Pack and Carry
Cash and Carry.
This is her Ang Koo Kueh - very nice if made with original flavours and ingredients. The skin would not be sticky but easily cut by one's teeth. I love the filling made from green been paste. The fragrance lies in the pandan leaves.
At the end of the morning she will stack up all her baskets and put them in her car. She positions herself at the front of the pork market where she knows the largest number of shoppers will pass by.
Good business depends on several factors:
- the personality of the operator (kindness to all races for example)
- the quality of the goods sold (every one gets good products)
= the strategic positioning of the business
- the demand of the time
- the timing of the business ( as early as possible?)
- the culture of the local populace
- the value for money
You might like to add other factors. She did not have an MBA to know her business and it is really thriving!
By the way Jack Welch also reminds us to be No.1 and No2 in the business....and I think she is the No.1 kueh seller in Sg. Merah...but then I might be biased.....Check it out!
