How did you get started?
As’salaamualaikum and hi! I’m Hajar and I’m blissfully married to Karim, a Chinese Muslim from China.
After getting married, we thought, why don’t we start a Chinese Muslim food business from home? Besides, there aren’t many people out there selling China-style Chinese Muslim food in Johor Bahru.
So in 2017, we started Kaijia Muslim Food and started selling our food online, at night markets, and events.
In 2018, we managed to open our little eatery in UTM, Johor, Malaysia.
And now in 2020, Alhamdulillah we launched our Shopee store to cater to our customers in other states and countries.
So why a China-style Chinese Muslim food business?
- There aren’t many people running this business in Johor Bahru.
- We love our Chinese food and we want to share that love with those who have the same interest as us.
- To let people know more about Chinese Muslims, their culture, and their food.
- Help others gain an income by becoming our reseller and distributor.
- Just because 😁
The journey hasn’t been easy. We don’t have any financial backing or solid business experience. In fact, we started everything from scratch. Learning and unlearning along the way.
What’s your secret?
Doa, Usaha, Ikhtiar, Tawakkal (Supplications, Effort, Initiative, Tawakkul) has helped and is still helping us a lot. Alhamdulillah, we’re thankful for what we’ve achieved thus far.
Plus we’d like to thank everyone who had and are still supporting by buying our products, recommending us, providing us feedback and advice, as well as those who engage us in our services.
I want more details!
We’ll insha’Allah do our best to reply the soonest possible.
Thanks for reading and have a good day ahead! 💐
