According to a DNA report, McDonald’s estranged partner Vikram Bakshi said 16 out of 84 closed outlets in North and East India have reopened after a new logistics firm was roped in even as the fast food major alleged lapses in food quality and safety level by “all facets of the supply chain”. Nearly 84 outlets, mostly in East India and some in North, had to down shutters on Monday after Bakshi-led CPRL’s logistics partner Radhakrishna Foodland discontinued its supply services alleging reduction in volume and non-payment of certain dues, among others. Bakshi, who has roped in a new logistics vendor to resume supply to the affected outlets, however, denied the charges, saying Radhakrishna Foodland in collusion with McDonald’s India is trying to hurt the business and there in no regular payment default. 

Bakshi-led CPRL, the 50:50 joint venture franchise with McDonald’s, runs 169 outlets in North and East India even after the food chain in August terminated the agreement over management issues, among others, saying the termination is illegal and the outlets will run till the courts decide in the matter or there is an amicable solution with McDonald’s India. “The new logistics partner is capable enough of the supply to the restaurants that are affected due to raw material crunch and about 16 outlets have re-opened today,” Bakshi said. “CPRL team is working diligently to have all our outlets re-opened the soonest possible,” he said, hinting that in about a week, all the closed outlets will start operating in full flow.
