On the second and third day since the promotion, he prepared 40 whole chickens and it was sold out by 11a.m. and 1p.m. respectively. Staring day 4, he will be preparing only 30 whole chickens and they were all sold out by the after noon as usual.

There were customers which queue as early as 7a.m. just to enjoy a value for money chicken rice.

The boss said that this move is not conventionally used to increase earnings and he can only breakeven by paying off salaries of 4 employees if he sell 30 whole chickens everyday.

He initially intend to end this promotion on 31 December 2020, however, looking that he can breakeven with this model, he might be extending this promotion!
