New Delhi: Connaught Plaza Restaurants Private Ltd (CRPL), now wholly-owned by foodservice retailer McDonald’s, has re-opened 13 of its restaurants in Delhi starting 11 a.m on Sunday, a statement by McDonald’s said.
These are the first the company restaurants to be reopened after the ownership of CRPL changed hands on May 9. McDonald’s acquired Connaught Plaza Restaurants as the US-based major completed a settlement reached with former joint venture partner Vikram Bakshi.
The acquisition ended a dispute between the company and its joint venture partner with whom the former had formed CPRL, which managed the 165 outlets of the company in the north and east India. The reopened restaurants would provide “more customized” hospitality, “refreshed” menu boards, merchandising and packaging, said the statement. The restaurants opened on Sunday include those at the Terminal-3 of the Indira Gandhi International Aiport, Connaught Place, and Nehru Place, it said. (IANS)
