In 1958, Golin opened its doors in Chicago when our founder, Al Golin, made a cold call to an aspiring businessman with a couple of hamburger stands. That man was Ray Kroc, and his business, McDonald's, remains one of our agency's largest clients. Since that day over half a century ago, Golin’s reputation has been one of an innovator and leader in progressive corporate and consumer communications. What began as a small agency in Chicago in 1956 has grown into one of the world's largest communications firms. In North America, we are supported by 12 offices coast to coast, along with a global network of 33 wholly owned offices and 24 affiliate offices. Golin provides unequaled expertise, resources and commitment to every client.
One of McDonald’s most iconic menu items, the Big Mac, celebrated its 50th Anniversary creating an opportunity for the brand to reignite love for the Big Mac. Since its invention, the Big Mac has traversed the globe and has become so ubiquitous that The Economist even uses the Big Mac as an international measure of global currency. Understanding the global nature of the Big Mac, Golin knew something big had to be done in order to properly celebrate the iconic sandwich on its golden anniversary. Read More
