Korean restaurant plans US expansion

Mad For Garlic, a Korean restaurant chain, plans to take its cuisine into the US and North American markets.

Founded in Korea in 2001, Mad for Garlic’s preparation method of removing the garlic’s pungent smell and ‘unique’ way of cooking Italian cuisine with a Korean twist have won the hearts of both garlic and non-garlic lovers.

Mad For Garlic is known for its menu with garlic-specialised Italian cuisine served in the atmosphere of a medieval European rustic tavern.

“Mad For Garlic is now ready to expand our base of operations to new markets outside Asia,” said CEO and founder Caroline Nam.

To spearhead its North American expansion, Mad For Garlic has partnered with Bridging Culture Worldwide (BCW), a global consulting firm that focuses on Korea facing business ventures.

“Mad For Garlic is currently looking for developers in the US, and we are thrilled to assist in finding the right partners for the brand,” said BCW CEO Don Southerton.
