What’s the Quiz About?
Can you figure out which countries had the first McDonald’s? If you can, then this quiz is for you. You’re given the year that the restaurant was first built in the country, and you have to give the country. The first country should be a given, in fact, 99.5% of users get this country right. (Hint: It’s the USA). The rest of the countries are less obvious. Some countries are far more surprising. You have 3 minutes to enter all 10 countries. This isn’t enough time to just list countries randomly. Try to be logical about which countries you’re trying. Put yourself into Ray Kroc’s mind. If you were trying to get your Big Macs in every corner of the world, where would you start?
