It may have only been 8 years ago that Michael Lane took ownership of his first McDonald’s, but he’s spent a lifetime under the golden arches. In 1975, Michael’s father, Bob Lane started the Lane enterprise by purchasing his first McDonald’s franchise in Arkansas City, Kansas.
Working for his father in El Dorado throughout high school, Michael always knew he wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps. After graduating from Grinnell College in 2001, Michael spent time in Los Angeles where he met his wife, Lindsey.
The couple later moved to Wichita, where Michael worked in multiple locations from 2005 to 2008. In 2009, Michael took ownership of his first McDonald’s in Pratt, Kansas. Today, Michael is the owner/operator of five McDonald’s spanning four cities, including Arkansas City, Winfield, Derby and Wichita.
