Goodbye Fat Chow?

Recommended Posts

Just saw this notice on the door of Fat Chow yesterday:

The Thai says "Business Lease", which implies that the business is for sale before it has even fully opened!

Fat Chow never did, did it?

That's a fair statement. We've done very well in The Night Bazaar with The Duke's for 11 or so years. It's all about the location. Fat Chow will do well as does all the other restaurants around when there are people. Thanks for the clarification.

Incredibly, a new Dukes has opened this week up near Meechok Plaza on the middle ring road.

I don't know about in this case, but เซ้งกิจการ often means something more like, "Take over the existing business," rather than just "for lease." The idea being that the place has an existing name and clientele, along with all the equipment to more or less hit the ground running. 

Fat Chow has no name value or existing clientele as it never really opened. 

Another property with the the same "Take over" potential is Western House just down from Meechok Plaza across the street from the Caltex station. They, for contrast, do have name recognition and established clientele. 

 

I assume, although just speculation, that the Fat Chow location, if for sale, could be gutted and turned into a bubble bath spa if the buyer wanted to, right?

"It's all about location"

 

I think someone is confusing the restaurant business with real estate business (location, location, location)

Where?  In the center or on the road close by?

About 800 m up from Meechok Plaza (counterclockwise on the ring road and on the right). I live about a kilometer from there and went by late this afternoon. Many people, mostly Thai. Very strange. The Dukes guy did not even mention it above. Who would open a fairly high-priced place NOW? Is it a franchise or something? I dont know. Fine with me though. I have always liked Dukes a lot, but it was a inconvenient trip for me to get over to Maya or Promenada. I have not eaten there yet but will in the next couple of days.

I'm guessing the Promenada location will be the next to close. I can't imagine business is very good there especially since immigration is no longer there.

Immigration recently opened there.  Did they close again?  I don’t think so.
