There was a buzz that McDonalds will be coming up at Empress Mall near Gandhi Sagar lake, but soon all the air settled down.
The big ticket size and need for daily quantum of business were cited as reasons behind McDonald’s reluctance to offer franchise in Nagpur.
Commenting on the scenario Jayesh Bagde, CEO of Panino Foods India Pvt Ltd, told, “Actually McDonald require a huge business proportions in the form of orders intake. This could roughly accounts for a daily counter of Rs 2 to Rs 2.5 lakh, against the existing players.” Panino is yet another upmarket fast food chain in Nagpur having outlets at various locations in city.
