Posted in: Ramen restaurant offers free ramen for the rest of your life for ¥300,000 See in context

This is a really interesting subscription service. But this is too risky to maintain your health, it may cost more.

Cogs rate of ramen is 30%, which means break even for the store is around 1,000 ramen. I suppose people cannot eat the same ramen that much in a lifetime.

We can smile if we want to, we don’t have to smile if we don’t want to.
