Collapsed state[edit]

How to manage this template's visibility

  • Use {{Chicken chains |state=collapsed}} to show this template in its collapsed (i.e. hidden) state.
Use {{Chicken chains |state=expanded}} to show this template in its expanded (i.e. fully visible) state.
Use {{Chicken chains |state=autocollapse}} to show this template in its collapsed state only if there is another template of the same type on the page.
  • Unless set otherwise (see the state parameter within the template's code), the template's default state is "autocollapse".

Usage[edit]

When placing this template on the article pages, please use the following guidelines:

  • Please place the template after any template that is company specific. E.g. in the KFC article the {{Yum!}} template would go first, then this one.
  • When there is another similar template, such as {{Restaurant chains in Ireland}}, place the template that covers the country the company is based in first. E.g. in the KFC article, this template would go second because KFC is based in the United States.

Guidelines for inclusion[edit]

When adding new chains to this template, please follow these guidelines:

  • Global chains are defined as having locations in at least three countries.
  • Regional chains are defined as having locations in a single country, or two adjoining countries, e.g., U.S. and Canada.
    • When adding a two-digit country code after the chain's name, do not include every country the chain operates in. Only include the country the company is based in. E.g. - A chain is based in the UK with locations in Ireland, France and Germany. In this example, you would put [[British Chicken]] (UK) in the template but not [[British Chicken]] (UK, IR, FR, DE)
  • Please do not add chains that have less than a hundred or so locations.
  • This template should only include chains that are national or are in a sizable region of a country. For example, if a chain has only a few locations in a single U.S. state, it should not be included.
  • Please only include chains that have an article on Wikipedia, do not add red links or external links.
