An all-you-can-eat restaurant in China has shut its doors after customers ate too much food.
Jiamener, a hot pot restaurant in the Sichuan province city of Chengdu closed its doors after customers took advantage of their $19 all-you-can-eat deal.
The overeating customers drove the restaurant into $80,000 worth of debt.
The establishment, which opened in December, wanted to get a leg up on the competition, so on June 1 they created a promotion in which customers paid a low fee for a membership card that allowed them to chow down on as much food as they wanted for a month.
Some customers reportedly passed their membership card around to family and friends, causing the volume of consumed meals to hit a fever pitch.
The owners were hoping to gain loyal customers from the deal and knew they would lose some money, but they did not anticipate the $80,000 in losses.
Hot pot restaurants are reportedly very popular in Chengdu, which has a population of more than 10 million people. There are more than 20,000 hot pot restaurants estimated to be in the area.
