Berg
Unfortunately, diet is 75 or 80 percent of trying to get in shape, so you do have to try to cut the carbs. The diet’s a huge part! I’m from Kansas, so I love ranch dressing and McDonald’s. When I’m working, I have to stay away from all that!
Colton Haynes
It’s not like I’m out eating McDonald’s and Del Taco every night. I eat good: my mom fixes dinner every single night – baked chicken, fish – she cooks a great meal every single night.
Bryce Harper
People want to know how we do it as moms. I want to inspire moms to get back in the kitchen. I want to show moms that not only is it great to have your kids eat healthy foods as opposed to McDonald’s, but it’s great to bring the family back together.
Tia Mowry
I had braids before. They were real long, and they were black, but my mom made me cut them for the McDonald’s job. Then, when I got the job, everybody had long braids and colored hair.
Lil Yachty
I’d rather eat a cow-pat on a bun than a bloody McDonalds.
Alex Kapranos
If I lost my job, I’d get a job at McDonald’s.
Robert Kiyosaki
Clinton used to like to get out of the White House a lot. He would take night trips to McDonald’s, and stuff like that. I think he wanted to get out of the house.
Paul Thomas Anderson
I definitely have an affection for detective fiction, and when I first read Dashiell Hammett’s ‘The Maltese Falcon,’ that book and its author made an enormous impression on me as a reader and a writer, and led me to other hard-boiled American writers like Raymond Chandler and Ross McDonald, among many.
I had a really tragic cut at the beginning of Season 2 of ‘Ally McBeal.’ Someone convinced me that it would be good to layer my hair. I basically looked like Ronald McDonald.
Jane Krakowski
McDonald’s says it’s phasing out pig gestation crates. When I heard that news, I almost started crying.
Jane Velez-Mitchell
Now, McDonald’s is a very good indicator of the global economy. If McDonald’s doesn’t increase its sales, it tells you that the monetary policies have largely failed in the sense that prices are going up more than disposable income, and so people have less purchasing power.
Marc Faber
McDonald’s is good for me.
Amanda Latona
The Fiesta Tour McDonald’s exhibit is a one-of-a-kind compilation of items and great moments in Latin music history. Every item has a unique story, including the outfit which I wore during the 2008 Premios Juventud awards.
I especially don’t want men coming up to me and asking if sexism still exists. It’s like, I’m seriously gonna barf a McDonald’s salad on the next person to do that.
Kathleen Hanna
McDonald’s is in a unique position. They can decide they don’t want meat with hormones in it, and that will be the end of hormones in meat. I actually think exerting pressure on McDonald’s is probably just as important as on the Department of Agriculture.
Michael Pollan
There are some people who are Burger King people, and there are some people who are McDonald’s people.
Anderson Cooper
I don’t go to McDonald’s anymore. After I saw Super Size Me… no way!
Scarlett Johansson
When you’re a corporation, you’re going to stick with what works. That’s why every McDonald’s is the same.
Certain kinds of people will always have an issue with my music. But that’s fine; it’s OK. I don’t want to be the McDonald’s of music. I don’t want to not turn anyone off. If you were everybody’s cup of tea, you’d probably be boring.
Kacey Musgraves
I’ve traveled to the most glamorous places in the world, the biggest capitals of culture, and I’ve traveled to the biggest fuddy-duddy, slum life nowheresvilles… so I’ve seen a ton of stuff. I’ve been physically attacked at a McDonald’s in Perth, Australia, in full drag.
Violet Chachki
If you can’t find the next McDonald’s, I’ll find the next McDonald’s. But it’s vital to be with people who with looking for ’em, because they do exist. They are created.
Jim Cramer
Because we only feed in the United States less than 1 per cent of the meals, most of them are eaten elsewhere. Most meals are eaten at home. So to make McDonald’s the target is not going to solve the problem.
Jim Cantalupo
When it came to healthy eating, my parents did their best to set me on the right path. At school, my friends ate McDonalds at lunchtime, but I had a packed lunch that my mother made for me. I hated it at the time, but looking back, I’m glad.
