MOSCOW, March 30. /TASS/. The St. Petersburg Branch of the Russian Federal Antimonopoly Service has received payment confirmation about a 110,000 rubles (roughly $1,950) fine slapped on a Burger King restaurant for not giving a customer a free cherry pie, the branch’s press service said on Thursday.
According to the press service, this kind of offence is punishable with a fine ranging from 100,000 rubles (roughly $1,775) to 500,000 rubles (roughly $8,870). "The St. Petersburg Branch of the Russisn Federal Antimonopoly Service imposed a fine of 110,000 rubles on the organization, the fine has been fully paid," the press service added.
Last year, a Burger King customer filed an appeal with the local branch of the Federal Antimonopoly Service saying that while dining at a Burger King restaurant, he was to be given a free cherry pie as part of an ongoing promotion. However, the restaurant’s senior manager told the customer that since he did not ask for the free item, he was not going to receive any, though the promotion said: "Receive a free cherry pie when ordering dinner with a burger."
The Burger Rus company is the largest Russian franchise of the Burger King fast food restaurant chain. According to open sources, the company has more than 300 restaurants across Russia.
