Restaurant chain Bakmi GM is set to open outlets in Sumatra and other cities in Java, according to a report by KompasTravel.
The director of engineering & service division of the restaurant's holding company, PT Griya Miesejati, Widianto, told KompasTravel in Jakarta on Wednesday that it had big plans to expand to more Indonesian cities.
The chain currently has restaurants in Greater Jakarta, Bandung in West Java, Surabaya in East Java, Bali, Cikarang and Karawang in West Java.
"This is our big plan; to multiply our outlets in Greater Jakarta to be available in all Indonesian regions. Currently we're still concentrating in Surabaya and Denpasar; next we will expand to several cities in Sumatra and Java. It's in the pipeline; we just need to realize it," added Widianto.
Formerly known as Bakmi Gajah Mada, as its first location is on Jl. Gajah Mada, Bakmi GM was first established in 1959. It boasts serving more than 30,000 customers every day.
During the celebration of its 60th anniversary on Wednesday, the company gave 121 bicycles that were assembled by its employees to orphaned children across Greater Jakarta. (ran/kes)
