|Business Opportunity||The traditional Malay concept dining in Malaysian market is yet to be exploiting aggressively. Although it is supposed to be the culture of Malaysia yet not many company able to deliver this authentic concept within the mall environment. In local Malaysian business environment, most of the authentic Malay restaurants are normally owned by well-known or celebrity chef in Malaysia. The demand is very high, yet the cooking method makes many entrepreneurs not be able to deliver the authentic Malay quality of food. At Hidang, our Executive Chef and other kitchen crew are well equipped with the skills. Looking at our current demand where, many local and international target market are hunger for Authentic Malay Cuisine.

The main factor is because of the Hidang being a one stop center for dine and to show the element of Malay Culture. We are basically working hard in exposing Hidang to local and also international market at Malaysia. We had been featured in local newspapers and magazine.

Currently we are focusing on Airport Community which housing approximately 14,000 employees and shall expending to nearby township such as Nilai, Sepang, Cyberjaya and Putrajaya. The market is extremely huge and highly potential.
Looking at our company business master plan, we are planning to expend Hidang at international destination such as London and Australia. We are choosing these two destinations due to super high demand on authentic Malay food. There are many initiatives had been done by the government to market and introduce Malay Food at international destination such as London. Malaysia Kitchen is one of the most successful programs organized by Malaysia Government in bringing Malaysian food to the world. We could also see a lot of Malaysian taste restaurant had been successful in Australia. These are simple business case study that we took when we develop our business masterplan. We would like to bring Malay food and showcase the culture to the world.