Daniel Negreanu
We’re all moving at such a high rate that we have to grab the frozen dinners and the McDonald’s. We can’t make it a way of life – we have to get back to real, simple, clean good foods. It will save our lives on so many levels; not just spina bifida, but obesity, diabetes, everything. Food is our medicine.
Nicole Ari Parker
Food should be cheap, and labor should be cheap, and everything should be the same no matter where you go; whether it’s a McDonald’s in Germany or one in California, it should be the same. And this message is destroying cultures around the world. Needless to say, agriculture goes with it.
Alice Waters
When I was in high school, I wanted to be so thick that I’d eat all the pizza and all the McDonald’s and everything.
Winnie Harlow
I left Goldman Sachs. I was thinking about going to another Wall Street place. I didn’t want to do that. That was crazy. After you work on Wall Street, it’s a choice: would you rather work at McDonald’s or on the sell side? I would choose McDonald’s over the sell side.
David Tepper
There is a common British delusion that we ‘understand’ America. We don’t. Watching ‘Friends’ listening to Bruce Springsteen, eating at McDonald’s and visiting Disneyland does not do it.
Gavin Esler
A McDonald’s cheeseburger with no mustard is my guilty pleasure.
Matt Hardy
I went into a McDonald’s yesterday and said, ‘I’d like some fries.’ The girl at the counter said, ‘Would you like some fries with that?’
Jay Leno
I can’t say ‘I’m proud to say’ – because it’s not a choice for many Americans – but I can say I’m fortunate enough to not be raising my kids on McDonald’s.
Laura Dern
How many McDonald’s gift certificates would it take to sway a lot of Americans to pledge to never publicly criticize the U.S, President?
James Bovard
You know what the best thing about morning ski trips are? McDonald’s!
Nick Woodman
Ultimately, the bread and butter of McDonald’s is delivering great service, great quality food, at affordable prices day in and day out.
Steve Easterbrook
At some point, I’ll do more McDonald’s commercials if I have to.
Daveed Diggs
I challenge you, to go to any school and open 50 lunchboxes, and I guarantee you there will be one or two cans of Red Bull, there’ll be cold McDonald’s and jam sandwiches with several cakes.
Jamie Oliver
If audiences are sort of interested in movies that are made like McDonald’s hamburgers, which do have a value in the world, then we have to re-evaluate our entire career.
Lana Wachowski
They know they got the TV ad, they know they got the name recognition, they know that they can do a tie in with McDonald’s or some fast food outlet and the money is just gonna flow in.
Gene Siskel
I eat raw vegetables. But my 30 for 30 documentary better include sit-down interviews with Ronald McDonald, Colonel Sanders and Little Debbie.
Jason Whitlock
It is true that there comes a time when I do literally dream about McDonald’s. I dream of supermarkets and drug stores, potato chips and the Sunday morning paper.
Dian Fossey
When I was a kid, we would get McDonalds on Christmas Eve, and that was a big deal because the closest one to the south side of Chicago was a 35 minute drive away. I remember opening the bag and smelling those fries, and even now when I smell them, it reminds me of Christmas Eve.
Jane Lynch
There is a deliberate effort to undermine food culture to sell us processed food. The family meal is a challenge if you’re General Mills or Kellogg or one of these companies, or McDonald’s, because the family meal is usually one thing shared.
Michael Pollan
It drives people nuts that I take them to McDonald’s all the time.
Kenneth C. Griffin
The McDonald’s icon of the colours and the golden arch, for me, resonates as one of the most iconic images ever.
Jeremy Scott
I can’t just go to McDonald’s after I’m done working out. I’m going to treat my body like it’s the only body I’m ever going to have. I’m going to make sure it’s strong and it’s good. I’m really going to work hard every single day.
Bryce Harper
I didn’t grow up watching TV or going to McDonald’s or listening to mainstream music. Like, the casting agents are looking elsewhere for the cheerleader role.
Summer Phoenix
If I’m honest, the thing I remember the most was the team mascot, Freddie the Falcon. I really remember there was a McDonald’s nearby, and I remember eating a cheeseburger in the playground when the Falcon appeared. I’m not sure my dad appreciates that being my favorite memory of him playing.
