McDonald’s will reopen a restaurant in Ukraine, closed six months ago due to the war
McDonald’s will begin reopening its restaurants in Ukraine in the coming months. The company announced this out of solidarity after the situation in the war-torn country of Ukraine normalized somewhat and ceased business with Russia.
US fast-food giant McDonald’s will start reopening its restaurants in Ukraine in the coming months. The company announced this out of solidarity after the situation in the war-torn country of Ukraine normalized somewhat and ended its business with Russia. McDonald’s closed its restaurant in Ukraine six months ago following Russian attacks. But, it was paying salaries to its 10,000 employees in the country.
Some restaurants will open gradually
McDonald’s said on Thursday it would gradually close some of its restaurants in Ukraine’s capital, Kyiv, and in the western part of the country where other businesses had announced they would close after the war.
Clothing companies Zara and Mango have outlets in Kyiv. Paul Pomroy, senior vice president of international marketing for McDonald’s, said in a message to employees that he had spoken extensively to his employees, who expressed their desire to return to work and reopen our restaurant in Ukraine. Pomroy said it was a small but important step towards normality.
McDonald’s has 109 restaurants in total in Ukraine
There are 109 McDonald’s restaurants in Ukraine. But the company did not say how many outlets it will open. Ukraine’s economy has been badly damaged by the war and reopening businesses with limited capacity will help the country. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) estimates that the Ukrainian economy will contract by 35% this year. In protest against the war, McDonald’s announced the closure of its business by selling 850 of its restaurants in Russia.
