(Reuters) – The first 15 restaurants of former McDonald’s Corp (NYSE:) will reopen in Moscow on Sunday under new ownership and a new name, “Vkusno & tochka”, which means “Tasty & that’s it”, the company said.
Another 50 restaurants will be open on Monday, Vkusno & tochka said.
Sunday marks a new dawn for Russia’s fast-food lovers as restaurants formerly run by the hugely popular Western fast-food chain reopen under new branding and with renamed burgers, more than three decades after McDonald’s first opened in Moscow.
