Diane Duffy

Meet Diane Duffy, a former teenage employee of our Rockland McDonald’s.
Diane began her first McDonald’s job as a Rockland High School student. When she won a national front counter service contest, always dazzling her customers, Ray Kroc sent his private jet to bring Diane to spend a few days at the Oakbrook headquarters. Diane remained inspired, and to this day Diane flies as a flight attendant for a commercial jet liner.

Diane also inspired her little brother Tim, and her kid brother went on to become a High School student employee of the Rockland McDonald’s … and now Tim is a jet fighter pilot. Diane also has a big brother named Brian, and guess what he became? …You guessed it, an astronaut!

The most wonderful part of this story is that in 2017, the Napoli Management Company celebrated 30 more inspirational student employees, who, just like Diane Duffy, are fire crackers who continue to dazzle our customers– day in & day out– some of whom are highlighted here. The story of our 3 Duffy kids has been on display at the Rockland dining room & continues to give back to our Rockland community. As owner of the Rockland McDonald’s, Napoli Management is proud to have had the privilege of being Diane & Tim Duffy’s first job.
