Director Elle Ginter, We Are Unlimited, McDonald's Celebrate Patricia Williams, International Women's Day
In this short celebrating International Women’s Day, Patricia Williams shares her story about becoming a McDonald’s owner-operator 30 years ago. She quit her job and took everything she had to buy her first restaurant. Fast forward to today and now she and her daughters Kerri and Nicole own 18 McDonald’s restaurants.
To commemorate International Women’s Day, at Patricia Williams’ first McDonald’s in Lynwood, Calif., every “M” has been flipped to a “W,” including the iconic Golden Arches McDonald’s sign.
Elle Ginter of Sanctuary Content directed this McDonald’s hero film for agency We Are Limited.
