Al Baik is the main broasted chicken food chain in Saudi Arabia. Wikipedia said that the Saudi government has stopped attempts for this very successful fast food chain to grow by limiting what regions of the country it can expand too.
However, the truth about it is yet to be verified without the official announcement from the company itself. The good news is, Al Baik is now open for franchising, as they website says.
So, Al Baik in Manila can be possible but the company said they have started accepting "limited franchising requests". Unless the limits they mention does not remain within the bounds of KSA alone, any willing businessmen and women could always reach them out and apply for franchising and who knows this can be a reality in the future.
You will see men (because maybe women can't stand a situation like this, I guess), young and old, children piling up. They don't seem to mind if they stumble, fall, being pushed and hurt just to make their way to the counter.

Well, we will find out when Al Baik reached Manila. It maybe just rumors but some OFWs especially those who worked in Saudi Arabia cannot wait to have Al Baik in the Philippines.
