Learn All About Masker Family McDonald’s

How We Got Started


The Masker Family McDonald’s story starts where a lot of us did – A recent high school graduate looking for a job and trying to decide what to do with his one, great life. That was Ray Masker Jr. in the Summer of 1967. He never thought his life-long career would be with McDonald’s. But when opportunity knocks, you answer!

Ray joined the Marines, enrolled in classes at a local college, married his high school sweetheart, and started working at McDonald’s as a crew person. Little did he know the incredible journey that awaited.

When he completed his service in the military and earned an Associate’s Degree in Accounting, Ray had already been working his way up the McDonald’s corporate ladder.

While working as the Operations Manager for the San Diego market, Ray Masker Jr. actually worked directly with Ray Kroc, the founder of McDonald’s.

A proud moment for Ray Masker Jr. was when he purchased his very first McDonald’s restaurant in 1987.

Masker Family McDonald’s Today


Ray Masker III, Ray Jr.’s son, and his wife Tammi joined the company in 2002. He worked as an Assistant Manager while Tammi worked part-time in the office. Over the years, Ray III has worked his way through the ranks and helped keep the Masker Family McDonald’s growing and thriving. After the devastation of Katrina, Ray III stepped into an Area Supervisor role to help rebuild the workforce. Today, the Masker Family owns 11 McDonald’s restaurants – 7 in Slidell, Louisiana and 4 in Biloxi, Mississippi.
