Corporate Governance and Leadership Resources
Corporate Governance Overview
McDonald's success is built on a foundation of personal and professional integrity. Hundreds of millions of people around the world trust McDonald's. We earn that trust every day by serving safe food, respecting our customers and employees and delivering outstanding Quality, Service, Cleanliness and Value (QSC&V). We build on this trust by being ethical, truthful and dependable. In short, what Ray Kroc, founder of McDonald's Corporation, said more than 50 years ago was right.
The basis for our entire business is that we are ethical, truthful and dependable. It takes time to build a reputation. We are not promoters. We are business people with a solid, permanent, constructive ethical program that will be in style years from now even more than it is today.
Ray Kroc, 1958
