It provided no details on the supply restrictions and did not say when its 24 outlets could reopen in the nation of 20 million. The company belongs to Kazakh businessman Kairat Boranbayev who was detained in March on embezzlement charges.

Boranbayev was affiliated with the family of former Kazakh president Nursultan Nazarbayev who in January lost his remaining positions of power after falling out with his successor, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, amid violent unrest.
