Tijuana Baja California Mexico

Daniel asks…

Which companies are the biggest rivals of McDonald’s?

Thanks.

Tijuana answers:

Yum brands (Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, KFC, Long John Silver, and A&W) is actually has more locations than McDonalds. Subway now has almost as many locations. But McDonalds has much more revenue than either company.
In America most competition is from so called “fast-casual” franchises. The population is older and they don’t want as much take-out. You are just as likely to eat in a “fast casual” place as you are to pick it up in a car and take it home. None of these places has anywhere near the number of locations as McDonald’s but collectively they are making a dent. Here’s a list of “fast-casual” chains:

* Atlanta Bread Company
* Au Bon Pain
* Back Yard Burgers
* Baja Fresh
* Boston Market
* Bruegger’s
* California Tortilla
* Charley’s Grilled Subs
* Chicken Out Rotisserie
* Chipotle Mexican Grill
* CiCi’s Pizza
* Corner Bakery Cafe
* Cosi
* Culver’s
* Daphne’s Greek Cafe
* Donatos Pizza
* Einstein Bros. Bagels
* Fazoli’s
* Firehouse Subs
* Five Guys Burgers & Fries
* Freebirds
* Fuddruckers
* Jamburritos “Cajun Grille”
* Jason’s Deli
* Jerry’s Subs & Pizza
* Jimmy John’s
* La Salsa
* Mama Fu’s Asian House
* McAlister’s Deli
* Moe’s Southwest Grill
* Noodles & Company
* Panda Express
* Panera Bread
* Pei Wei Asian Diner
* Penn Station
* Pick Up Stix
* Pollo Campero
* Portillo’s
* Potbelly Sandwich Works
* Qdoba Mexican Grill
* Rasta Taco
* Rubio’s Fresh Mexican Grill
* Schlotzsky’s
* Skyline Chili
* Spicy Pickle
* Starbucks
* Sushi Runner
* Taco John’s
* Tijuana Flats
* Vapiano
* Wingstop
* Zankou Chicken
* Zaxby’s

Since there is a lot of cultural resistance to fast food in Latin America and Europe, most fast food places are expanding in the urban areas of Asia, especially China.

==========
Personally, I kind of like it in Mexico where a lot of people open up tiny restaurants or stands with home cooked meals. I know that sanitation can never be as uniform, but eating out is much more unique. You can never find good crickets fried in chili, ant eggs, pig skin, crocodiles or goat soup in this country.

Why are Alienware Aurora R-3 desktop computers manufactured at Pce Technology De Juárez in Chihuahua, Mexico?

Tijuana answers:

I was both in Cuidad Juarez, Chihuahua and Tijuana, Baja California; and both have alot of Maquiladoras (manufacturing plants) scattered around the two cities. I even saw Samsung and Kyocera when I was in Tijuana; and Electrolux (vacuums & stoves) in Cuidad Juarez.
