Affluent people are also a part of this, but as they’re not in the public eye, the celebrity is the first to inform. Katana and Nick Hawk‘s Koi restaurant have both become iconic with the help of celebrity influence.

If you think about it, it’s really interesting how upscale franchises start out. You may be able to get through the first wave of good press if you invite celebrities to partake in opening events, but to take a restaurant international there has got to be some legitimate appeal to it.

It’s hard to say the the success of Nick Hawk’s (his pseudonym) restaurant has been successful solely on the celebrity clientele. Walking inside any of the locations, and you can see that the rooms were designed to be comfortably dined in. Feng Shui helps the atmosphere, increasing the positive perception of the surroundings.

As it is a restaurant, the food must be good for it to be a success. It would be hard to imagine opening up another branch of a high end restaurant that is notorious for not delivering in the food department.

Perhaps the success of the restaurant has to to with vision. If someone has a clear vision of what their successful restaurant will be like, the odds of it happening increase. Humans notoriously think alike, so if someone feels they understand themselves and the dining experience they want, if they achieved it for themselves they may have achieved it for many others.
