Re: Thinking of starting a Fried Chicken Business like KFC

Yes I would be your customer!
But looking at how many great fastfood chains are missing in Switzerland and how many food stores have been closed or taken over in the past decade, I would suspect that business here works, hmmm, slightly different from the rest of Europe. I have no idea what those hidden reasons are, but you have to understand them before investing anything.

Why should it only be business?

Perhaps Swiss people don't feel the need to gorge themselves on unhealthy junk food and like their own type of food more?

It's not just junk food as there is a not exactly an abundance of restaurants of other cuisines too.

I'm not saying this is all a bad thing as Switzerland doesn't appear to have as much of an obesity problem as other European countries.

Junk food is going down the same path as the dinosaurs....

Re: Thinking of starting a Fried Chicken Business like KFC

There are three KFS´s in CH at the moment and all are on or near the borders. I seem to remember that the problems KFC had or has in CH has something to do with the import of Halal chickens.
CH said: "No way Jose!"
KFC said: "Ok, screw you!"


Or at least something along those lines.

Re: Thinking of starting a Fried Chicken Business like KFC

There is a place in St Gallen Bahnhof called Chickeria, seems very similar to KFC

Re: Thinking of starting a Fried Chicken Business like KFC

If you do open (or eat at) a place like that, please make sure that your suppliers respect animal welfare:

https://www.independent.co.uk/voices...-a8219646.html

some birds were so lame and deformed they could only “drag themselves to the food and water troughs by their wings”

others “stood motionless, too dazed or dying to move”

were documented tearing the heads off live birds

booted workers jumped on live chickens

92 per cent of chicken is contaminated with faecal matter

chicken outlets keep all this suffering hidden from you
