McDonald’s re-opens in Kyiv, Ukraine in phased reopening program

US burger chain McDonald’s on Tuesday re-opened its business in Kyiv, Ukraine following Russia’s invasion of the country seven months ago.

The news is a good sign of things slowly going back to normal in the capital as more information on the business is set to be confirmed by the company.

Through a statement, McDonald’s confirmed talks with Ukraine officials including security heads and suppliers who both agreed on delivery only in the first phase of the operations.

“In October, these three restaurants will fully re-open along with McDrive and express windows,” 

“As part of the phased reopening program, seven more stores in Kyiv will open, followed by additional restaurants in the capital and other cities in the west of the country,” said McDonald’s in a statement

On Tuesday morning, media outlets reported a beehive of activities outside one of the restaurants as employees gathered outside to collect orders.

Ukrainians have welcomed the move as one of support for their country as they look forward to restoring the country back to its glory days.

In February, the US burger chain confirmed its exit from the Ukraine market noting that the environment was not suitable for its business. They then sold the restaurants to businessman Alexander Govor.
