McDonald’s Outlets Shut in Sri Lanka Over Poor Hygiene Legal Tussle

Outlets of McDonald’s across Sri Lanka were shut down on Sunday after the US fast-food giant initiated a legal tussle with its local franchise over allegations of poor hygiene.

The Commercial High Court of Colombo ordered the closure of all McDonald’s outlets till April 4, when the parent company alleged that the local franchise holder failed to meet international hygiene standards.

Lawyers for McDonald’s told the court that they had terminated a franchise agreement with local company Abans a week back.

Abans held the franchise of McDonald’s for 12 outlets in Sri Lanka. Notices were put outside McDonald’s outlets in Sri Lanka on Sunday saying they were “closed” without any information about when they will be opened again.
