After a few days, they wanted to change the price to suit the market. But the love shown by old and new customers coming to buy Rs 2 cone ice cream, the owner decided not to change the price.

Within a few days after that, Vinu's popularity increased through the media and social media. On the one hand, everyone is questioning how they can give ice cream for Rs 2 if prices are skyrocketing.
Answering customer questions, Vinoth said, “We make ice cream with milk. Quality is nowhere to be compromised. The average price of this ice cream in the market is Rs 20. But, we are selling for Rs 2. However, people who come to eat this ice cream will compensate for the loss by buying high-profit cakes and kova. He replied that the emotion of Rs 2 ice cream started by our father will continue.”
