Despite high prices and shrunken wallet in this time of recession, one restaurant franchise is seeing an explosive increase in sales. It is the premium meat restaurant Geumsung Hoegwan. This is even more meaningful considering the fact that 41% of self-owned businesses, especially in food, are thinking of closing down within 3 years according to a survey due to poor sales but soaring debts. Yet the number of newly registered franchise is increasing which means that the competition to survive is more intense than ever. 


The premium meat restaurant loved by all ages

Geumsung Hoegwan won Best Meat Restaurant at the 2023 Brand Power Index. Opening the flagship September 2021 in Hapjeong-dong, Seoul, the number jumped to 6 within a year with top performers exceeding 100 million won monthly sales. Some of the reasons are the European style interior, tables for both private and group diners, variety in menu, and above all excellent taste. 


Juicy, tender and generous amount!

You are highly recommended to try the rib dishes. The quality of the meat are all first grade wether beef or pork. You will be surprised by the heavenly taste of the meat that is juicy, tender and also the generous amount. Because they are fire-grilled, the taste is original and savory. The snow flower meat dish especially is a must-try as this pork part is scarce and looks like snow flakes. The seol-hwa-galbi also is worth trying as it is made of 1% neck and 6/7/8 ribs. If you want to visit there for lunch, you are recommended to try a rib meal, a mixed rice or a beef soup rice which will cost you less than 10,000 won.
