McDonald’s Celebrates 25 Years in Russia


One of the world’s biggest chains of fast-food restaurants marked its 25th anniversary of business in Russia Saturday, Jan. 31.

The first McDonald’s was opened in 1990 on Pushkin Square in Moscow, one year before the collapse of the Soviet Union, and became a pioneer for the many foreign food chains that flooded Russia afterward.



The restaurant was temporarily closed by the state food safety watchdog in August last year, and reopened in November.

Nowadays 471 McDonald’s restaurants serve more than 950,000 customers per day in Russia.

Moved to the Big Tomata in the nineties from San Francisco. No Suburbs for me with its single colored houses and lawns and the excitement of pulling out my trash can once a week. I'm a CityFella , a part time New Yorker. I'm happiest in the Center City where people the streets and people are alive. I'm still waiting to buy a 34th floor condo somewhere downtown/Midtown with a nightclub. "Hurry I'm old" My politics are somewhere in the middle with a needle that constantly moves. I'm too liberal to be a Republican and too conservative to be a Democrat. Everything interests me . I've come to love Sacratomato, Its a nice town in cheap sensible shoes .
