MOSCOW, April 16 (Itar-Tass) —— McDonald’s plans to open 45 restaurants in Russia in 2012, McDonald’s President in Russia and Eastern Europe Khamzat Khasbulatov told journalists.
According to Khasbulatov, McDonald’s restaurants will be opened in the cities of Saransk, Izhevsk, Brynask, Orel, and others. It complies with the company’s long-term plans to open up to 45 new restaurants in Russia a year.
In 2011, the company launched 37 restaurants in Russia. Currently, the McDonald’s network embraces 314 restaurants in more than 85 cities.
In 2011, McDonald’s spent about five billion roubles to open new and to overhaul the existing restaurants (it takes about one million roubles to overhaul one public catering establishment). In 2012, the company plans to spend more than five billion roubles for these purposes, Khasbulatov said.
The company also expects that poultry processing enterprises will be commissioned in 2012 in Russia’s Tula and Kaliningrad regions, and a souse-making line in the republic of Chuvashia. Apart from that, the company plans provide for the launch of a distribution centre in the republic of Chuvashia, a vegetable processing facility/ and a bakery. These facilities will help meet more than 80 percent of the company’s demand in Russia, Khasbulatov noted.
