McDonald's CEO, admirer of the food chain from decades

"Me and my mate used to go across the park, jump on the Met line to get the tube into Harrow. There was a sports shop we always used to go into, and there was a McDonald's".

Steve Easterbrook became CEO of McDonald's eight months ago. But he's been working for the company for more than 20 years and he's been a fan of the chain's food for decades, reported Business Insider.

In 1978, when he was an 11-year-old student at Watford grammar school for boys in the UK, he and his friends used to take the subway to the London borough of Harrow to visit McDonald's.

"Me and my mate used to go across the park, jump on the Met line to get the tube into Harrow. There was a sports shop we always used to go into, and there was a McDonald's," he told the Guardian in 2008.

"We used to go off with three or four quid in our pocket. That would cover our train fare, mooching around Harrow and going to McDonald's. It was the first time I had shakes and fries", he adds.

Steve Easterbrook has made a number of changes to the quarter pounder since taking the helm of the company eight months ago.

After becoming CEO, Easterbrook has asked cooks to start toasting the buns longer and he has increased the size of the meat patties. He has also changed how the meat patties are cooked and seared.
