When Russia invaded Ukraine back in January (2022), McDonald’s shut down its fast-food restaurants in Russia. The golden arches may have gone, but 15 McDonald’s restaurants reopened in the country with a new look and ownership.
According to CNN Business, Alexander Nikolaevich Gover is the new owner. And McDonald’s has been renamed “Vkusno & Tochka” which means “Tasty and that’s it.” And it’s not just the new look, there’s a new business plan for expansion. A press release says they plan to open 200 branches by the end of June and all branches by the end of the summer.
