When life gives you lemons (or floods), make lemonade...
 
If your restaurant was hit by floods, normally you'd close up until the floodwaters recede...

But not this restaurant!

The Chao Praya Antique Cafe restaurant is in Thailand, north of Bangkok...

It's been hit by floods... But they decided to keep open as normal!

They're next to the flooded river... and people have been flocking to eat there in the flood...

Patrons enjoy eating their lunch or dinner - ankle-deep or sometimes calf-deep in flood waters!

On The Marketing Side of things - Brilliant
 
Thanks Dien,

I'd like to meet the owner.

Must Be Someone SPECIAL.

Of Course.

In The USA - not possible due to Contamination from flood waters.

Hi Glenn,

My thoughts are the same as yours!

I was thinking to myself... would I eat there?

It depends...

If it was a flood in city streets, probably no - as the flood waters would be full of trash!

But, this is a flooded river... so it would come down to how clean the river waters were...

In the USA, I have a feeling that OSHA (the Occupational Safety and Health Administration) might have a say in the matter! (And in Australia, the OH&S - Occupational Health & Safety - people may have a different idea...)

But... from a marketing point of view, I agree... It's great! :)

People will be able to tell their grandkids about that time in 2021 they had dinner in the flooded restaurant...!

Best wishes,

Dien
