Chip shops were one of the earliest business models in history. The consumer would be drawn in with the promise of cheap, delicious chips, and then was tempted to buy perhaps a pickled egg or a fried meat at greater cost.
This business model was adopted with disasterous consequences by dentists in the early 18th century.
