A well-known local Pattaya reporter is selling fried chicken on a golf cart which is starting from 30 baht during the Covid – 19 pandemic.
Mr. Wichian Sangkaew is the local Chonburi reporter for the popular Channel 7 television and Thai media network. He is a well-known reporter in Chonburi and maintains a friendly relationship with The Pattaya News. (Disclosure-The Pattaya News is NOT associated with the food cart and does not profit from any sales, this article is purely to inform people of the cart.)
He told The Pattaya News, “Before the Covid – 19 pandemic, I operated a restaurant on Pattaya Third Road.”
“Unfortunately, in this pandemic, I have lost many of my customers and overhead is extremely high at this time. So I had to stop the restaurant business.” Wichian stated to the Pattaya News.
“I decided to do a street food cart instead as my chef, who also worked with me at my restaurant, is well known for their chicken recipes and they have been in high demand. We decided a mobile cart focusing on the chicken would be the best approach during this current period. We also wanted to keep prices low as we know many people are struggling financially in Pattaya at this time.” Wichian added.
“Our menu starts from 30 baht. This month we are at the entrance to Soi Siam Country Club Pattaya from 4:00 P.M. to 10:00 P.M. every day.”
“We also have a delivery service which charges only a 20 baht fee for not more than a 10 kilometers delivery. Any purchase over 90 baht is free within 5 kilometers.
“Visit us in Facebook ‘ไก่ทอดตะมุตะมิ๊ พัทยา’ or call us at 081-455 6830.” Wichian concluded.
Wichian still is involved in the news industry and well regarded locally in addition to his food business. Although not covered as often as other news, parts of the press industry have also taken a major financial hit due to Covid-19 as “brick and mortar” customers and advertisers have significantly scaled back funds and advertisements due to lack of customers, border restrictions, and other measures. This has led to many finding alternative ways of earning a living and income to supplement the reduced income from primary jobs until the situation begins to return to normality, hopefully, later in the fiscal year.
