McFoxy – the McDonalds knockoff

On my visit to Kyiv I found an interesting local fast food chain – McFoxy.

Best described as a McDonalds knockoff, they served burgers, chips and drinks.

The real McDonald’s opened their first restaurant in Ukraine in 1997.

With McFoxy’s most famous location being outside Kiev’s main railway station, right next door to a real McDonald’s.

Established in 2009, McFoxy expanded to include 10 restaurants across six cities – Kyiv, Zaporizhia, Sumy, Khmelnytsky, Kropyvnytsky and Dnipro – until tax evasion charges saw the chain shut down in 2016.
