The key selling point for the CP frozen meal range at 99 Speedmart are ‘no preservative’ and quick to prepare in ‘4 minutes.’
The CP range consists of three local favorites – Fried bee hoon (fried vermicelli), nasi lemak and kampung fried rice. The nasi lemak is priced at RM 4.40 (USD 1.00), while the other two is RM 3.90 each.
The company has provided a microwave at participating outlets. The microwave is located next to the cashier, which means only the cashier is allowed to handle the Sharp microwave.
