MacLaff, Inc., Owner and Operator of McDonald’s Restaurants announces 50 Year Anniversary and Ronald McDonald House Charities Family Room at Our Lady of Lourdes Women and Children’s Hospital

McDonald’s owner/operators, EJ and Chris Krampe along with their more than 2200 South Louisiana team members, will be celebrating 50 years in business for all of 2022! EJ and Chris’ father, Ed Krampe Jr. began operating his first McDonald’s restaurant in Lafayette, La. in 1972. “We have been bringing families together to enjoy fun food in South Louisiana for over 50 years. We look forward to celebrating this milestone with our guests, our employees, and our entire McDonald’s family and community throughout 2022”, said Chris Krampe. 

In conjunction with the ongoing celebration throughout 2022, the Krampe family is also celebrating construction of a Ronald McDonald House Charities Family Room at Our Lady of Lourdes Woman and Children’s hospital, which is scheduled for completion in 2022. “We have worked diligently with the Our Lady of Lourdes Foundation and our Global partners at RMHC to bring this facility to fruition right here in Lafayette, knowing how important an amenity it is to our area families.” says EJ Krampe. RMHC manages facilities across the country providing a home away from home for families with seriously ill children. “Having a “Zero Cost, Like Home” option for South Louisiana families who are dealing with childhood illness is something Lafayette can be really proud of.” says Krampe. Ronald McDonald Family Rooms give a family with a sick child what they need most… each other. In the spirit of giving the community an opportunity to be involved, we are encouraging our guests at Lafayette area McDonald’s restaurants to “Round Up” to the next dollar to support Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Louisiana.
