The Beginning of the Fook Yuen Brand
Fook Yuen’s diversification…
Fueled with the vision to expand the Fook Yuen business, the owners grouped their resources together and diversified into retailing business. They named the new Fook Yuen retail arm as ‘L&V Wares and Supplies’ and has opened its doors to the public since 11th December 2014.
This new retail arm, named after the two partners, Lo and Vui, offers varieties of goods from baking utensils to home wares to toys.
Both owners operate L&V with the same objectives as its core business arm and they are:
• To have returning customers;
• To have customers returning happily; and
• To be a treasured supplier to all customers, from all walks of life.
To allow more people the access to its goods, the owners have secured a shop for its 2nd L&V outlet, which will be opening soon in the Damai Plaza, Kota Kinabalu.
Pictorial views of the 1st L&V Wares and Supplies and the 2nd can be seen in pages 25 and 26 of this profile.
The Beginning of the Fook Yuen Brand
Their business philosophy is, good and affordable food is a necessity for all and Fook Yuen wants to be the one to fulfill this necessity to all, while maintaining good quality and hygienic practices in the food and beverages productions. To ensure quality and to maintain the good name of their brand, Fook Yuen’s bread and buns are made free of preservatives.
Both founders have adopted a new business tagline and it is ‘Fook Yuen, F&B for ALL’.
Fook Yuen has also implemented a quality policy at all its outlets and it is. ‘Serve FRESHLY produced F&B daily to attract more returning customers; practice good hygiene in the production of food & beverages; and serve ALL produced F&B daily to minimize wastage.’
The development and growth of Fook Yuen business…
The 1st outlet and also the catalyst for its popularity was the Fook Yuen coffee shop cum bakery at the Damai Plaza, Luyang (Damai) in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. It started with a typical coffee ship design / set up i.e, with waitresses taking orders and cashiers collecting payments from each table. Now, it still maintains its typical set up through with an additional section for bakery sales.
Over the years, Fook Yuen has grown and expanded to include 5 other outlets within Kota Kinabalu city and Labuan. Kindly refer to Fook Yuen Outlets’ Pictures for the pictorial views of all its outlets in Kota Kinabalu. Realizing the demand for the supplied food and beverages for all outlets, Fook Yuen invested in a property in Makat Industrial Estate and turned it into its central production unit, producing and supplying majority of those items offered at all its commercial outlets.
As shown in the pictures, the 5 other outlets applied a more contemporary outlet layout design enhanced with self-service concept as compared with the Damai original outlet’s typical coffee shop set up with an additional section for bakery sales.
After getting JAKIM halal certification for two (2) of its modern-designed outlets in 2010, Fook Yuen was able to realize its objective of opening its doors to all Muslims customers which is in line with ‘Food & beverage for All ‘business tagline. With this in mind, Fook Yuen invested further into getting its central processing unit to be certified with MESTI and Halal. Upon successful application for the central unit, Fook Yuen will be able to renew its Halal certification for the existing 2 outlets and apply the same certification for all its other outlets.
