MHP, Ukraine's largest poultry producer, has launched a new fast food chain, opening a new restaurant in downtown Kiev.
Located at 114 Chervonoarmiyska Street, the first Kryla (Wings) restaurant offers 240 square meters and seating about 70 people. The new facility is located at Spasskaya Street, 5 near the tube station Kontraktova Square. Opening of the next restaurant at Khreshatic Street is planned for the end of August - early September. Two more openings are planned on Horkovo and Spaska Streets.
Named after the wings of chickens, the Kryla restaurants are designed with an aviation and airport theme.
Kryla is not the first domestic fast-food chain. But given that it is closely affiliated with Ukraine's largest poultry producer, it stands a chance of developing into a formidable competitor for international fast-food chains such as McDonalds that long ago entered Ukraine, or others that are eyeing the market.
