McDonald's of Southwest Louisiana had its first store open in Calcasieu Parish in 1972. Melvin Gehrig, Sr. and his wife Eleanor with help from their son Darrell Gehrig opened the store in Lake Charles on Prien Lake Road. After the second store was added on Ruth Street in Sulphur in 1984, Doug Gehrig moved to Lake Charles to work with his family. Today the company, which is owned and operated by Doug Gehrig, employs over 600 people in stores around Calcasieu parish and consistently ranks in the top 50 privately owned business in the parish.
