A 28-year-old New Orleans resident has become the youngest Black woman to become a McDonald’s restaurant franchise owner.
Jade Colin, who pondered the idea of starting her own business while in college, launched her career working at a local McDonald’s. She later followed in the footsteps of her parents, who in 2010 purchased their own McDonald’s franchise, and after graduating from the University of Louisiana in 2012 with a degree in business management, Colin applied for the intensive, two-year “Next Generation” training program for children of McDonald’s owners.
After completing the program, Colin managed her parent’s franchise, while planning to her own McDonald’s.
