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).
