"McDonald's" Do not slow down the pace of development in Russia

"McDonald's" plans in 2016 to open in Russia 60-65 restaurants and almost the same in 2017. This was told by the managing director of the network in Russia Alexei Semenov, RIA Novosti reported.

The volume of investments this year, he said, will be about 9 billion rubles.

"Last year we opened 59 restaurants, this year we plan to open an order of 60-65 restaurants. That is, we do not slow down the pace of opening, "he said.

At the same time, he noted that the development of the network in the Far East is not yet under consideration in the next year. "At the moment there is no supply system that would allow us to work effectively in this geography," he said. According to Alexei Semenov, this will become more realistic on the horizon 8-10 years.

In March 2015, the chairman of the State Duma's international affairs committee, Alexei Pushkov, suggested that McDonald's and Coca-Cola companies support the anti-Russian sanctions and rid the country of its products. However, this idea was not approved by the Federation Council. Deputy Chairman of the Committee on Constitutional Legislation Konstantin Dobrynin said that in conditions of sanctions, Western companies should be given more preferences so that Russia would become an "offshore attractive for a good western business"

At present, 574 restaurant McDonald's is open in Russia.
