[Story here.](https://www.boredpanda.com/first-mcdonald-restaurant-opens-soviet-union-moscow-russia-1990/?utm_source=google&utm_medium=organic&utm_campaign=organic) . At the time of its construction, it was the largest McDonald’s in the world. A venue with 900 seats with a staff of about 600 workers that were carefully selected from 35,000 applicants. A crowd of more than 5,000 Soviet citizens lined up in Pushkinskaya Square before it even opened and about 30,000 customers passed through the door throughout the whole day.
“That wasn’t so much of a problem as we were used to standing in lines for days just to get our monthly ration of sugar and tea”, one customer said.
I read this post while sitting in McDonald’s, eating a quarter pounder with cheese.
/r/communism probably hates this story with a passion that knows no bounds.
Reminiscent of the queues outside the Hard Rock Cafe…
