McDonald’s 40th anniversary

PEYTON NEELY   The Marietta Times

Haylie Wussick and Darian Espinoza, both employees of McDonald’s on Glendale Road, serve Laurie Strahler, who was the store manager of this McDonald’s when it first opened in 1976, on Monday evening. This McDonald’s store will be celebrating its 40th anniversary on Wednesday with apple pies and small fries for 40 cents all day. The Glendale location was the first McDonald’s restaurant in Marietta, opened by owner-operators Walt and Betty Hadler. The restaurant, as well as the other three McDonald’s in Marietta, are now owned and operated by the Hadlers’ daughter, Strahler.
