Re: Thinking of starting a Fried Chicken Business like KFC

How much research have you done on the topic?

Things to consider:
- Location: Where will you have your EFC (Elodi Fried Chicken)? What is the expected rental cost of the location? Opening hour limitation? Parking? Drive-thru etc
- Staffing costs: Take the number of hours open per week * by the number of staff per hour * 40chf (including uniform and all deductions)
- Unit costs: How much will it cost per item in ingredients?
- Competition: What other offerings are there in the area? MaccyD? BK? Established Imbiss?

You'll quickly find that labour/rental costs will mean your selling price is going to be quite high. Compare the cost of a meal at MaccyD in Switzerland to the UK - take that ratio add 20% because of your lack in buying power and you may come close to the cost here.

Then reduce the market size - and see if you can get the numbers to stack up.
