drama, etc)
Awareness: Admittedly minimal
Youthful Demographics A massive youth population (aged between 15 and
24) of around 40.9bn in Indonesia underlines the potentially dynamic
opportunities available in the mass-market. As this youthful population matures,
accompanied with rising purchasing power, demand for mass-market products
should also grow accordingly over the coming years. The growing receptiveness

are key drivers behind soft drinks and confectionery sales, further endorses our
bullish long-term consumer picture.

Through social media, we should give them information that can educate them
about the truly BonChon than the other chicken fast-food for example, the status

in facebook or in twitter it should give campaign about the advantages of organic

chicken and the others about the healthy food. Actually, this point are aim to
change the mindset of people about the fast-food because BonChon as a fast
food it is not like the common fast food outside but BonChon will give more value
in healthy chicken since BonChon using organic chicken.
