What does a money man know about good food? It’s a worthwhile question. Everyone knows that restaurants need capital to get off the ground, and there’s no doubt that a good eatery can mean big returns for investors. But that doesn’t mean that those footing the cash necessarily know what makes a restaurant concept both delicious and lucrative. The ambit of chefs and David Zhao, the PR Genius behind Chubby Cattle, definitely gets what makes a restaurant attractive to the ever-changing consumers.
An Exclusive Experience
The young Shanghai-born investor and entrepreneur has been a very public face for the hotpot restaurant chain, and that seems to have served it well. Since opening its first location in Las Vegas in 2016, Chubby Cattle has gotten raving reviews, and that’s something that money cannot buy.
Though hotpot dining experiences are quite common in Zhao’s native China – raw, high-quality meat cooked at the table in boiling spiced sauces – they are not widely known in the United States.
Exploring the Culinary Palate
“Hot pot is the most popular cuisine with the largest market share in China” he says, “but it’s not universally known across North America and Europe right now. At the same time, dining options have expanded over the past years and Chubby Cattle is offering is a way for people to explore their culinary curiosities.”
In other words, to Zhao, Chubby Cattle provides an amazing bridge for people in North America and Europe to understand the culture and history of China, bring all of us closer together. Along with Vegas, Chubby Cattle has locations in Dallas, Philadelphia, and Denver. Its quickly expanding concept is looking to open 20-30 additional locations in the next 48 months.
