1. McDonald’s originally sold hot dogs, not hamburgers.

In 1937, brothers Dick and Mac McDonald launched the Airdrome hot dog stand with a $5,000 loan. It wasn't until 1948 that they revamped their business and turned it into a burgers and milkshakes joint. (In the 1990s, the restaurant tested hot dogs at several Midwestern U.S. locations. They've also been spotted in Japanese locations — see photo above.)

4. 87,000 people recently petitioned McDonald’s to add a veggie burger to their menu.

“Adding plant-based protein options at McDonald’s will appeal to workers out for a quick lunch, families with health-conscious members out to dinner, children on field trips, and anyone looking for something different than the current menu at McDonald’s where even the french fries contain beef flavoring,” reads the petition. The company currently sells veggie burgers in India, but not in the U.S.
