In this paper, the extended LINMAP model developed in (Effanga and Okpara, 2015) is applied to make optimal decision on location of VIP fast food restaurant in Akwa State of Nigeria. The management of the VIP fast food restaurant considered extending their services to five towns (Uyo, Eket, Ikot Ekpene, Oron and Ikot Abasi) in Akwa Ibom State. The attributes considered in the evaluation of the locations are Population, Number of retail outlets, Average family income, Start-up cost, and Taxes. The solution of our model identifies Eket as the best town to operate the business followed by Ikot Abasi, Uyo, Oron and Ikot Ekpene.
