Newshub18:McDonald’s new name in Russia.

Sunday is going to be the beginning of a new chapter for fast food lovers in Russia. On this day, the US fast food chain McDonald’s will start new activities in Russia under a new name and ownership. McDonald’s has left Russia permanently after three decades of business.

Their restaurant is being launched in Russia with a new identity. Today is Russia Day, according to Reuters. The Russians will celebrate the country’s independence. McDonald’s new journey will start today. A new McDonald’s restaurant will be opened in Moscow’s Pushkin Square.

McDonald’s first began operations in Pushkin Square in January 1990. McDonald’s opened its first restaurant in Moscow when the then-Soviet Union offered business opportunities for Western brands. Later they gradually expanded their business throughout Russia.

However, neither side was sure how much money Alexander Govard had to spend to buy McDonald’s restaurants. Many are said to have wanted to take over the firm.
Although a new logo has been unveiled to start a new business, the new name has been kept secret. Last Friday, when the name of the McDonald’s app was changed to ‘My Burger’ in Russia, there was an online response. Authorities later said the new name was temporary
