“We have been compelled to take this step because CPRL has materially breached the terms of the respective franchise agreement relating to affected restaurants and has failed to remedy the breaches, despite being provided with an opportunity to do so in accordance with the agreements,” McDonald’s India said.
McDonald’s in north and east India run by Connaught Plaza Restaurant Ltd (CPRL) and said the outlets cannot use its brand for any operations.
CPRL is led by Vikram Bakshi, the estranged partner of the US-based food chain giant.
The decision comes weeks after 43 outlets run by CPRL in the national capital were shut due to non-renewal of eating house licenses by local’s authorities.
As part of the termination, CPRL is ceased to use McDonalds’s name, system, trademark, designs and its associated intellectual property, among others within 15 days of the termination notice.
McDonald’s India further said that it is “committed to finding the right ‘developmental licensee partner’ for north and east India and taking steps to do so”.
