Yandex explained the change of the name of the former McDonald’s restaurants on the maps
Moscow restaurants of the former McDonald’s network on Yandex maps were renamed “Mac” by one of the Yandex.Maps business users. According to RBC, this was reported in Yandex, explaining the change in the name of some points.
Business users of “Yandex.Maps” can change cards of the organizations, noted in the company. It is clarified that at the same time, restaurants with the name “McDonald’s” are still displayed in the service.
At the same time, the press service of the former McDonald’s restaurant chain reported that the company asked the service to remove outlets called Mac. “We have sent a request to remove the points, but this will take some time,” the organization said.
It became known earlier on June 10 that some metropolitan restaurants of the former McDonald’s network were renamed “Mak” on Yandex maps. It was, in particular, about establishments that are located in the area of the metro stations “Pushkinskaya” and “Tretyakovskaya”.
Before that, it was reported that the McDonald’s mobile application in Russia changed its name to My Burger. Representatives of Sistema PBO LLC, which manages a chain of fast food restaurants, specified that this name is temporary.
