SANTA MONICA, CA (March 1, 2017) – Experience the rise of the biggest fast food franchise in history when the critically acclaimed The Founder arrives on Digital HD on April 4 and on Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital HD), DVD and On Demand April 18 from Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company. Rotten Tomatoes Certified Fresh, The Founder chronicles the rise of the biggest fast food chain in history.

Directed by John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side), The Founder features the true story of how Ray Kroc (Keaton), a struggling salesman from Illinois, met Mac and Dick McDonald, who were running a burger operation in 1950s Southern California.

Writer Robert Siegel (The Wrestler) details how Kroc maneuvered himself into a position to be able to pull the company from the brothers and create a billion-dollar empire. The film also stars Laura Dern as Ray Kroc’s first wife Ethel, John Carroll Lynch as Mac McDonald and Nick Offerman as Dick McDonald.
