Read more on McMarro and its upbringing –
“Hernando and Fran Marroquin, established their first McDonald’s restaurant in Torrance California in 1988. They both left successful careers elsewhere to venture into the restaurant business. Shortly after establishing their first restaurant the opportunity arose for growth in the Antelope Valley.
In 1990, they sold their restaurant in Torrance and moved their family to Palmdale where they opened a restaurant in Mojave followed by another one in Lancaster. They both worked endlessly to establish their restaurants and a presence in the Antelope Valley. Growth came very quickly for the Marroquin as they expanded to Rosamond and California City as well as continued growth in Lancaster and Palmdale.
In 2007 their son Andrew joined the company and was approved by McDonald’s as an Owner/ Operator. With his help, rapid growth continued for the family. Today, the Marroquin own 32 McDonald’s restaurants reaching from Bishop in the north, Oxnard on the coast, and a concentration in the Antelope and San Fernando Valleys.
The Marroquin, including their daughter, Amanda, are all graduates of UCLA. With Hernando and Fran earning Master’s degrees in Business and Counseling respectively. The Family recognizes the importance of education and has experienced first-hand the opportunities that can arise, and the doors that can open as a result of a college education.
The Marroquin family has given back to the community in many ways throughout their career as Owner/Operators. They have sat on many boards, lead many organizations, and contributed thousands of dollars to many worthy causes in the communities surrounding their restaurants. Education has always been a passion for the Marroquin.
Another program, “I’m Going to College” brings elementary and middle school children onto the college campus to experience a college football game, tour, and tailgate. The purpose is to expose the children as well as their parents to college and to the opportunities that exist there. The “Chasing Your Dreams” Scholarship Program was created by Hernando in 2013, as a means of recognizing, and helping local youth achieve their dreams of an education.
Since its inception, the Marroquin family have given out close to 400 scholarships to deserving youth. The goal of the family is to expand their scholarship program into the San Fernando Valley, Oxnard, Bishop, and Lone Pine. “
