  11. 11. Interview of Amit Jatia • What is the investment for the 75 to 100 restaurants that you are putting up in two years? It would be Rs 300 crore and we propose to fund that through internal accruals. We also recently raised Rs 180 crore from Arisaig, which would help us in our endeavour to expand our footprint in the west and south of India. We also have the option of raising debt. In short, there are avenues available to us to raise money. 11
  12. 12. Interview of Amit Jatia • Much of your stores are leased. Are you comfortable with this model? Yes. That is the model that we have in place and it has worked for us. We have very few company-owned stores and we do not propose to increase this number. We also have different formats in places such as kiosks, stores located in food courts, malls, high-street locations. It is a mix that we have. 12
  13. 13. Interview of Amit Jatia • Is it easy to maintain price lines when utility and food costs are shooting up? It is a challenge. We are a value brand. So yes, we have to be conscious about price. At the same time, we cannot allow margins to erode. To answer your question, we have to look at price hikes, the frequency of which depends on how much the inflation is biting us. 13
  14. 14. Views • According to Amit Jatia, the forty-year-old entrepreneur who manages the franchise in southern and western India: “Glocalization, in a word. We couldn’t cut and paste business models from other countries, but we needed to bring the McDonald’s brand and its expertise in supply chains and restaurant operations to India, and combine it with local requirements and culture.” 14
  15. 15. Views • At the outset, the Indian partners( Amit Jatia and Vikram Bakshi ) had to convince McDonald’s that to succeed in India, it would need an entirely different menu, low price points, and a highly localized business model. Customer feedback had shown that many Indians would not even enter a restaurant that served beef or pork. • India therefore became the first country in the world where McDonald’s does not offer beef or pork items. Other than fries, beverages, the McChicken sandwich, and the Filet-OFish, there is little in common between a McDonald’s in Bangalore and one in Boston. 15
