But he miraculously survived and used his near-death experience to build Coca-Cola’s $74 billion dollar brand.
Raymond Albert “Ray” Kroc (October 5, 1902 – January 14, 1984) was an American fast-food tycoon. He joined the California company McDonald’s in 1954 after the McDonald brothers had franchised 6 locations out of their original 1940 operation in San Bernardino. This set the stage for national expansion with the help of Kroc, eventually leading to a global franchise, making it the most successful fast-food corporation in the world. Kroc was included in Time 100: The Most Important People of the Century, and amassed a fortune during his lifetime. He owned the San Diego Padres baseball team from 1974 until his death in 1984.
