Welcome To Dapur Penyet
Amran Abd Hamid, director and founder of Dapur Penyet Malaysia grew up with the longing of achieving success in his life. Despite the setbacks of his first business attempt, Amran never gave up. Filled with determination and perseverance, he established Dapur Penyet to promote Indonesian cuisine. In an interview with Top 10 of Malaysia, the enterprising Amran talks about his business venture and the latest dishes he has for 2019.
Amran Abd Hamid hailed from the “Pearl of the Orient” but grew up in the idyllic countryside near Kulim. This self-proclaimed “kampung boy” had always wanted to make a big success of his life. After completing a degree in Corporate Administration, he worked towards being qualified as a member of the professional body for company secretarial practices and he succeeded at the age of 25. However, Amran never lost sight of what he really wanted in life. He then started his own company as a contractor in the water treatment industry. Unfortunately, that didn’t go well for Amran. “I was simply too young and inexperienced to run my own business,” he confesses.<br>
It was over dinner with a friend in Singapore that the idea of Dapur Penyet cropped up. In 2010, Amran and his partner started their first Dapur Penyet outlet in the Maju Junction Mall in Kuala Lumpur and the brand now expanded into Singapore, Indonesia, Brunei and Myanmar. Currently, there are some 150 outlets. Amran says, “I want food from the ASEAN region to get more recognition and to be presented in the quick service restaurant format.” He has definitely succeeded into making that happen with Dapur Penyet.
