Are Local Better Than Chain Restaurants?

Local restaurants are better than chain restaurants for a variety of reasons. Chain vs. Franchise. In a chain business, one parent company owns all of the business locations, whereas independent owners operate individual stores in a franchised business concept. With a chain restaurant, one company handles all of the management for the entire business. The main benefits obviously are that the chain businesses can adapt quickly to changing trends and can offer better choices, more value for the customers money, and personalize their visits by getting to know their local clients.

There are variety of other factors that ensure that local customers keep coming back for more!
