Homestead Chicken, 1973 (2nd of 2)

Homestead Chicken, 1973

Homestead Chicken was a New Zealand-owned fast food chain which operated in the 1970s and 1980s. It was a local rival to the American franchise Kentucky Fried Chicken. The business environment was very competitive and local chains like Homestead found the going tough – it went into receivership in 1989 and all the outlets closed.
