Russia is not the country to visit if you love your fast food

After three years of operation in the Russian market, Wendy’s will leave the country and shut down its eight locations due to a change in the local franchisee’s management.

If you are a traveler who loves the ability to get a quick Wendy’s fix abroad, then Russia is not the place for you.

After three years of operation in the Russian market, Wendy’s will leave the country and shut down its eight locations due to a change in the local franchisee’s management.

Wenrus Restaurant group was slated to open 180 Wendy's outlets across by 2020. A It is reported that the new leadership in the company has not expressed interest to expand Wendy’s influence in Russia.

So far, four of the eight locations have been closed.

The closing of Wendy’s follows a slew of other recent mishaps and failure with American fast-food chains in Russia.  Local health inspectors began accusing McDonald's of "wrong-doing." A watch dog agency filed a lawsuit against the American burger chain, and demanded that they remove many of their menu items including cheeseburgers and milkshakes, and have called for McDonald's to shut down.
