Chapter 119
The process was completed quickly, and Jiang Chen acquired the rights to the factory . When the 2 . 7 million was transferred to Zheng Hongjie’s bank account, and he received the confirmation message on his phone, the man finally lets out a sigh of relief .
He still acted as the plant manager with a base salary of 8000, and based on sales there would be bonuses . Just like before, he would have to take care of everything from marketing to production . Although a bit overwhelming, Jiang Chen gave him a lucrative bonus plan . It would depend on his sales to see how much he would get in the end .
"I won’t care too much on how the plant is operated, but you have to do a few things for me . " Although he said it casually, Zheng Hongjie still sensed the inflexibility in his tone .
"Please go ahead . " Zheng Hongjie nodded with an earnest expression .
"First, if you want to do it, then go big . Processing for other people can be put aside . We’ll have to develop our own brand . "
"Our own brand?" Zheng Jiehong forced a smile, and continued, "To be honest, I tried to start my own brand before, but the cost is too high . Advertisement, sponsorship, distribution channel, it was incomparable to the profit margin of processing for other people, there’s also more risk . "
Jiang Chen shook his head laughing .
"Processing for other people is enough if we want to remain small, but I don’t plan on doing that . I’ll continue to invest in the early stages, including research and development, upgrading to the larger production lines, and expanding the plant . You don’t have to worry about the sales channel, I’ll mention it next . As to distribution and advertisement, I’ll take care of it . "
[Funny, there is no channel better than the Internet right? Promotion could be done on Future 1 . 0, such as free moon cake during the mid-autumn festival . Or when he makes Liu Yao famous, getting her to promote the brand would be simple . ]
Seeing the boss so certain, although Zheng Jiehong was still unsure, he didn’t continue asking .
"Second, this is the most important point . We’ll transition to international trade . I need you to register for import and export requirement; the destination is currently Pannu Island . We’ll import the fruit to produce fruit can and sell domestically, then export other canned food . "
When he heard Jiang Chen’s words, Zheng Hongjie slightly raised his eyebrows . He asked wondering .
"I considered export before, but it was not as easy it as it seems . First being that we don’t have a strong brand, second being the cost . We don’t have any advantages compared to corporations in Australia, or the Philippine . And the most critical factor is transport . I know a little about Pannu Island . It’s a small island country in the Pacific, and it doesn’t even have a deep water port to dock larger ships . "
"You don’t have to worry about that . It won’t be long until an investor builds a cargo port there . You only need to expand production and sell to them, and produce the cheap food imported from there into food cans . " Jiang Chen smiled mysteriously and didn’t explain more .
Zheng Hongjie paused as he had a weird expression on his face, looking at Jiang Chen . Although he was curious as to why the boss knew a lot about the third-world country but since the boss didn’t plan to say more, he stopped asking .
"Third, this not something official so you only need to keep it in mind . I need you to have surplus goods every month . "
It was okay to buy from the food store owner in the short term, but it was not a reliable long term situation . Since goods only went into the warehouse and never out, one or two times, it wouldn’t cause any suspicion, but any more than that would be problematic . Once the Fishbone’s population increases, it would have a higher demand for food, a food processing plant would be the safer choice .
"Surplus goods?" Zheng Hongjie almost thought he heard it wrong .


Surplus goods referred to goods overproduced . Usually, it would either be given out to employees for free or discounted at a low price . It was the first time he heard someone wanted surplus good .
"Mhmm, I’ll let you know the amount, you only need to keep that in mind . These goods don’t need to be branded . It’s not for selling . I have other uses . "
After hearing Jiang Chen’s explanation, Zheng Hongjie didn’t ask more . Although it was an odd request, it was nothing complicated . Him, being a boss before, knew that he only needed to listen .

"Dad!"
"My cute daughter, haha, daddy is back . " Zheng Hongjie hugged his daughter, who leaped towards him with a warm smile .
"Dad, who is this?" The adorable girl blinked her big eyes looking at Jiang Chen .
Jiang Chen kneeled down and looked at this energetic little girl with a smile . He then said with an amiable voice, "Uncle is your dad’s friend . What’s your name?"
"My name is Jiajia, I am in second grade at experimental school~" Jiajia replied in a cute tone .
Jiang Chen paused when he heard experimental school .
"Uncle, are you okay?" Jiajia tilted her head .
"Oh, nothing, hehe . " Jiang Chen forced a laugh and answered in a light-hearted tone .
[Sun Jiao is probably still waiting for me on the other side…]
He peeked at his right hand . He tried this morning, but it still didn’t work .
"You are back, and this is?" A virtuous looking woman came out of the kitchen and asked her husband when she saw Jiang Chen .
"This is my boss, Mr . Jiang . " Zheng Hongjie smiled at his wife .
"You… finally sold the plant?"


