Sisters inherit mum’s business skills, own all McDonald’s restaurants in the city
In related news, Briefly News previously reported that two sisters Nicole Enearu and Kerri Harper-Howie, are business owners in Compton, California, owning every single McDonald's diner in the area.
The two have been left to operate the business by their mother, Patricia Williams, who started running the franchises back in the 1980s.
According to NBCLX, the sister's parents started the franchise but their mother bought their father's shares from the business when they got a divorce.
Kerri said their mother had to work hard to secure loans, and she started expanding from one to five restaurants by 1995. The sisters left their jobs with Nicole being a social worker and Kerri a lawyer and took a chance in the business. In 2019, their mother retired and left them to continue the legacy.
Nicole said they work and live in the community and try to be engaged with them by, for example, providing necessities for school kids.
The sisters credit their mother for what they have been able to achieve, and their only hope is to live up to the legacy she built.
