McDonald's new brand name in Russia could be Fun and Tasty

McDonald's in Russia has registered possible brand names for the firm taking over its fast-food restaurants there, including "Fun and Tasty" and "The Same One," patent filings showed on Friday.

The company said on Friday that the trademarks registered with Russia's Rospatent agency, from which it ultimately planned to choose one brand, also included "Just Like That" and "Open Checkout."

The world's largest burger chain has nearly 850 restaurants in Russia, and it's selling those stores to local licensee Alexander Govor, who runs an operation of 25 restaurants. Govor will operate the brand under a new name in Russia.
