The Glovo delivery service faced problems just 15 minutes after U.S. fast food giant McDonald’s reopened three restaurants in the Ukrainian capital city of Kyiv on Sept. 20.

According to the Khmarochos media outlet, the Glovo service simply ran out of couriers, as Ukrainians, deprived of the famous U.S. fast food for months, swamped it with orders.

The Glovo app stopped displaying the restaurant’s menu due to high demand. There are also difficulties with other restaurant orders.

The first three restaurants reopened at 3V Bazhana Avenue, 7 Hryshka Str., and 2A Haharina Avenue in Kyiv. At first, the establishments will be open for delivery only, with indoor seating, express windows and McDrive reopening in October.

The rest of the restaurants will reopen in the capital city and in various cities in the west of the country over the time.

McDonald’s announced on Aug. 11 that it plans to reopen its restaurants in Ukraine over the next few months.

The company closed all its restaurants in Ukraine on Feb. 24 following Russia’s full-scale invasion of the country.
