This paper explains that fast foods company Makey's Foods has chosen to enter Russia because the industry there is far from mature and still presents great potential for future growth and development. The paper also points out that, other than McDonald's, the limited success of the international fast food brands in Russia can be explained by the multitude of barriers posed by the Russian environment, which are presented in the paper. The paper then analyzes the Russian culture and economy and presents several critical international marketing strategies for expansion.

From the Paper:

"The cultural barriers posed on entrance to Russia are extremely important and the capability to overcome them could actually mean the success of Makey's Foods. A most relevant such barrier is given by language. The official language is Russian and about 100 different languages are being spoken aside from it. The English speaking company has to find a way to address their audience; otherwise, they risk losing their investments in the Russian venture."
