Yao Ming is a legendary center in China and the Chinese basketball player who has achieved the highest achievement in the NBA. Although he
He has not won the NBA championship like Battelle and Sun Yue, but Yao Ming’s influence on Chinese basketball is unprecedented, and being selected into the Hall of Fame is also the best proof. Yao Ming’s personal achievements in the NBA are hard to be compared with the next Chinese
player goes beyond
Yao Ming’s position is very important to the NBA and the Chinese market, so the money brought to him will naturally increase. Just talking about the salary of the Houston Rockets, Yao Ming earned almost 90 million in his 9 years of professional career
In US dollars, it is about 600 million yuan, and everyone knows that the main income of NBA superstar players comes from off-court, and Yao Ming’s uniqueness is better than any player, so Yao Ming was not short of money when he was a player.
With money, some people choose to enjoy, while those with brains naturally choose to invest, because basketball players eat their youth, and once they retire, they will have no income. In terms of investment models in the NBA, except for Kobe, James, and Duran
In addition to these “tycoons”, Yao Ming has also done very well. From the initial investment in sports teams and e-commerce to today’s venture capital companies with great potential, Yao Ming entered the Hurun China Rich List two years ago.
And what I want to tell you today is a restaurant that Yao Ming invested in and opened during his time in Houston: Yao Restaurant!
The opening of Yao Restaurant became popular all over the United States. On the one hand, Yao Ming’s huge influence attracted many Chinese in the United States to go there.
Catchy, there is another important factor, many of Yao Ming’s Houston Rockets teammates frequented, so Yao’s Restaurant naturally became extremely popular, and it was hard to find one!
However, the end of Yao Restaurant was when Yao Ming retired. With Dayao’s retirement, the popularity of Yao Restaurant declined and gradually became deserted.
Many franchise stores have closed, and even a few have been in arrears with rent and utility bills.
There is only one Yao restaurant in Chinatown that is still open, and this is the only Yao restaurant that continues to operate. In order to maintain this restaurant, the taste of the food has also changed drastically, and it has become a taste for Americans.
What’s funny is that occasionally customers come to this Yao restaurant, but they don’t eat, just to take pictures, but Yao restaurant has become a kind of scenic spot
But if you want to say that the closure of Yao Restaurant caused Yao Ming to lose money, this is definitely not possible. Yao Ming and investors have already made enough money, and the closure of Yao Restaurant is just a small part of the investment business map for Yao Ming.
It’s just a black spot, it doesn’t matter.
And now Yao Ming is also extremely smart in business. Because his main focus is on Chinese basketball, Yao Ming and his wife Ye Li are now mainly focusing on venture capital.
Good expansion of the territory of making money
