Haidilao Hot Pot (Chinese: 海底捞火锅; pinyin: Hǎidǐlāo huǒguō) is a chain of hot pot restaurants founded in Sichuan Province, China in 1994.[1] The name of the company originates from a mahjong term in Sichuan, haidilao, literally meaning fortune.[2] At an early phase, it was a small shop selling malatang. Later it developed and expanded its menu range. Zhang Yong, who came from a small village in Sichuan, is the CEO of the company.[3] Over the past 16 years, it has owned more than 80 direct marketing stores in Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, Nanjing and many other major cities.
