BLACK REMAINS GOLDEN
The National Black McDonald’s Operators Association (NBMOA) remains the largest organization of established African American entrepreneurs in the world. We remain a dynamic and dominant organization.
A GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY
On December 21, 1968, Herman Petty became the first African American to own a McDonald’s franchise. McDonald’s partnership with Herman Petty opened doors and gave hope to a generation of ambitious African American businessmen and women seeking a piece of the American Dream. During 2019, the NBMOA celebrates 50 years of McDonald’s partnership with African American franchisees.
The NBMOA welcomes new leadership that has risen from inside our ranks. In today’s business and political environments, leadership requires courage, empathy, vision, strategic prowess and a significant business acumen.
