Nearly 84 outlets, mostly in east India and some in the north, including Delhi, had to shut down on December 25 after Bakshi-led CPRL's logistics partner Radhakrishna Foodland discontinued its supply services, alleging reduction in volume and non-payment of certain dues, among others.
Mr Bakshi had on December 28 opened 16 outlets with the supply from the new logistics partner.
"Another 16 outlets have re-opened in Delhi and NCR as of now and more will open very soon," Mr Bakshi told PTI.
McDonald's India has, however, alleged lapses in food quality and safety level by "all facets of the supply chain" saying the new distribution centre is not approved by it and post termination of franchise pact with CPRL, it has not been able to verify if the outlets are complying with applicable McDonald's food safety, supply and operations standards.
Mr Bakshi had earlier hit back saying the US-based food chain follows "different standards" for India compared to other countries and continuously ignored the food quality concerns raised by him for the past four years.
Both the parties are fighting the battle at various courts, including the NCLT and the Delhi High Court as also the London Court of Arbitration.
The major tussle started after Mr Bakshi was ousted as the MD of Connaught Plaza Restaurants (CPRL) in 2013, following which he approached the NCLT, which reinstated him to his position. McDonald's has challenged the same in the appellate tribunal NCLAT.
On the other hand, Mr Bakshi has challenged termination of the franchise agreement and both the parties are fighting it out at the respective courts.
Meanwhile, the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA) has asked Mr Bakshi to sell his stake in the JV firm CPRL to McDonald's, which is pending at the Delhi High Court.
