“There is a great opportunity to vegetarian restaurants since many Indians are vegetarians . So far, India is a very small market, we only have 271 restaurants in India and around the world, we have about 33 000, ” Maini said.
The first local McDonald’s plans to open will be located in Amritsar, close to the Golden Temple in northern India, and projected a second restaurant in the town of Katra, in Kashmir.
The menu of the restaurants that the chain has in India now offers many vegetarian dishes on their menu. About 50% of the dishes are not prepared meat, although the country’s signature dish is the McAloo Tikki Burger, having a meat filling.