Elana Meyers
I grew up in a refinery town in Texas, and we weren’t fancy enough to have a McDonald’s.
John Lee Hancock
McDonald’s is over with. But chips and candy and stuff, it’s going to be hard to get away from that.
Derrick Rose
I go to McDonald’s every day. But I don’t eat much.
Brandy Norwood
Several years ago, I was asked by a songwriter’s association to go to Nashville – I think it involved some kind of award – and be part of the showcase. It was myself and Stevie Winwood and Michael McDonald and then some country people that I didn’t know. The whole community was just so welcoming to me.
Justin Hayward
Even if you flippin’ fries at McDonald’s, if you are excellent, everybody wants to be in your line.
Oprah Winfrey
McDonald’s revolutionized fast food. They introduced a way to eat food without knives, forks or plates. Most fast foods can be eaten while steering the wheel of a car and the restaurants are usually drive through.
Eric Schlosser
My mom worked at McDonald’s, and she decided she wanted to make more money, so she got into the management program at McDonald’s. And that’s how you move up the chain. It’s not by demanding that minimum wage is raised; it’s by actually acquiring the skills. That’s the way that people get ahead in life.
Raul Labrador
I used to sit in front of McDonald’s and ask people for dollars to get me a cheeseburger. It was bad.
McDonald’s is almost 50 years old. For 47 years we had a pretty consistent track record of being able to deliver admirable sales.
Jim Cantalupo
Moving our headquarters to Chicago is another significant step in our journey to build a better McDonald’s. This world-class environment will continue to drive business momentum by getting us even closer to customers, encouraging innovation and ensuring great talent is excited about where they work.
Steve Easterbrook
I can understand why a single parent, working two jobs, would find it easier to stop at McDonald’s with the kids rather than cook something from scratch at home.
Eric Schlosser
We’re allowing technology to take out the non-value-added manual elements of the McDonald’s experience.
Steve Easterbrook
O.K., my family isn’t, like, stupid-wealthy. But I’m coming from a place where if football doesn’t work out, I don’t have to work at McDonald’s.
Josh Rosen
Let me ask you: Who do you prefer, a clown organizing your menu – with all due respect to Mr. McDonald – or a chef? I do believe it’s a very simple answer.
Jose Andres
I like McDonald’s burgers and Happy Meals. And I’ve got a thing for kebabs, too. But I don’t eat too much of that stuff or it makes me feel a bit ill.
Sarah Harding
In corn, I think I’ve found the key to the American food chain. If you look at a fast-food meal, a McDonald’s meal, virtually all the carbon in it – and what we eat is mostly carbon – comes from corn.
Michael Pollan
I trust that McDonald’s can find a way to sell all-natural chicken without raising their prices; we did that at Shake Shack. It is more expensive, and we took a slight margin hit, but we did it. And if we can do it, I know that much bigger companies can.
Danny Meyer
I would love to see McDonald’s pay more money.
Tom Douglas
We have lots of fruit trees and vegetables – we live endlessly on courgettes. I certainly wouldn’t approve of a diet of McDonald’s for my children.
Jade Jagger
It distresses me when I take my seven-year-old nephew out. I cook healthy food, and he wants to go to McDonald’s. He doesn’t even like the food; he just wants the toys, the Happy Meals. I can’t stand to see people walking down the street eating fast food.
Julia Sawalha
I’d been travelling in Romania. It was 1990, just after the revolution and you couldn’t buy anything so we’d been eating basic food. We went to McDonald’s and, I’m ashamed to say, it was wonderful. I hate McDonald’s normally.
Lee Mack
You know how you can be romantic? You can be romantic by going to a beautiful setting, sitting on a park bench, and getting good ole-fashioned golden arches, a.k.a. McDonald’s. That’s probably the best I can do romantically.
Omari Hardwick
We are putting the customer at the center of everything we do and are directing our resources towards those innovations and investments that will strengthen our ability to deliver a better McDonald’s experience over time.
Steve Easterbrook
To me, nothing beats McDonalds and a scary movie at home.
