Restaurant chains that have already closed in China

Chinese restaurant chains have already shuttered their doors in China, and some restaurant owners have even taken to social media to urge customers to return to their home countries.

In the wake of the nation’s food safety problems, China’s government has been cracking down on food imports from abroad, with restrictions increasing nationwide.

Chinese authorities have even started restricting Chinese imports of foreign food items, like rice and beef, which is the country’s main source of protein.

As a result, Chinese restaurants have been forced to close, with some resorting to illegal actions, such as selling fake menus to lure customers back to their countries.

The restaurant closures have prompted fears that China’s food supply chain is collapsing and has pushed many restaurants out of business, according to Bloomberg.

“If I am not careful, I will have to leave my home country,” said Wang Lijian, a 37-year-old restaurateur in Hebei province, according for the Chinese newspaper Caixin.

“There are some people who have decided to travel to Thailand to start a restaurant, but they can’t afford to go back home and they have to sell their wares online.

I have lost a lot of business because of this,” Wang said.

Wang has already closed his restaurant, a popular seafood restaurant, after being contacted by a customer.

“I had no idea what to do, but I was shocked by the response I got,” Wang told Bloomberg.

Reuters/Carlos BarriaA restaurant owner in Shenzhen told Bloomberg that he’s planning to open another restaurant in China after being unable to find a new location.

He’s already sold his other two locations and is now planning to reopen the restaurant in a new area.

Wang, however, has no plans to open a new restaurant in Shenzen, so he’s considering relocating to Vietnam.

“We’re not planning to leave China anytime soon, but we will consider staying if we can,” Wang wrote on his Sina Weibo account.

“We’ve had to sell our wares for the last few years and can’t get the same income.”

In the aftermath of the food safety scandals, Chinese authorities are ramping up efforts to control food imports.

Some have even banned Chinese imports from foreign countries, such to Russia and Japan.
