McDonald's successor opens in Russia
The successor to McDonald's in Russia, "Vkusno - i tochka," reopened 15 restaurants in Moscow and its suburbs on Sunday, three months after the US fast food chain ended its business in the country.
Oleg Paroev, general director of the company, announced the new brand meaning "Delicious - and that's it," during a ceremony at the restaurant in downtown Moscow's Pushkinskaya Square, the first McDonald's restaurant to open in the Soviet Union in 1990.
Another 50 outlets will be reopened on Monday, and roughly 200 are expected to reopen by the end of June.
All of McDonald's former 850 restaurants across Russia are expected to reopen by the end of summer, Paroev told reporters.
