Ms. Le Thi Toan (50 years old) is both the breadwinner and owner of the restaurant “Bun Bo Ms. Bo” in Go Vap District (HCMC). The restaurant has been open for many years, but most of its revenue comes from customers eating on the spot. After 2 epidemics, she struggled many times because the number of customers coming to the shop was no longer stable.

In the “Promoting 490k Display” program, customers can buy a piece of beef noodle soup with a bottle of soft drink with If it costs 1,000 VND, the order “explodes”. I remember there is a new order every 30 seconds,” she said.

People gradually come because they miss the taste of Bo’s beef noodle soup, not just because of promotions,” she smiled and said she was planning to open more. another shop in district 12.
