Chopstick Restaurant Uses Horse To Save from Delivery Expenses
RESTAURANT USES HORSE – The Chopstick Restaurant in Misamis Oriental is using a horse for food delivery now amid the oil price hike.
The series of oil price increase in the Philippines has affected a lot of people. The first in line are the public utility vehicle (PUV) drivers most especially amid the reduced seating capacity for social distancing. There is also a lesser number of commuters now as many people are under a work-from-home setup and most schools are still not implementing face-to-face classes.
Several transport groups called for help from the government amid their struggles. They even filed a petition seeking the increase of the minimum fare by P3.00 – from P9.00 to P12.00. The government confirmed that they allocated an amount for fuel subsidy of PUV drivers.
Aside from the PUV drivers, private individuals and businesses are also affected by the oil price hike. In Misamis Oriental, a restaurant uses a horse for food delivery.
Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, John Wilfred Hatague, the owner of Chopstick Restaurant, decided to buy a horse to be used for the delivery of ordered foods in nearby areas. He bought the horse for P16,000.00. He is running a family business in Oroquieta City in Misamis Oriental.
Hatague named his horse “Happy”. His cousin who knows horseback-riding is the one who delivers the food using the horse. It saves them from fuel expenses, environment friendly, and Happy also became another attraction in their restaurant.
According to the Chopstick Restaurant owner, the horse is not allowed to run fast because it might damage the food and they only deliver “dry food”. The horseback delivery is only intended for nearby deliveries so Happy will not get very tired. They don’t charge a delivery fee.
