Food lovers of pig’s organ soup would have been well aware of the famous “Mun Chee Kee” brand which was established since 1970’s. The Authentic Mun Chee Kee King of Pig’s Organ Soup was setup by Mr David Tan and Mr Derek Tan together with Mr Chow Mun Chee, the founder of the brand back in 2010, hoping to ride on the success of the brand.
Now a leading brand by itself for being the only one within the “Mun Chee Kee” group to be patronised and praised by renowned food critic Chua Lam (蔡瀾), one would have thought that it was all smooth sailing from the being. However, being part of an established brand name does not guarantee immediate success, as both Mr David and Mr Derek found out during the initial years of the establishment. Material costs were high at the beginning, and the business struggled on for over a year making loses before turning over through the learning curve. Hard work, commitment and perseverance is always part of the food business and the owners emphasised on such traits as their key to success.
While working long hours and facing with labour shortage are the sacrifices that both Mr Tan have to make, the self-satisfaction in seeing happiness in their customers tucking into their food and asking for soup refill itself is more than rewarding to persevere on, while stressing about happiness at work within his employees.
Having now an established stable business with a huge group of followers who would purposely make a trip down for the food, both Mr Tan hope to continue the success of the business by venturing into more branches in the future.
