About Yardbird Gourmet Fried Chicken
Yardbird Gourmet Fried Chicken was founded in Zurich, Switzerland in 2017 and since become one of the most popular dining destinations in the city. It’s a family-owned business that was created by the von Matt’s of Von Matt Hospitality Group (VMHG) based in Zurich. Yardbird is one of four restaurant concepts created by VMHG. Their specialization lies in gourmet-style American dining, focusing on serving fantastic menu creations within a vibrant, street-style ambience.
The von Matt’s spent nearly six months traveling The States, learning the ropes of American cuisine. Thereafter, they brought each concept back to Switzerland to combine it with the world-renowned Swiss hospitality and quality standards.
VMHG setup a local headquarters located in Bangkok, Thailand, which will be your liaison and trusted partner throughout the journey of becoming a franchisee.
