Take McDonald's. Once upon a time, the global behemoth was a tiny barbecue joint in San Bernardino, Calif. operated by two brothers. And it was a failure. Eight years later, the McDonald brothers reopened -- substituting china and silverware for paper wrappers and cardboard cups. Barbecue was out and burgers, fries and shakes were in. Once the brothers partnered with milkshake maven Ray Kroc in the 1950s, business boomed. Kroc later bought the brothers out and went on to grow the company.

Now the company sells 75 hamburgers per second in 31,000 locations across 18 countries.
