Making a McDonald’s Docuseries

There From the Beginning

Tracy Johnstone’s family has owned McDonald’s restaurants in Panama City, Florida, since 1962 (Ray Kroc signed their original franchise papers!). When they decided to build a new one, they wanted to show people how they do it. 

Come Behind the Arches

Tracy asked us to film the story of building their new restaurant and show everything from how they choose the décor to how they make their legendary fries. It happens fast, so we created an episode every week to document the progress. 

It’s fascinating how well orchestrated and designed the process is. 

Enjoy Making a McDonald’s!
