Our founder, Howard Eric Larson, opened the first local McDonald’s #565, located on the corner of Riverside Drive and North 2nd Street in Clarksville, Tennessee. That store was the 7th McDonald’s opened in Tennessee! Shortly thereafter, he opened his second McDonald’s in Hopkinsville, KY. He found and married his beautiful wife, Mabel, in 1965. They had two children. Howard “Eric” Larson II was born in 1969 and Sherri Lynn Larson in 1970. Together, as a family they continued to open additional McDonald’s in Dickson, Tennessee. Sadly, Mr. Larson passed away in 1985. Mabel took over as the sole owner of operating those stores and building many more during the next 15 years. She showed incredible fortitude to continue the operations alone, while raising two teen age children. Mabel’s brother, David Howell, helped immensely to continue the success Mr. Larson had started. Together, Howard and Mabel’s ability to take risk coupled with David’s ability to manage people are the reasons for this company’s early and continued long term success. 





Howard and Mabel’s son Howard “Eric” Larson II owns and operates all 14 stores. Mabel is still a partner in some of those stores and handles local marketing on a daily basis. Those stores are broken up into two separate running operating entities. The first is “Larson Enterprises” made up of 7 stores. Those stores are #565, #3858, #4406, #10468, #10699, #15056, and #17667. The second is “H.E. Larson LLC” made up of 7 stores. Those stores are #12420, #21704, #24284, #26081, #27884, #36073 and #36375.
