The Villainous Bosses Mentoring System - Chapter 55 - Kaka Cake (3)
Chapter 55: Kaka Cake (3)
So, on the first day He Qingwan launched her new cake, she was shocked by the line of parents, all dragged by their kids to come buy cake.
Among them, at least half were Xi Yun’s classmates.
In front of everyone’s eyes, she took out a sign:
[New product, Sakura Kaka cake, limited to 20 daily]
There was already more than 20 people in line right now!
Facing the customers’ questions, He Qingwan just smiled gently: “I’m sorry, I’m the only working at this store and there’s a limit to my energy. I can only make so many cakes in a day. If I try to make more, the quality will drop. When you all bring it home to eat, it won’t be that delicious. It’s a loss for both sides, so please be understanding.”
The limit of 20 was set by Su Tian. Originally, she wanted to limit it to 10. After all, the cake had Kaka on, which was a lot of extra effort. In the end, He Qingwan upped the limit to 20.
Xi Yun was puzzled by the decision. Even though he was very smart and extremely business-minded, in the end he was still just twelve. It was impossible for him to understand everything about marketing already.
Su Tian explained to him: “If we sell whatever the customer wants to buy, in the beginning, we’ll make a lot of money. But after a while, they’ll start to think ‘Oh, this cake isn’t really that special.’ Then, Kaka will just become an ordinary cake. Right?”
Xi Yun seemed to understand.
Su Tian continued to explain. Although her goal was to avoid Xi Yun’s tragic fate, it would be criminal if she ruined the money-making ability and business sense of the future richest man.
“If it is difficult to buy, people will never get tired of it. This way, Kaka cakes are a specialty, ah. This is hunger marketing.”
Su Tian pinched Xi Yun’s face, smiling: “The most important thing is that making money is not as important as taking care of your body. We can’t let Ms. He be too exhausted can we?”
Xi Yun nodded: “Right, we can’t let Auntie He be tired.”
Su Tian: “So obedient, really good.”
But in the end, they followed what Xi Yun said about the price. A regular cheesecake was 28 yuan, so of course a Kaka cake had to be much more expensive.
The Kaka cake sold for 48 yuan, ah.
However, 5 yuan of each were for Boss Liu.
This could be counted as Boss Liu’s first spin-off product.
Aiyah, after being around Xi Yun for so long, Su Tian felt that some business ability also rubbed off on her.
At Lu Ji’s Peach Crisp, Li Xiuyun’s eyes shook when she saw the price of the Kaka cake.
48 yuan, ah!
She sold her peach crisp at 8 yuan for a pound. Such a small cake, gone in but two bites, was the same price as six pounds of her peach crisp…
She was about to have a heart attack.
“Hai’er’s dad, did you find his number?” She yelled into the room.
“I found it, I found it. It’s here, it’s here.” The man came out with a piece of paper between his fingers.
Li Xiuyun snatched it from his hands, eyeing the other store angrily.
The man advised her: “Xiuyun, forget it. Their business is their business. Our family isn’t too badly off either…”
“Shut your mouth. What do you know, you good-for-nothing.”
The man shut his mouth, quietly going back into the room.
Li Xiuyun was tormented until the evening. When she saw there wasn’t anyone on the road, she snuck over to a phone booth and dialed the number on the note.
“Hey, are you…”
The voice of an elegant and reserved woman sounded out from the phone.
Did she get the wrong number? That didn’t sound like someone who was neurotic.
Li Xiuyun swallowed, before asking: “Are you Liu Kaiyan’s mom?”
“Yes, that’s me. Why’re you asking for Kaiyan?”
The woman’s voice became tense.
Li Xiuyun: “Your son is dating his classmate, Su Tian.”
After saying this one sentence, Li Xiuyun hung up, running away like a rabbit.
As Wang Haoxue’s father came home from outside, he saw her sneaky appearance. When he saw his daughter Wang Haoxue watching TV when he got back, he casually asked: “Girl, isn’t Auntie He’s daughter in your class. Is she dating anyone?”
Wang Haoxue froze: “You know about it?”
“On the way home, I saw Li Xiuyun talking to someone about it on the phone.”
Wang Haoxue froze again: “That crazy woman!”
