UKRAINIAN BURGER KING REPLACES SOVIET-STYLE “BRING YOUR OWN FOOD’ RESTAURANTS

February 22, 2010

Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko was upbeat for the ribbon cutting ceremony for his countries first Burger King.

“This is a proud moment for all Ukrainians.’ he exclaimed.

The emergence of chain burger restaurant will phase out the old Soviet-style restaurants which required citizens to supply their own food, cooking utensils, and stoves.

“Basically, the Soviet restaurants were simply windowless concrete rooms with some tables.  But never enough chairs.” said Yushchenko. “The name ‘Burger King’ also has a nice ring to it.  Much finer than “Feeding Establishment 14-A’ as we had during Soviet rule.  It’s also nice that food is provided at the restaurant.’
