I remember that 2 years ago, they only had one business in our city. It quickly became one of the favorite spots for the youth to get together. Now they have expanded with franchises [5] in almost every corner of my city. The fame of X has spread by word of mouth[6] and in my case, a friend told me about it.

The owner of the chain is a young woman, who is only 31 years old. Since I have always been interested in opening up a small café/restaurant of my own, I admire her work a lot. She has successfully created a brand name[7] for real food, in the modern era. Every time I have visited this restaurant, it has always been full and this applies to all other locations in our city.

Recently, the group announced that it had raised a 5.5 million-dollar investment[8] from overseas funds. This proves that X could be considered to have great potential in developing further and becoming more successful in the future.