Mikaela Hoover
I need to make money, but I don’t want to be another guy selling his McDonald’s to the pop market.
I remember looking to McDonald’s, and, my God, they have 13,000 restaurants in the United States. Well, we have almost a couple thousand Chipotles. What if Pizzeria Locale is a few thousand, and Shod. All of a sudden, we’re bigger than McDonald’s in the U.S. I mean, that’s not an unreasonable way to think about this.
Steve Ells
I’d done my time in corporate America, from McDonald’s making shakes to Morgan Stanley making deals and, yet, I felt awfully constrained by the uniform – not just my clothes, but how I felt I needed to conform – that a traditional job required me to wear.
Chip Conley
Education seems to be placing increased emphasis on assessment and tracking, which means parents are terrified that if their kid doesn’t exceed their expected learning level at six years old, they are immediately put in the class that ends up working at McDonald’s.
Romesh Ranganathan
McDonald’s, Barbie – they’re all icons, recognizable from London to Timbuktu.
Jeremy Scott
I’ve never been a Burger King person. I’m a total McDonald’s person.
Anderson Cooper
For an adult, eating alone at McDonald’s is admitting a kind of defeat.
Jonathan Carroll
When you expand a business as fast as McDonald’s did, part of the strength you have is the process and the efficiency.
Steve Easterbrook
Really, the only way to face the biggest problems we have is for the government to change the way they subsidize food. The way we subsidize food makes it cheaper to go to McDonald’s and get a hamburger than a salad, and that’s insane.
Ruth Reichl
I’ll be the first one to tell you that I’m fat out of season. I love McDonald’s, and I love Taco Bell. But, whenever it comes fight time, I’m always ready.
Johny Hendricks
Grand Slam losses are hard. I treat myself after losses though, I usually go to McDonald’s and I have a hamburger and you know, something. Because you know, you just need to be nice to yourself sometimes after the loss.
Venus Williams
A day does not go by when I am not in a line at a store or at a McDonald’s, and someone will touch my hand, and they will say, ‘Thank you.’
Joe Garcia
Nirvana, to a value investor, is paying a cheap price for a company that is growing in value every year at a nice rate – this largely explains why today we own stocks like Berkshire Hathaway, McDonald’s, Wal-Mart, Microsoft, Costco and Anheuser-Busch.
Whitney Tilson
I was a math whiz who stunk at English, so of course I wanted to be a writer more than anything in the world. I performed impromptu plays for my grandmother’s sewing circle but forced my little sister to ask for ketchup at McDonald’s.
Alethea Kontis
Yes, the Masters is too stylish to be an American icon. It’s as out of character for Uncle Sam as a McDonald’s is for France.
Frank Deford
If you do a full-on workout and then eat McDonald’s or Wendy’s, you’re defeating the purpose. If you put good things into your body while working out, you’ll see results.
Matt Kemp
Scandal is like McDonald’s. It’s cheap and it’s easily accessible to the masses, and when you’re going to McDonald’s, you know that you can get a salad, but do you want a salad? No. You want a Big Mac and French fries with an apple pie and a sundae.
Perez Hilton
I remember how, when I lived in Paris, there was a McDonald’s, and I’d always see Americans eating there and think, ‘Why do they come all the way to Paris and eat at McDonald’s?’
Diedrich Bader
It’s possible to go to the market, buy good ingredients, and make yourself a healthy meal for less than it costs to buy a value meal at McDonald’s.
Eric Schlosser
When you have the demand, you can change the government policies that create McDonald’s and junk food.
Kimbal Musk
McDonald’s cannot flourish without McDonnell Douglas, the designer of the F-15.
Thomas Friedman
The reach of Coke and McDonald’s is undeniable, and I’m thrilled these iconic brands are joining forces to inspire local communities through messages of peace and motivation in unique ways. It’s an added bonus that they are using the lyrics to ‘Rise Up’ as a part of those messages.
Andra Day
Playtime and toys are good for kids, or they wouldn’t buy them. McDonald’s can provide that experience. And having dinner with the family is good for kids.
Jim Cantalupo
