McDonald's to close 169 outlets in India in franchise battle
(Associated Press) - August 22, 2017 - 7:00pm

NEW DELHI — McDonald's India has announced it will close nearly 170 McDonald's outlets in northern and eastern India after the American fast food giant decided to terminate a franchise agreement with its Indian partner.

McDonald's said its partner Connaught Plaza Restaurants violated the terms of the franchise agreement, including reneging on payment of royalties.

Connaught Plaza Restaurants, which runs 169 McDonald's outlets in northern and eastern India, said yesterday it is considering legal action in the long-drawn legal battle. In June, it shut 43 McDonald's outlets in the capital, New Delhi.

McDonald's said it is looking for a new partner to work with in north India. McDonald's franchises in southern and western India are run by a separate company.
