Marrybrown opens first outlet in Myanmar

marrybrownMalaysian fast-food chain Marrybrown, known for its halal fried chicken, burgers and finger food, has opened its first restaurant in Myanmar on June 28. The Yangon store will kick off an expansion of Marrybrown in Myanmar to 16 outlets in 5 years, the company’s business development manager Joshua Liew was quoted as saying by Malaysia’s The Star newspaper.

Marrybrown is now the first foreign fast-food chain operating in Myanmar: Other chains, namely McDonald’s and Kentucky Fried Chicken, are still exploring a roll-out in Myanmar. US-coffee house chain Starbucks also has Myanmar on its radar.

However, apart from some local brands, the fast-food segment in Myanmar remains still largely untapped. Economist cite high property rents and a still weak purchasing power of locals as the main issues.

Meanwhile, Marrybrown said it wants to expand its presence in southern Thailand and also venture into Jordan and Turkey. Currently and apart from Malaysia and Thailand, it operates restaurants in China, Indonesia, India, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Tanzania, the UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia and Azerbaijan. Altogether, the chain has over 350 outlets.
