How many people are there? I have no idea. But this restaurant is still the most visited McDonald's restaurant in the world.

Conservative communists saw McDonald's as part of American pop culture, a "Western Contagion" that could harm the USSR. They were just a bunch of old freaks... but less than two years after the opening of this restaurant, the Soviet Union ceased to exist as a state.

...30 years later...

There are 189 McDonald's restaurants in Moscow and 750+ throughout Russia.
Also 270 KFC restaurants in Moscow and 900+ throughout Russia.
Also 298 Burger King restaurants in Moscow and 750+ throughout Russia.
Also 117 Subway restaurants in Moscow and 500+ throughout Russia.
and so on
