DO something different. Buy a Lamborghini and modify it. Everyone wants an excuse to stand next to a Lamborghini and so will buy your lok lok goods. You can call it The Lok-Lokghini!

You need to compete against "Fatman Steamboat", who was a major player in the this business, especially in Selangor area.

If you have the license to operate, the rest of the things is what the books says "How to beat Goliath with Davids's stone".

Mr. Audi,

Why don't you contact Fatman and try to work for them first. They operate more like a franchise system. They give you the lorry, the generator and the stocks. The more you sell, the more you earn. Try to gauge the risk from operating under Fatman first. They are always hiring. They will also assign where you can sell so other operators won't clash with you. If it is worthwhile, only then you get your own operation and you can even sell where you have always been selling. Things is if you are on your own, the modified van will cost you a bomb though. Then you will also have to spend another half the day sourcing foodstuffs and cleaning and preparing the sauce and skewering the foodstuffs. Plus the other half of the day selling it. Advantages of operating under Fatman outweighs doing it on your own. You just collect the stuffs and sell and those unsold return back to them.

They can still make a profit because of their volume. If each of the vans comes back and they only make say RM100 a night, it is still OK for them because there are maybe another 20 of them which makes up the volume. With volume comes cash turnover which can generate more numbers if needed. Just like a satay operator friend I have. He operates 5 stalls in coffee shops and hires kampong boys to grill and operate. He pays them and also pays the rental and even if each stall can make RM50 a night after all the expenses, he's satisfied, at times even if the staffs curi makan. He has RM250 clean profit a day which earns him RM7500 a month. This is just a conservative figure but I am sure it's more. He drives an Alphard around, if it was one stall, he won't be able to survive.

Same case here with Fatman Lok Lok! Can you survive on your own? Work for them first and try it out. icon_rolleyes.gif

Hey Etigge, U sure are a walking tome of current information and experience in the food industry.
Although i'm just slightly interested in the food industry (alternative options), i find your posts luring me into it (ie. logical and good grounding) heheh.
Just a simple thank you. thumbup.gif notworthy.gif

I completely agree, go ahead and try it out as long as everything works out. Just thinking about loklok now makes me crave for the food. By the way, does anybody by any chance know how to make the loklok spicy sauce? what is the recipe?
