Any one know a ballpark on how much one costs?
Class of 01, Houston, TX
I'm exploring the idea of importing a chicken restaurant here. Fried chicken is pretty popular in Asia. The big hang up is that you can potentially lose a fair bit of clientele unless your menu is halal.
Church's has shops here but they are re-branded as Texas Chicken. Church's got bought out by an Islamic investment fund a few years back.
There were KFCs all over SE Asia when I was there 12 years ago.
If you're going to do it over there, that's one of the 10 or so cities I'd start in.
Insane economy, "wealthy" (money to spend) people, clean city, etc. can't imagine what the real estate is there, but I'm sure it'd pay for itself.
I had it in mind that there were already a ton of American joints there. Maybe I'm remembering wrong from my time there. Are they all primarily down in that high end shopping area (name slips my mind at the moment)?
