McDonald’s opens its first outlet in the communist-dominated state of Kerala in the Lulu Shopping Mall, Kochi. Opening its first outlet in the communist-dominated state of Kerala is remarkable because the party there usually treats burgers, along with nefarious drinks like Coca-Cola, as emblems of American cultural imperialism. The Kochi outlet, like all the others, has separate areas in the kitchen for vegetarian and non-vegetarian preparation.

Amit Jatia, vice-president of Hardcastle Restaurants, which has the McDonald’s franchise in south and west India, said he was so pleased with the reaction that he planned to open two more outlets in Kerala later this year. The state consumes about 5,000 tonnes of meat a day, owing partly to the large Christian and Muslim communities.

The new McDonald’s restaurant is in the Lulu Shopping Mall, the biggest mall in India. For the communists, the seven-hectare mall could soon become a no-go zone. Coming soon? Walt Disney and Barbie stores.
