Should I invest in fried chicken?

October 24, 2012

No, I don’t mean to open a fried chicken joint (FCJ).

I found this 1994 Grandy’s receipt in one of the books while I was cleaning my garage.

A 10-pc Fried Chicken dinner is $17.99 today. It was $11.99 eighteen years ago. Lets check the inflation. According to, the amount $11.99 in 1994 should worth $18.20 in today’s money (after the CPI adjustment, blah, blah, blah). In other words, today’s fried chicken dinner is cheaper than that in 1994.

On the other hand, a 29 cents stamp back in 1994 should only cost 44 cents today. May be we should outsource the post office to fried chicken joints. The convenience factor is that FCJ is everywhere but not the post office. Plus, someone can offer a daily special like buy a 10-pc meal and get a couple “food” stamps back. Its a win-win solution.
