Chinese restaurant chains in the USA have been growing in popularity since the early 20th century, when they first began to appear in America. In the early years, there was no take-out culture and Chinese immigrants gained employment throughout American cities. They later opened restaurants that provided delivery and take-away food.

The first revival in Chinese cuisine throughout China in the United States occurred during the 1960s, specifically in cities that had significant Chinese populations.

The famous ‘Mr. Chop Suey’ dinner was recreated at New York by Michael Tong who was a restaurateur. This increased the demand for Chinese food led to the passing of 1965’s Immigration Reform Act, which ended the racist quota system.

The third renaissance in American Chinese cuisine can be linked through the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act, which specifically banned Chinese laborers of being U.S. citizens. During this era, American Jews were given merchant status, which gave the right to travel to China and also bring back their employees from their home country. As a result, numerous restaurants opened in the early 1900s, and according to MIT Law professor Heather Lee, the number of Chinese restaurants in the U.S. doubled from 1910 to 1920.
