A recent survey indicated that more than 400 million Chinese people are using Wechat as a payment method, among other online payment channels and more smart business solutions for the food service industry are being actively developed. We hope to deepen our cooperation with technology providers to utilize O2O, big data analysis and customer relation management fields to expand our customer base with the goal of providing an enhanced dining experience to customers while also optimizing our operating efficiency. Additionally, we hope to expand Wechat payment to our stores in Sichuan and other areas in the following months."
