                                                     Section “C”

                                                   Case Analysis

Read the following case and answer to the given question:

Couple of years ago, when I was back home on summer, KFC and pizza hut had just opened and it was the newest buzz in the capital, Kathmandu. There were pictures in the local newspaper of people lined up out the door to the sidewalk to get a taste of the “fancy” new chain that had just opened. Although, it was only 20 minutes away from where I living, I chose not to participate in it and promised myself that I would never eat in KFC when I am in home. For me, it was simple logic. I did not see the point in eating in a foreign chain restaurant when I could eat in local restaurants that are opened by Nepalese. It was a matter of supporting local restaurant business (and the food taste better and it’s cheaper to eat in local restaurants). KFC did not last long and it was shut down last year. In a way, I was kind of happy due to shut down because I feel that there is no need for more foreign chain restaurant but rather investment in businesses that already exists in the country. KFC and pizza hut were only major fast food chains in Nepal. However, there are many “western” style food restaurant opened by locals.


a) Opening of American food brand in Nepal, was it really worthy?

b) Among western food brand and a local restaurant. Which one do you prefer? Justify it with statement.

c) What are the advantages and disadvantages of fast food chain in context to Nepal?

d) How can we encourage local restaurant to develop business in Nepal?
