Reduced tax rate At the Yoshinoya, customers who choose beef bowl “take-away” are also on October 1 at 13:12
At the major beef bowl “Yoshinoya”, there were also customers who bought beef bowls at “take-away”, where tax rates were lower than in-store food and drinks due to the reduced tax rate.
Of these, at the 24-hour store in Tokyo / Yurakucho, the system of four cash registers was switched to accommodate the new consumption tax rate at around 10:00 am.
While “Yoshinoya” will increase the tax-included price for in-store food and beverages where a 10% tax rate is applied, “Takeaway” will be applied with a reduced tax rate of 8%.
For this reason, there were also customers who chose “takeaway” on a day and purchased beef bowls.
A 23-year-old office worker woman who bought beef bowls at “Takeaway” said, “I decided to buy it at takeaway because I heard that the consumption tax rate is still 8%. Lunch is often taken home and eaten. I am thankful that the price does not change. "
On the other hand, a 16-year-old male high school student who ate beef bowl in the store said, “It is hard to raise the tax rate of 2% because it is a student and there is no money. I will take it home in the future because the tax rate at takeout remains 8%.” I was talking.
Yoji Terasawa, General Manager of Yoshinoya Planning Headquarters, said, “It's a headwind for dining out, because it increases the tax rate by 2% in the restaurant, but it can be an opportunity if we take in demand for cheap take-out. I wanted to do it. "
