According to Goncharov, Teremok is going to launch an order system through smartphones.
Вообще доля «конкурентов» как вы сказали 5% рынка. Остальные 95% проще не замечать ? И мы никуда не торопимся. Я был в тестовом маке с панелями в 2008 года в провинции баварии. Запустили через 5-7 лет. Тоже видимо лохи были, да ?
