McDonald’s to Allow Franchises in Russia
McDonald’s is widening its franchise operations in Russia to drive expansion deeper into provincial areas as rival international restaurant chains flock to the growing market.

The fast-food chain, which has run its own outlets since launching in Russia in 1990, is lining up more partners after last year picking Russia’s largest restaurant holding company Rosinter ROST.MM as its first franchisee.

“Beyond the Urals, we are interested in Western and Eastern Siberia, and we are also considering franchising out restaurants in (Russia’s western) enclave of Kaliningrad,” says Russia CEO Khamzat Khasbulatov.
 
Verizon to Acquire Tracfone
Verizon says that it has entered into an agreement with America Movil to acquire Tracfone, a pre-paid mobile provider in the U.S.

Tracfone is the largest reseller of wireless services in the US, serving approximately 21 million subscribers through a network of over 90,000 retail locations nationwide. A longtime partner of Verizon, more than 13 million Tracfone subscribers currently rely on Verizon’s wireless network through an existing wholesale agreement.

“This transaction is aligned with what we do best: providing reliable wireless service alongside a best-in-class customer experience,” says Hans Vestberg, Chairman and CEO of Verizon. “We are pursuing this important strategic acquisition from a position of strength given our very strong and prudent financial profile.”
