Russians standing up their replacement for McDonald’s

| June 11, 2022

McDonald’s sold its Russian chains after it made good on its decision to pull out of Russia. The restaurant chains that served under McDonald’s will be serving under a new name. It appears that many of the menu items that McDonald’s offered will be offered in the renamed, rebranded operation but under different names.

From Newsmax Finance:

The name of the Russian version of McDonald’s — a fast-food icon in the United States since the 1950’s — is closely guarded. Earler reports said it could be “Fun and Tasty.” New hearsay says it’s “My Burger.”

The relaunch will begin on Russia Day, a patriotic holiday celebrating the country’s independence, at the same flagship location in Moscow’s Pushkin Square where McDonald’s first opened in Russia in January 1990.

In the early 1990s, as the Soviet Union crumbled, McDonald’s came to embody a thawing of Cold War tensions and was a vehicle for millions of Russians to sample American food and culture. The brand’s exit is now a powerful symbol of how Russia and the West are once again turning their backs on each other.

McDonald’s last month said it was selling its restaurants in Russia to one of its local licensees, Alexander Govor. The deal marked one of the most high-profile business departures since Russia sent tens of thousands of troops into Ukraine on Feb. 24.

McDonald’s iconic “Golden Arches” have been taken down at sites in Moscow and St. Petersburg, where they will make way for a new logo comprising two fries and a hamburger patty against a green background. The reopening will initially cover 15 locations in Moscow and the surrounding region.

No McShitski?

Naw, but there will prolly be a “Big Ivan”. Fillet of Sturgeon? Cavier Muffinsev? Somehow don’t see the Ruskkies wasting a potato on frying it when they could turn the potato into vodka. Remember when the Russians were just Happy to have a Meal? As long as they remain a Godless Country they will never have a Chic-Fil-A. Saw a meme on evening past(?). Showed a rack/aisle full of loaves of bread. Caption read “Bread lined up waiting for people.” Next panel showed a line of Russians. That caption read “People lined up waiting for bread.”

Surf around YouTube for the video of a Cuban Man walking into a Wal Mart for the first time, that also testimony of just how wonderful socialism truly is!

There is a Cuban couple I watch on YouTube. Their names are Yoel and Mari.

API, searched for and found the video on Touyoob. It was good. Though I had to shake my head and laugh when he picked up the onion, marveled at its size, compared it to a baseball, and pretended to throw a pitch.

If I’d seen that video on mute, without subtitles, and without knowing the title of the video, and saw him to pretend to pitch an onion, I’d immediately suspect the guy was a Cuban.

I hope some minor league scouts watch it.

“As long as they are a Godless country they will never have a Chik-Fil-A”.
Don’t see why not. Ever since Jr took over from Dad, Jr has turn Chik-Fil-A into a Godless establishment.
Sure, the restaurant, the public face, remains the same. After all, don’t want to scare away your customer base ($$$$$).
Remember they also have their Foundation.
Dad used to donate from the Foundation to Christian/religious based causes.
Jr stopped all that and now the Foundation donates to Liberal causes; gay, LGBT+, who knows what else.
I haven’t been to a CFA in several years. Yes, they have good food and treat their workers right.
But I won’t give them my money to give to such Libtard causes.

Hey, hey as a very proud American of Polish decent please don’t confuse your ski’s. What you are looking for is a
McShitsky.

Here is the Sunday headline from the Daily Mail about the REAL McShitski: “Vladimir Putin’s bodyguards ‘collect his excrement on foreign trips and take it back with them to Moscow in dedicated briefcase to stop Western spies collecting intelligence about his health'”
Wonder if his bodyguards compete for the “honor” of collecting  💩 ?

They literally collected Kruschev’s doo-doo when he visited the USA and other than finding out he could have used a little more fiber in his diet, analyzing it was a waste of time.

Why did the Russian airliner crash? Ran out of coal.

(Got nostalgic. Cold War joke.)

“I’m McDowell’s. They got the Golden Arches, mine is the Golden Arcs. They got the Big Mac, I got the Big Mick. We both got two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles and onions, but their buns have sesame seeds.”

In the small town I allegedly grew up in, a man named Dickerson owned a 7-11 type store. He built a small fast food restaurant next door. He swore he was gonna name it McDickersons. Pretty sure you miscreants can figure out what he was gonna call his double burger.

Near Microsoft HQ is a low-priced drive-in burger place called “Dick’s”. Bill Gates is one of their frequent customers. They’ve opened new drive-in’s around the Seattle suburbs because everybody likes Dick’s. 😜

Looks like the russians were russhin to get into the fast food business and I figured that they wouldn’t be in any rush to get it going with the Ukrainian war going on.

Rumor has it that their czar, I mean CEO, nixed the idea to name their burgers after T72, T80 and T90 tanks. He wasn’t worried so much about the failed military connection but that when they heated ‘em up, the top bun would fly into the air. Supposedly the Armata Burger doesn’t do this but they are too afraid to test it.

That would be like calling out the number “B-52” at an Iraqi Bingo Game!

For a second I thought one of our National Guardsmen snuck over there….

I can see that real estate deal being a bargain for the Russian. Rubles on the dollar.

Green Thumb

All-Points Logistics should get in on this contract.

Phil Monkress can claim he is of Russian heritage.

He has claimed everything else.

“Tasty & That’s It” the name’s agreed to mean. No “Big Mick” though.
