In 1965 Marvin McDonald opened McDonald’s Mobile Homes with the goal of providing affordable quality homes to the residents of Southeast Teaxs. Now, over 55 years later with his son Todd McDonald, the McDonald’s mission is the same, to continue to offer the best value in factory built housing as well as fast and friendly service after the sale.
Marvin McDonald has been a pilar of the Jasper Community for over 55 years. He started McDonald’s Mobile Homes in 1965 located at 1011 E. Gibson St in Jasper, TX. Since that time the business has grown to include a second sales lot located at 2025 S. Wheeler St. in Jasper, TX and is the longest active mobile home dealership in Texas. Through the years, McDonald’s has worked with several different manufacturers and finance companies. During slow economic times McDonald’s has refurbished used mobile homes for retail and even financed them in-house when it was impossible to get financed. On occasion, McDonald’s has bought several hundred lots of used homes from CIT, GE and other finance companies and sold them wholesale. Along with mobile home sales, McDonald’s also sells used travel trailers and used cars; but Marvin McDonald’s entrepreneurship did not stop there adding climate and non climate controlled storage units with car washes, exotic hunting ranches and tow truck services to name a few; bringing employment opportunities to the local communities of SETX. After Rita McDonald’s was awarded emergency housing contracts placing over 3,800 temporary housing units throughout the Golden Triangle. Mr. McDonald has served as a board member of the First National Bank of Jasper for 37 years and as a board member of Jasper Economic Development Corporation for 5 years.
