What happened to the closure of McDonald's in Russia

The first new Russian McDonald's called Vkusno i tochka opens in Moscow


R. Gelfenstein - The quintessential fast food brand closed its 850 restaurants in Russia following the invasion of Ukraine. A local brand bought them and that's how they work now. The McDonald's group announced on Monday that it would leave the Russian market and began a process of selling the company throughout the country after 30 years of activity.

The former restaurants in Russia of the McDonald's group, which announced its departure from the country after more than 30 years of presence in reaction to the invasion of Ukraine, were renamed "Vkusno i tochka" ("Delicious. Dot") by its new Russian Holder, who reopened part of the facilities this Sunday (12.06.2022), coinciding with the celebration of Russia Day.

"Our goal is that our customers don't notice the difference in quality or atmosphere," Paroev added at the opening ceremony in Moscow's Pushkin Square, the same place where the first McDonald's opened in 1990.

Alexander Govor is the chain's new owner, who has ensured that 51,000 former McDonald's employees across Russia keep their jobs. "I am very proud to have had the honor of growing this business. I am ambitious and plan not only to open all 850 restaurants, but also to develop new ones," Govor said.

The employer does not foresee any short-term staff reductions. "First they asked me to keep the employees and give people jobs, and that's what I'll do," Govor told the state TASS.
