Just imagine that out of thirty thousandinstitutions in the Russian capital the most visited restaurant is the first opened McDonald's in Moscow on Pushkin Square. For all these years, from 1990 to the present, it served about 3 million customers! The figure is incredible!
How did it all start? How many McDonald's in Moscow?
About everything in order.
A little from the history of creation
McDonald's was already about seventy years old. The history of his appearance is very interesting!
In the distant 1940 in one small settlement,that is in California (USA), at the crossroads of two roads, two siblings Mack and Dick organized a snack restaurant. In it, they offered a menu of a large number of dishes and excellent service. Including for visitors coming by car.
In 1948, the brothers decided to optimize the wholework: the preparation of food (increasing the speed of its preparation), the speed of submission to its customers along with the quality of service. Moreover, the restaurant space became more comfortable, and the atmosphere remained as relaxed and simple as possible.
The menu has been reduced to several dishes offered to visitors:
- Hamburger (worth 15 cents - a feature of the institution!).
- Potato chips.
- Sweet pie.
- Drinks are cooling.
- Tea, coffee, milk.
Soon instead of chips there was a French fries - a very popular and favorite dish for today!
But that was surprising: such an interesting and competitive restaurant was only one - in the hometown of the brothers MacDonald. But the idea of expansion already then visited them.
In the early 50's of the twentieth century, everything changed: the acquaintance of Mac and Dick with the seller of mixers - a man named Ray Crock - completely turned their idea of business!
It was from this meeting that the active distribution of the McDonald's network throughout the world began.
The first McDonald's in Moscow
Opening day of the restaurant was memorable not only for Muscovites, but also for the guests of the city! The premises of "McDonald's" is located on the site of the former cafe "LIRA" on Pushkin Square.
The cherished day - January 31, 1990 - was a bitcloudy in terms of weather, but in spite of this line in front of a new restaurant offering yet unknown to the Russians American cuisine, there were about five thousand people! And for the first day the institution was served by a record number of people - about 30 thousand!
Then this network of restaurants began to expand rapidly. New branches were opened in Moscow, in St. Petersburg and other Russian cities.
