I've found that a number of McDonald's Operators don't know how the new USA
president got started in McDonald's. His father is Whitey Andres, the chief pilot
for McDonald's Corp. in the 1970s and early 1980s.
Whitey retired to become a McDonald's Operator opening a store in Mammoth
Lakes, CA in late 1983. Working in the store were his two sons, Russell and Mike.
As I was busy running my own stores I don't know when Whitey sold the store but
do know that Russell became a McDonald's Operator in Los Angeles and Mike some
how ended up working for the company. He left McDonald's for a few years to serve
as CEO of Logan's Roadhouse, a 260 unit restaurant chain.
The following NRN article was published a few months after Andres left Logan's to
be rehired by McDonald's.
