Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1963
undated
[1972?]
1964
Scope and Contents:
The subseries consists of a property checklist and a lease. The property checklist was to be completed by real estate personnel, and it detailed traffic, distance to business activities, land information, zoning data, and general site information such as water, sewer, natural gas and wiring lines. The lease is an example of what terms were agreed to between the "lessor" and McDonald's System, Inc. The bulk of the sales materials include proposals developed by Wood in five areas: System of Success, Public Relations, Sales Areas, Sales Promotions, and Miscellaneous. The "System of Success Communication Within and Without" is a proposal that addresses the issue of troubleshooting and training personnel. Wood's method is based on check chart comparisons and communication ideas. This proposal contains a McDonald's organizational chart. The second proposal is "Public Relations" and contains Wood's outline for "nostalgic paraphernalia" or a "longing for the good times." The "Sales Area" proposal details the sales success system for certain sales territories in the United States and for how McDonald's can succeed. Sales Promotion defines the objective and a plan for approaching it in very general terms. Lastly, the miscellaneous file holds a drive-in restaurant industry consumer survey conducted by the Consumer Research Section at WCOL radio in Cincinnati, Ohio. This survey also contains three articles from operators of coffee houses and drive-in restaurants discussing the services, food and coffee quality, and associated costs and profits. There are some examples of "tests" given to window men to check their speed and accuracy in calculating the cost of food and in making correct change.

There is one black, plastic vinyl briefcase emblazoned with the McDonald's logo.
