McDonald's Potato, Beef, and Lettuce Suppliers (video)
McDonald's Potato Supplier, Frank Martinez: "Dream Come True". Growing perfect potatoes takes the right amount of water, rich soil and, in Frank's case, a lifetime of experience.

Three generations of Foglesongs work together every day to raise the kind of high quality beef that make some of the most iconic hamburgers in the world.
