McDonald's said on Friday it has signed an agreement with Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd to open restaurants at the latter's retail outlets in Kolkata and Delhi.

"The tie-up is in line with our strategy to expand across all our restaurant formats, including High Street, Highway and Drive Thru," McDonald's India MD and JVP (North and East) Vikram Bakshi said in a statement.

Under the pan India agreement, McDonald's will open 'Full scale' and 'Free standing with Drive Thru' restaurants at select HPCL's retail outlets in the two cities, the statement said, adding the arrangement would be replicated in other cities in due course.

"As part of HPCL's retail strategy, a customercentric Retail Value Proposition has been developed and it is centered around creating customer pull by providing differentiated offers at the outlets," HPCL ED-Retail S P Chaudhry said.
