5 reasons to open a chicken restaurant

Is fast food a good idea for a catering business? Yes, especially if you bet on a restaurant serving crispy chicken in a golden coating. How can we be sure that this particular restaurant profile: fast food with chicken is the perfect business idea? Here are 5 reasons why you should open a chicken restaurant:


1. Chicken – the most popular and most frequently chosen meat.

Chicken strips can be enjoyed by everyone – both adults and children. Tasty and nutritious, perfect for a quick, snack as well as a dinner. By opening a chicken restaurant you become unrivalled against restaurants offering pizza or typical fast food bars.

2. Coated chicken can be prepared easily!

Especially if you use a ready-made coating dedicated for catering and coating instructions developed by Holly Powder, a coating and marinade manufacturer. Thanks to high-quality products and practical tips, you will easily and quickly prepare delicious chicken that doesn’t in any way differ from that served by the most popular chain of American-style chicken restaurants.

3. Convenient serving, convenient packaging

You can easily package the coated chicken and the dishes prepared using it and serve it for takeaway. Proper catering packaging is enough.

4. Low investment costs.

To prepare dishes using coated chicken, you only need basic catering equipment. You can serve chicken dishes from a food truck or for takeaway by running a restaurant in the dark kitchen style. The ease of preparation of the dish allows you to choose from a variety of options: fast food restaurant, restaurant, bistro, food hall or maybe cloud kitchen… Chicken will fit any catering business.

5. Using coated chicken as a base, you can create a variety of rich menus.

Burgers, tortillas and wraps, baguettes and toasts, waffles and salads – chicken goes well with any of these dishes.
