Russia's Rebranded 'McDonald's' Restaurants Look Very Familiar

When we see a fast food restaurant in a foreign country, we immediately assume the food will be better. It’s sad that countries abroad get different menu options than we do in the states. If you’re a fan of seeing what’s on their menus, we’ve got the post for you.

In a TikTok video, content creator @tomfromtx shared footage of a rebranded McDonald’s in Russia. The changes are apparent, but there is still a hint of familiarity in the restaurant. Hmm, let’s see what’s on the menu.

The exterior of the building is still the same. There is even a large M on the outside. The menu options have been renamed. The Big Mac is now the Big Special. The Quarter Pounder is now the Grand Deluxe. But they also offer items we don’t have in the states. Those items include ciabatta, croissant, and quiche. Now that’s a fancy upgrade for a rebranded McDonald’s. But here’s the kicker. They’re still using the McDonald’s brand sauces and blacking out the label with a marker. We hope they have a better solution once those sauces expire.

Let’s see how the TikTok community responded. User @rico19 wrote, “So basically, it’s McDonald’s hiding in a different brand.” @Romanian Catholic joked, “They didn't even try.” @Ǝ revealed, “You know it’s McDonald’s when you hear the beeping inside.” @Knight admitted, “It actually looks better.” @Liya revealed, “We still call it McDonald’s even if they changed the brand name.” @canewton88 remarked, “’Tasty and that’s it’ sounds so aggressive to me. LOL.”

Given everything that is happening in Russia, the rebranding of McDonald’s doesn’t seem too bad. The menu options look delicious. We couldn’t ask for me more than that.
