126 McDonald's outlets in north, east still open: Bakshi

McDonald's estranged partner Vikram Bakshi has claimed that 126 outlets in north and east India still continue to operate fully even as the US-based fast food chain said it was taking action to enforce cancellation of its franchise licence.

The group is still operating the outlets in Gurugram, Kolkata, Durgapur and Lucknow operated by Connaught Plaza Restaurant Ltd (CPRL).

"Apart from the 43 outlets that are shut for some time, the remaining are open and operating,” shared Bakshi.

There has been uncertainty over the fate of McDonald's outlets operated by CPRL after McDonald's India sent a termination of notice to CPRL last month. McDonald's India had given time till September 5 to CPRL to operate, post which it said the franchise was barred from using McDonald's brand, trademark, and its associated intellectual property, among others.

CPRL runs a total of 169 outlets in north and east India, out of which 43 were shut down in June after expiry of eating house license.
