BBQ Chicken Reverses Decision to Raise Prices


Korean chicken franchise BBQ Chicken has decided not to raise its prices, reversing its course after authorities discouraged the move.

BBQ was expected to raise prices by 9 to 10% starting next week on its main chicken dishes due to rising prices of chickens because of the recent AI outbreak.

However, the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Livestock announced that it was unfair for consumers to bear the burden of the outbreak and they would forward their complaint to the National Tax Office and the Fair Trade Commission.

BBQ Genesis vice chairman Kim Tae-cheon announced that the franchise will cooperate with the governments decision to stabilize the price of food.
