On the other hand there are many "Renegade"
HRC which do not belong to the Rank Group or HRC International.
Nevertheless they use the same logo. Most of them
have been opened before the Rank Group took over the
label. The HRC Frankfurt for instance was the second
HRC after London when it opened in february 1978.
Like many other HRC in the world it does not belong
to the official chain. By now I have visited two of
these HRC. I think that even if they do have a certain
attractivity, they are just not the same. Except for
the logo and some of the merchandise items they have
nothing in common with the "real" HRC. Look
at the photographs and form your own opinion.
