Born on an Air Force Base, Kevin Hern gained an early appreciation for the sacrifices that military families make. In high school, Kevin earned an Architectural Drafting Certificate in concurrent Technical enrollment, which he used to work and pay for his Engineering degree. Later in life, he earned his MBA.
He went on to work as an Aerospace Engineer for Rockwell. Then began saving to purchase his first McDonald’s Restaurant by small business ventures: writing computer programs to automate tasks for businesses, real estate, and even hog farming.
In 1999, Kevin literally sold the hog farm to buy two McDonald’s restaurants in Muskogee. He later started an organization that owns 10 McDonald’s restaurants. It employs over 400 people in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area.
