Hearing this, everyone was confused.
Xu Que smiled. “You have all come at a good time today. Since today is the first day, you can all have a membership card for only ten million Spirit Stones. Anyone who has a membership card will become a VIP at McDonald’s of Exploding Heavens Faction. You can order anytime you want, and we will provide you with the best service twelve hours per day.”
What?! A membership card that costs ten million Spirit Stones of low quality? You can’t force a high price like this! Since you are a businessman, you should be decent and sensible!
Everyone was speechless.
Just a few moments ago, Xu Que had said that his company was one with integrity. Now he was saying that one could buy a hamburger whenever they liked, on the condition that they had a membership card which would cost ten million Spirit Stones of low quality.
“There is no time for you to hesitate. Follow your hearts and buy the card!” Xu Que shouted.
Hesitate? Follow my heart and buy your card? Shut the f*ck up!
“Remember, the number of membership cards is limited, it will be sold out by the end of the day!”
Hearing this, some people in the crowd decided to buy it.
In particular, the master of Liu family thought he could make some sort of profit from this.
If what the young man said about the burger is true, there will be many people coming to buy it after tomorrow. Since the number of membership cards available is limited, if I have one, I can have the burger earlier than those who do not have the membership card. I can buy a huge amount of them and sell them to others for a higher price. I am sure I can make a huge profit!
“It’s getting late now. In ten seconds, the membership card will no longer be available. Ten, nine, eight, seven…” Xu Que started to count.
All of a sudden, many people became impatient. “Wait, wait, I want one!”
“I am the first one who wanted to buy it. Let me buy first, here are the ten million Spirit Stones of low quality.”
“General Zhuge, I will ask my servant to fetch the Spirit Stones from home.”
Suddenly, some people went back to their stores to fetch money. Some came forward to buy cards, and some hurriedly went back home to retrieve their Spirit Stones.
Most of the people stayed still, feeling rather jealous.
After all, ten million Spirit Stones was a huge sum of money for them. They had no choice but to come here tomorrow morning and buy one.
So far, Xu Que had only managed to sell one burger, but he had obtained over a hundred million Spirit Stones by selling membership cards.
Later, those who had bought membership cards also bought some burgers and french fries.
McDonald’s of Exploding Heavens Faction did not close until late that that night.
Xu Que closed the door of his store and paid a visit to the surrounding stores, while carrying around a hundred million Spirit Stones of low quality with himself.
It would not be difficult to make two billion Spirit Stones with only one McDonald’s of Exploding Heavens Faction, but to make that much money in five days was not an easy thing to do.
In fact, Xu Que never meant to rely solely on one store.
He wanted to establish a commercial kingdom to help him make enough money in a short time. He even had a name for this kingdom, which was ‘Wanda Plaza of Exploding Heavens Faction’.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
“Hey chap, open the door, I have come to check your water-meter… oh, wait, actually I came to ask if you would like to sell your store to me.”
Bang! Bang! Bang!
“Hey, would you like to sell your store to me? I will buy it for a high price.”
Bang! Bang! Bang!
Xu Que spent the whole night walking on the street and paying visits to all the stores along the street, as if he was doing some sort of campaign work.
At last, he spent all the money he had made earlier buying many stores.
Each of the stores cost him around two million. Some stores would be branches of the McDonald’s of Exploding Heavens Faction. As for the rest of the stores, he had bought them simply to make investments.
Compared to people in the Cultivation World, Xu Que who had come from earth knew that investing in real estate would bring huge profits.
He knew that once he transformed the whole street into his commercial kingdom, the price of houses there would definitely roar.
Xu Que happily went back to the palace and rested, without waking anyone else.
He brought a burger and left it out for Buttface. After all, he had promised Buttface that he would treat him to a good meal.
Smelling the aroma, Buttface immediately woke up. He was so moved that he even cried. He promised that he would stick with Xu Que through thick and thin. He then ate the whole burger in one bite, as if he was afraid that Xu Que would take it away.
“Loser!” Xu Que went back to his room and slept.
The next day, in front of the McDonald’s of Exploding Heavens Faction, huge number of people were standing in line.
Countless noblemen of the Imperial City had all gathered in front of the store after hearing about the hamburgers and french fries. Some people from the influential factions had come too.
As time passed, more and more people came. Soon, people filled the whole street.
Some people even wanted to buy places earlier in line, but no one was willing to sell their place.
“What’s going on? Why on earth there are so many powerful and influential people here?” A random man was surprised when he saw this scene.
“They have come to wait for General Zhuge to open his store and buy his burgers and french fries.”
“F*ck! What’s really going on?”
“You know the master of the Liu family, right? He had been stuck at level 2 of the Infant Transformation Stage for almost thirty years, but amazingly, he reached the next level after eating the burger. This burger only costs five hundred thousand Spirit Stones of low quality.”
“No way! This cannot be true!”
“If I am lying, then why are there so many people waiting to buy the hamburger?”
“I must go back and report this to my master.”
Soon, the news spread throughout the whole Imperial City, and people came out from all areas.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
The soldiers of the Snow City who were inside the store woke up at last, and were stunned by the crowd that greeted them when they opened the door.
“This is General Zhuge’s store! Have you people come to loot?” a soldier asked.
“No, no, no. we have come to buy the burger!”
“I have come for the french fries.”
“I want a Grilled Chicken Burger.”
“I want three Grilled Chicken Burgers.”
“Please sell one hamburger to me, I have got both my old parents and my children to feed.”
Hearing this, the soldiers felt relieved. “Fine, stand in line. If anyone tries to cut in line, we will shut the door.”
“Do not worry, we will behave ourselves.”
“If anyone dares to cut in line, I will kill him.”
“Yes, kill him!”
