She was a fashion designer, so her career path had always been targeted at women. Thus, if she found that the women in this era had sufficient purchasing power, didn’t that mean that she could start designing clothes, jewelry, and so on? If it could also be a profitable business then, of course, she wouldn’t let it go.
The high-end market had always been Su Tang’s ultimate target. After all, even in the cooperation she discussed with Luo Xingchen before, she included her plans to create a brand, which was her best way to target the high-end market.
After all, the things produced by her space were all unusual, so she certainly couldn’t just take them out and sell them like common goods, right? If you took a seed from her space and planted it outside, the resulting plant would be different from a plant made with a normal seed. Of course, the orange cat had assured her that the conditions inside the space were the most perfect to produce plants with the best state, the best taste, and the best weight.
Therefore, the ‘best seed’ that was produced by such a plant would definitely be better than any other seed of the same kind and would have distinctions in taste from regular seeds, which meant that it could be sold as a high-end product.
The same was true of her Dessert Bar. For instance, if she added her grilled fish which used her new condiments to the menu it would definitely sell well. After all, even though every town had many shops that sold grilled fish, some of them would be full of business while others would have no guests at all.
In the final analysis, the success of a food business depended on taste. However, since Su Tang wanted to sell her condiments outside, she knew she definitely couldn’t underestimate the wisdom of ancient people. She was confident that once her condiments were on the market it would only be a matter of time before someone replicated her grilled fish.
After all, grilling fish wasn’t something difficult or arcane. Thus, in order to gain a foothold in the market, her grilled fish could only depend on its excellent taste. And if she was using the best fish with the best seasoning then, of course, the best taste would be produced and, naturally, the price would have to be high.
The things from inside the space couldn’t be sold cheaply. Especially if she took a certain orange Divine Beast’s attitude into consideration. He would be very unhappy if she looked down on his wondrous space by selling the things inside for pennies.
Of course, Su Tang more or less had the same thoughts. Good things were supposed to be expensive from the start, and she wasn’t desperate to the point that she had to exchange the apples and radishes produced by the space for just a small handful of copper coins anymore.
Su Tang didn’t do things randomly. Put simply, when she made a move, there was definitely a purpose and plan behind it. From this, it could be seen that Luo Xingchen still knew Su Tang very well. After all, she really had opened this Dessert Cafe with a plan in mind. That plan was to explore both the purchasing power of women and the potential of the high-end market.
After all, if she could exploit the high-end market in Qinghe Town, then it went without saying that she could do so in other places as well. Forget the small Qinghe Town or Qinghe County, she could go even further and develop in even larger places in the future.
And that was why she had set the prices in her Dessert Cafe so high. Of course, originally, she hadn’t held out much hope for the high prices. She had mostly expected that because the things were so expensive there probably wouldn’t be many people willing to buy them.
However, unexpectedly, that wasn’t the case. Even when her half-off promotion had ended, her sales barely saw a dip.
Su Tang even felt that she had to be a bit grateful to the emperor for maintaining a country where the peasants were so prosperous that they could even eat at a cafe like hers. Although many people were living difficult lives, she still saw some ordinary people every day who just wanted to taste the delicious desserts she was selling.
Although these kinds of families may only be able to afford to eat at her cafe once a month, they were still willing to come and pay to do so.
Even before she came along these people would buy sweets and cakes from time to time to celebrate birthdays for the elders in their families or other similar celebrations, and now that Su Tang’s new cafe had come along they didn’t mind spending a little more to make their big events a bit better.
All this to say that Su Tang had successfully explored the market and found that it was even stronger than she had expected. Although it was true that most people were still poor and that there wasn’t much development in the mid or high-end markets, she just felt that meant there was a lot of untapped potential.
However, as to Luo Xingchen’s question, Su Tang had no intentions to explain directly. She would just let her friend figure it out herself.
