Ray Kroc Signed 1977 Autobiography: "Grinding it Out"
“The two most important requirements for major success are: first, being in the right place at the right time, and second, doing something about it.” -Ray Kroc
McDonald's visionary founder Ray Kroc signed leather bound edition of his book, ''Grinding It Out'', published in 1977. Is the story of a founder's journey building the worlds largest fast food chain empire in history.
Few entrepreneurs can claim to have actually changed the way we live, but Ray Kroc is one of them. His revolutions in food service automation, franchising, shared national training and advertising have earned him a place beside the men who founded not merely businesses but entire new industries. But even more interesting than Ray Kroc the business legend is Ray Kroc the man. Not your typical self-made tycoon, Kroc was 52 when he met the McDonald brothers and opened his first franchise. An incredible story that teaches us dreams don't have deadlines.
