      Family owned and committed to the communities we serve. Hundreds of caring, conscientious people dedicated to giving you reason to say i'm lovin' it!

      In 1967, Jerry and Marcelle Bear purchased the Larkin Avenue restaurant from McDonald?s Corporation. Nothing more than a walk-up window with seating for four, they managed the restaurant themselves with only 18 employees on staff. That first year at Larkin they served 160,000 meals. The Bear Family has accomplished much over the years, and still their business continues to grow. By the end of 2012, the organization served 5.6 million meals! It has been 46 years since the Bear Family first opened the Larkin Avenue Restaurant where the Golden Arches continue to stand out - now as the most recognizable brand in the world!
