Russian division of McDonald's on Wednesday shut three of the four outlets in Moscow where Russia’s consumer rights federal watchdog agency, Rospotrebnadzor, had exposed ‘violations’ of sanitary safety requirements.
One of the outlets affected by the provisional shutting is the historic restaurant at 29, Bolshaya Bronnaya Street, widely known across the former USSR as the McDonald’s on Pushkin Square, the company’s first-ever outlet in the Soviet Union.
McDonald’s was the first Western fast-food caterer to tread the swathes of Russia. On the date of opening on January 31, 1990, the outlet on Pushkin Square was visited by 30,000 people, which set an absolute record in terms of daily attendance.
For millions of Muscovites and people who came to this city in the early 1990’s, the place will be remembered for the huge lines of aspirants wishing to get inside the first restaurant. They would be inescapably pointed out by all the tour guides during bus tours of the city.
