Burger lovers who had missed the delicacies all these days due to the closure of McDonald’s in New Friends’ Colony Community Centre, the good news for them is that now they can have a bite of their favourite aloo tikki as the outlet has reopened.
It is not known whether it is going to work under a new management, but there is jubilation among some Jamia Millia Islamia students and Okhlaiites who were regular at this outlet. “I just visited the CC and was surprised to see the McDonald’s open. The first thing came to my mind was my favourite burger. The crowed inside was thin as many people are not aware of it. It is understood that in coming days things might improve as words spread in the locality about the reopening of the outlet,” said a Jamia student Arif.
Months ago reports had been published pointing out that as many as 43 of the 55 outlets belonging to the American fast food chain in Delhi suspended their operations temporarily after its North and East India licensee failed to renew eating-house permits.
“The eating-house licenses of a number of McDonald’s restaurants in Delhi have expired. The CPRL board is working towards obtaining the required permits. Pending this, the CPRL is temporarily suspending operations at the affected restaurants,” a statement issued by the McDonald’s India Pvt Ltd (MIPL) had read then as reported by HT.
