Restaurants on wheels cater to rural banquets in Jiangxi

Xinhua | Updated: 2018-03-23 08:47

Mobile restaurants are now a big hit in East China's Jiangxi province.

Liu Shaojun, a former carpenter in Jiangxi, is well known for his venture.

"My restaurant has wheels," says Liu. "I drive it to wherever I am needed."

"All the customers have to do is tell me what they want and the number of guests," says Liu. "We offer everything, from setting up tables to cleaning up afterwards."

Rural people often hold banquets, but preparing for such feasts can be quite frustrating.

Traditionally, hosts have to ask others for help in buying food, cooking, serving, washing up, and even for tables, chairs, bowls and chopsticks.

"The process is time-consuming and labor-intensive," says Liu. "But my restaurant makes things easy."

If a customer wants to use Liu's tables, chairs, bowls and chopsticks for a banquet, the fee is only 300 yuan ($47).

"We also offer suggestions on the amount of food based on the number of people attending, which can prevent food from being wasted," he says.

In Xinyu, in Jiangxi province, such restaurants are now quite common.

Hu Yougen from the Luofang township held two banquets last year. And mobile restaurants catered for each banquet of 30 tables.

The banquets saved Hu a lot of money and were praised by the guests.

Fu Xin, a local government official, lauded the concept, saying that they can reduce waste.

As for Hu, he says: "I would definitely choose such a service again."
