Beating the Heat with Michael Keaton!
Newnan can be described by many as a small, quiet town, but lately Newnan has transformed into its own mini-Hollywood! It all started in the Spring of 2014 with the filming of “Mocking Jay,” the third of the Hunger Games trilogy. During this time Newnan was the work place for award-winning actors like Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence. While filming, did they ever visit our business neighbor, Meat ‘n Greet Restaurant, for their award-winning burgers and fries?
Speaking of Hunger (Games), burgers, and fries…who knew the first-ever McDonald’s was located in downtown Newnan? Well, okay, so it’s a replica. Using some of that old Hollywood magic, Newnan transforms into San Bernardino, California circa 1948 in order to set the stage for Michael Keaton in his role as Ray Kroc, founder of the present-day McDonald’s Empire.Like many start-up businesses, McDonald’s originally experienced a short-lived success of only a few years before opening the first “chain location” on April 15, 1955 near Chicago, Illinois – after being bought out by the entrepreneurial Kroc. We might not have insured the first McDonald’s, but we are ready to handle any of your personal or business insurance needs!
