Apr 11 - This Mother and Her Two Daughters Own Every McDonald’s in the City of Compton

Patricia Williams opened her first McDonald’s franchise store in 1984. Today, Williams and her daughters Nicole Enearu and Kerri Harper-Howie own every McDonald’s in the city of Compton, according to Black Business.

Williams and her daughters, who began working with her in 2000, have successfully opened 13 stores, generated almost $50 million in revenue and have employed over 700 people.

Williams’ journey started over 30 years ago. She and her husband — inspired by family members who already owned McDonald’s franchises — cashed out their retirement plans and set out to open their first store. Their risk reaped major rewards, as the McDonald’s brand grew throughout the 1980s, Williams and her husband were able to purchase a second store before making another bold business move. When her marriage ended, Williams bought her husband’s share in their business, sold their stores and opened five more.

This leap of faith required her to take out a small business loan, attend the required classes, and spend time working in the store all while raising two daughters and working as a rehabilitation therapist.

“It was a pretty intense, a three-year program and I had two young daughters,” Williams said. “But like most things in life, it was the right time and the right place. The opportunity presented itself so I jumped right on in and I haven’t regretted one moment.”

According to Black Business, neither Nicole or Kerri set out to join their mother but ultimately decided to grow their family empire and get involved by opening their own stores.

Nicole attended the McDonald’s franchise training program for owners and later became the first female, African American Chair for the McDonald’s Southern California Regional Leadership Council.

Kerri is a lawyer and started out first by providing legal and HR help to her mother’s franchise locations, but then completed a training program for children of McDonald’s owner operators called the Next Generation program.

Now, they work to uplift their community by making their stores family friendly and accessible. They also offer scholarships to local students, and fund various local and national charities through their non-profit — the Williams/Enearu Organization.

The racists and c00ns are gonna hate this. It's gonna burn their souls. They'll come in here hating on McDonalds now talking about how they're selling unheathy food to their own community. Those are racists who hate to see black people creating generational wealth. Mind you those racists are bums living in trailer park trash with no money at all

Mcdonalds corporate front office has got into trouble by accusations that it "advises" black franchise owners to locate to black areas and require such owners to purchase expensive insurance and security measures.

A group of black franchisers have taken McDonald's to court.


So the whole article come off as a product of a pr campaign

I wouldn't have never posted this article if I would have known this

company’s discriminatory practices has led to a $700,000 sales gap between Black-owned franchises and those owned by white people.

Franchises in low-income neighborhoods cost more to operate, have higher employee turnover and are not as profitable, the lawsuit said.

“By relegating Black owners to the oldest stores in the toughest neighborhoods, McDonald’s ensured that Black franchisees would never achieve the levels of success that White franchisees could expect,” the lawsuit said. “Black franchisees must spend more to operate their stores while White franchisees get to realize the full benefit of their labors.”

More than 50 former Black McDonald’s franchise owners made similar claims to Washington’s in a lawsuit filed against the company in September, saying they were forced to sell around 200 stores in the last decade.

That's fu*ked up
But I understand why in theory it makes sense...
Between all my grandparents children, my family has owned over 100 franchises. Popeyes, dunking donuts, subway, papa John's etc
The amount ppl that have tried to put us out of business is staggering to say the least. The overwhelming majority of those ppl have been white. We have all opened up franchises in "their" neighborhoods and been attacked financially for it.
They don't make a fuss in store, they contact Corporate and make allegations. Our ovens don't cook things evenly, goofy sh*t like that usually... and these complaints cost money, trust.
With a lot of the franchises eventually, they start to realize that we're being picked on, but what can they do about it? Tell us to serve our own. That's what damn near all of them have sort of mentioned in the past 20 something years lol

Business is war

The healthier choices are 2x or 3x as much as the regular food tho so the ppl that actually eat mcdonalds everyday dont have that option really

Excellence is 30 shootings in one weekend and only 3 dying. That aim is excellence.

This is great business choices and sacrifice . And no excuses.

Yup, most McDonalds are franchised so they can be bought and managed. Also, consider buying franchised grocery stores and operating them in the same community as well.
