To make things worse Chicken Inn has immediately increased the price for soft drinks including water and Coca Cola from $0.50 to $0,60 and from $1 to $1,50.

A 300ml can of Coca Cola now costs $0,60 up from $0,50, while a 500ml can of the same drink now costs $1,50 up from $1 previously. Mineral water has also skyrocketed from $,050 to $0,60.
Delta Corporation Limited (Delta) hiked the price of clear beer but did not do so for soft drinks and customers are querying Innscor’s move.
