Cue Card

There is a family living in front of my apartment. They have their own fast food cafe. They have started that business before five years. Initially, they sold milk only. However, they have nice space in front of the house so got point in mind to open up a cafe. The owner himself has been a good cook and he had been accompanied by his wife in preparation. They have two sons who also helped them in serving and in making. Then gradually they have started taking orders on phone through whats app, sms and calls and started providing free home delivery services. Many old people live in this area so always they find problem with making arrangement of food. So this concept came in mind of owner. These days, many corporate people come here for lunch and snacks too. These shop people always maintain hygienic standards well and make the things in front of us. So the quality of stuffs and ingredients they use that we can see. And they use health friendly stuffs. Sometimes, we may feel that we take better fresh things here than at home. Moreover, they also charge nominally. So its been a small business of that family but they have been very well satisfied and enjoy that business though there has been significant manual labour in that business. All people appreciate their services and quality and hence I believe that business is successful.
