As Chinese consumers have become more demanding, new challenges are facing China’s small business. Chinese customers want Western style service in a Western style environment, but at Chinese prices!

So what can small business owners do? Create counterfeit Western stores seems to be the answer!

4. Knock-off McDonalds

This fake McDonalds spotted in China has got the ‘golden arches‘ upside down and the rather strange name “Micheal Along”, which could relate to a the band “Micheal Learns to Rock” who headed the pop charts in China a few years ago for what seemed like an eternity!

3. Numerous Fake KFC’s all over China!

KFC is the undisputed fast food king in China, and all manner of KFC ‘inspired’ clones have hatched all over the place.

However looking at the initials on some of these fake KFC, it would be difficult to tell what fast food, or fast service they may offer!

The staff have nice uniforms and are friendly enough to Jailbreak your iPhone or iPad if you bung them a few 10o Yuan, but their ballsyness knows no bounds when it comes to claiming how ‘official’ they are.

1. Knock-Off Ikea
