NOVOSIBIRSK, June 18. /TASS/. McDonald's will not reduce the number of restaurants in Russia, the representative of the Russian division of the company told TASS Thursday.
"In 2015 we are planning to open about 50 new restaurants, including Siberia, and to continue expanding our network of domestic suppliers that already supply 85% of our products," he explained.
Earlier, McDonald’s President for Russia and Central Europe Khamzat Khasbulatov said that the investment volume in the development of Russian restaurants chain will remain at the level of last year - around 6 bln rubles ($112.2 mln).
American television channel ABC reported today that one of the world's leading fast food chain McDonald's in 2015 plans to close more restaurants in the United States than open new ones. A similar situation was observed in 1970. The exact number of restaurants was not stated. Earlier, McDonald's representatives announced that in 2015 it planned to close about 700 restaurants around the world, including the United States.
McDonald's fast food chain was founded in 1940 by brothers Richard and Maurice McDonald. The company employs about 36,000 people all over the world, more than 14,000 of them - in the United States.
