Collapsed state[edit]

Initial visibility: currently defaults to autocollapse

To set this template's initial visibility, the |state= parameter may be used:

  • |state=collapsed: {{Chicken chains|state=collapsed}} to show the template collapsed, i.e., hidden apart from its title bar
  • |state=expanded: {{Chicken chains|state=expanded}} to show the template expanded, i.e., fully visible
  • |state=autocollapse: {{Chicken chains|state=autocollapse}}
    • shows the template collapsed to the title bar if there is a {{navbar}}, a {{sidebar}}, or some other table on the page with the collapsible attribute
    • shows the template in its expanded state if there are no other collapsible items on the page

If the |state= parameter in the template on this page is not set, the template's initial visibility is taken from the |default= parameter in the Collapsible option template. For the template on this page, that currently evaluates to autocollapse.


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.