"You… finally sold the plant?"
"Mhmm, I did . But Mr . Jiang hired me to continue to run the plant . "
Kong Jie looked at the smile she hasn't seen for a long time on her husband’s face as her eyes became moist .
She took a deep breath in and to both Jiang Chen and Zheng Hongjie’s surprise, she sincerely bowed towards Jiang Chen .
"Honey?"
"What, what are you doing?" Jiang Chen looked at her actions, not knowing how to react .
"For a while, Hongjie had been worried about the plant every day . He regretted trusting his friend’s word . I was really scared, scared that one day if he couldn’t think things through, he would leave us…" Tears began to emerge from Kong Jie’s eyes .
Seeing the tears in his wife’s eyes, Zheng Hongjie suddenly hugged her .
"Fool, there is no way I would leave you . " The tough man’s voice had a sob tone to it .
Jiang Chen silently watched them as a smile emerged on his face .
It would best not to interrupt them right now .
"Uncle . " Jiajia looked up and blinked her big eyes at Jiang Chen .
"Hmm? Do you have something Little Jiajia?" Jiang Chen regathered his thoughts and kneeled down again, rubbing her hair .
"Thank you," Jiajia said sweetly .
Haha .
Jiang Chen suddenly burst out laughing . Jiajia tilted her head and looked at the uncle in front of her, confused .
"No problem, Jiajia is very courteous . " For some reason, his mood was delighted at this moment .
"Hehe . " Because she received recognition, Jiajia smiled shyly .
After Zheng Hongjie had finished hugging his wife, he looked awkwardly at Jiang Chen . It was rather impolite to leave the guest hanging during a display of affection . The thin-skinned Kong Jie already fleeted to the kitchen . Jiajia tilted her head not knowing the situation, while Zheng Hongjie expressed his apology with a blushed face .

Jiang Chen, with a smile, motioned it was okay . He then began to chat with Zheng Hongjie on the sofa .
Zheng Hongjie was a talkative person as he was a taxi driver before he started a business . Although his experience was nowhere near as exciting as Jiang Chen, his depth of experience far exceeded Jiang Chen's .
His wife Kong Jie was a traditional woman, she virtuously cooked the meal and asked everyone to eat .
On the table, Jiang Chen and Zheng Hongjie had a few drinks . Jiajia curiously reached her hand towards the cup which made Jiang Chen chuckle more .
[Is this the feeling of home?]

He thought about it, and it did feel like this when he was at the wily old fox Wang Dehai’s place .
He was suddenly envious of the feeling . He didn’t know why .
Maybe it was time to go back to his hometown Lake City . Perhaps during New Year; it was already October .
Jiang Chen fell into a deep thought while watching the table filled with home cooked dishes .
But suddenly, a fierce door smashing sound transmitted from the outside, it forced him out of his thoughts .
"Who?" Jiang Chen was lost as he looked at Zheng Hongjie .
But Zheng Hongjie was confused as well . He exchanged a confused look with his wife before he got up and walked towards the door .
"You are?" Zheng Hongjie opened the door as he looked confusedly at the men in front .
"Fu*k you, we are here to collect our money!" A few young men in shirts saw that the door was opened and they didn’t hesitate to force their way in .
"Wait, do you guys have the wrong person-"After being pushed aside, Zheng Hongjie struggled frightened .
"This is the loan agreement, three million . We are debt collectors . " A young man with a buzz cut aggressively pushed Zheng Hongjie as they surrounded him, sneering .
"Wait, do you guys have the wrong person-"After being pushed aside, Zheng Hongjie struggled frightened .
"This is the loan agreement, three million . We are debt collectors . " A young man with a buzz cut aggressively pushed Zheng Hongjie as they surrounded him, sneering .
"What are you guys doing!? Let Hongjie go . I am going to call the police!" Kong Jie took out the phone as she said shakingly .
"Police? Don’t use cops to scare me . Let me get this straight . Do you know who my boss Sir Qiang is?" The young men said cockily . A man in shades stood behind him with a cigarette in his mouth . He didn’t speak .
This guy was probably Sir Qiang .
"Dad!" Jiajia saw that her father was in trouble as her adorable face twisted, with tears in her eyes she wanted to run up .
"Don’t come, Jiajia! Dad is okay . " Zheng Hongjie immediately stopped her . Kong Jie also grabbed Jiajia and hugged her .
He took a deep breath as Zheng Hongjie looked at the young men . "I already prepared the money, and I’ll borrow from my relatives some more in the next few days-"
"Next few days? I want to take care of this today –"

At this moment, the young man suddenly saw Jiang Chen, his thuggish look instantly froze .
To be honest, Jiang Chen was surprised from the start . He didn’t expect to see him here again .
Jiang Chen mischievously examined the young men as he opened his mouth .
"Oh, what a coincidence, it’s you again?"
