South Korea’s Crispy Chicken n’ Tomato expands in Japan

South Korean chicken chain Crispy Chicken n’ Tomato has expanded its retail network into Tokyo, opening 10 stores in the city this month.

Besides selling at stores, Crispy Chicken n’ Tomato has also partnered with UberEats to offer “sharing brand service” which allows one store on UberEats to bear two brands at the same time.

The company introduces this type of business as unlike franchises, owners do not need to change interiors, uniforms, equipment or their existing menu.

“We are looking for restaurant partners and agencies that want to secure new profits”, said a spokesperson.
