  2. 2. Key Summary ! In this research assignment, we, as a group of 7, are required to write a report regarding the comparison of 2 different companies of the same business industry. We are to compare the businesses’ competitive behaviours, to research and analyse the results. We chose to compare two Bak Kut Teh restaurants, which one is in Klang, and the other one is in Subang Jaya. Through our researches, we found out that the restaurant we interviewed in Klang is different from the restaurant in Subang Jaya in the sense that the one in Klang is a family business with a few branches in Selangor, whereas the one in Subang Jaya is a small family business with no branches. !! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
  3. 3. METHODOLOGY Why we choose Bah Kut Teh? We choose Bak Kut Teh over so many other foods is because sometimes Bak Kut Teh could be tasted differently. There are numerous variants
 of bak kut teh with its cooking style closely influenced by the prevailing Chinese enclave of a certain geographical location.There are three types of Bak Kut Teh.which is
 The Teochew style, which is light in color but uses more pepper and garlic in the soup.
 The Hoklo (Hokkien), uses a variety of herbs and soy sauce creating a more fragrant, textured and darker soup. The Cantonese, with a soup-drinking culture, add medicinal herbs as well to create a stronger flavoured soup. Other than that a dry form of bak kut teh has now recently become increasingly popular within Malaysia, especially in Klang town. Although called dry, the broth is in fact reduced to thicker gravy, to which other ingredients such as wolfberries, dried dates, dried chillies and dried squid are added. Unlike the original rib soup, the dry version has a tangier, sharper taste and is more akin to an herbal stew than the classical broth. It is often recommended locally in Malaysia as an excellent hangover cure. But Seng Huat restaurant doesn’t have the dry Bak Kut Teh while restaurant chuan has the dry Bak Kut Teh. ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
  4. 4. HISTORY OF BAH KUT TEH Bak-kut-teh is a herbal soup dish consists of meaty pork ribs simmered in a complex broth of herbs and spices (including star anise, cinnamon, cloves, dang gui, fennel seeds andgarlic) for hours and it is developed in Malaya among Hokkien immigrant communities. The name Bak Kut Teh literally translates as "meat bone tea", the Chinese word bak (肉), which means meat (or more specifically pork), is the vernacular pronunciation in Hokkien, but not in Teochew (which pronounced it as nek), suggesting an original Hokkien root. It is popularly thought to have originated in Klang,where it was claimed that a Chinese sinseh developed the dish in the 1930s. The Teochew variant was developed in Singapore and was sold in
 the Clarke Quay and River Valley areas after World War II. The dish is reported to supplement the meagre diet of port coolies and as a tonic to boost their health. The main
 visual difference between the Hokkien and Teochew version of bak kut teh is that the Hokkiens use more dark soy sauce and thus the soup base is characteristically darker in colour. ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
  5. 5. Brief description of Seng Huat Bah Kut Teh I. The restaurant we went to interviewed named Seng Huat Bak Kut Teh in Klang. Semg Huat Bak Kut Teh is also popular known among Klang floks as “Under the Bridge Bah Kut Teh ‘, because os its close proximity to the bridge. II. According to their story, Seng Huat was the very first Bah Kut Teh stall which was set up just after the World War II III.The founder’s name was Lee wen Di and he started up his first Bah Kut Teh Stall with selling his mix of pork bone soup and then he became famous that everyone calls the dish after him. They started to call it Rou Gu di which the Hokkien dialect is pronouncded Bah Kut Teh. IV.They only have this shop by now; they don’t really set up branches but just the brothers and sisters setting up the restaurants with same Bak Ku Teh recipe. The first shop is set up by the grandfather; it’s just at the opposite side of the road. V.Seng huat is not originated China yet it was started by their grandfather in Malaysia with their own recipe. They used to cook with charcoal in the past but for now is gas. VI.Their main dishes are pork’s hock, pork spare ribs and pork intestine. They also serve traditional Bak Kut Teh side dishes such as soy sauce tea eggs and soy sauce tofu and chinese donut.

The trick they used to manage their business is cook the Bak Ku Teh by their selves instead of asking the workers to do it. ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
  6. 6. Brief description of Chun Bah Kut Teh I. The another Bak Kut Teh restaurant we went to interview is Restaurant Chuan which is located at ss14. II. This restaurant doesn’t have a long time history like Seng Huat’s. They only started their business 8 years ago from now. Which mean this shop got only 8 years history. III.This group of people is the first generation of restaurant Chuan. So far, they don’t have any other branches yet. IV.The Bak Kut Teh recipe they have now was invented by their own. They cook by using gas. V.Same with most of the Bak Kut Teh shop, tbey also serve dished like pork’s hock, pork 
 spare ribs and pork intestine and side dishes like chinese donut.

  8. 8. Strategy employed by Restaurant Chuan Chiew ! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !Strategy !Description !

The soup Bak Kut Teh is served with plentiful of ingredients, all mix together in a clay pot, this includes the innards as well as the thick 3 layer pork.

Workers at here are all very polite and being helpful. Verdict Monopolistic Competitive Monopolistic Competitive
  16. 16. Obstacle Faced By New Business Lack of Capital to Start Business Starting a new Bak Kut Teh shop requires a huge sum of money and does not guarantee profit. Therefore, it is difficult to find businessman who could locate an institution which is willing to be explored. If businessmen use their own savings, they might need to go through many years of hardship. Sometimes the new restaurant is forced to close down when there is no profit to cover up the expenses. ! Big Market Bak Kut Teh restaurant are abundant in Malaysia, especially in Selangor area. If consider open a new Bak Kut Teh restaurant , a lot of competitors are already to conquer your business as there are many shops selling the same Bak Kut Teh. On the other hand, the old restaurant does not need any form of advertising to attract customers while newly restaurant need to greatly promote and sale their food. Hence, Bak Kut Teh restaurant will have a hard time competing with other Bak Kut Teh restaurant for customers. To tackle this problem, a Bak Kut The restaurant must possess unique selling point to make it stand out from competitors around it. ! Unique Selling Point A tasty Bak Kut Teh is not easy to be made. It requires great skills and experience to bring out and bring out the real taste of Bak Kut Teh. As all people have thoer own different preference towards the taste of Bak Kut Teh, they also need to reconsider the taste of the Bak Kut Teh, whether their customers can acceptable the heavy flavour of herbs and spices, saltiness of dishes. Apart from food, they have to provide good services such as always have a smiling face on their face when they serve their customer, have a good environment and comfortable condition, take care of the cleanliness of restaurant, and serve food faster as well. ! Management and Staffs The restaurant owner needs to carefully hire staff and the right employees. They cannot just simply hire a foreigner worker and ask them to cook and manage the whole kitchen while the owner just sit on the cashier area tell them to serve the customers or even ask them to be a waiter and serve customer. There will be a miscommunication if a foreigner worker who does not know Mandarin is hired as a waiter as mostly a Bak Kut Teh restaurant their customers are mostly Chinese. ! !
  17. 17. Nature of Their Market Both Bak Kut Teh shops are in a competitive market because there many Bak Kut Teh shops in the same area. They have to set the price to a standard and fixed price because they do not have ability to charge a higher price than the market price unreasonably. Therefore, having a good services and good quality food with a reasonable price is essential and important to bring back trustworthy customers. Summary Table to Compare ! ! ! !

  19. 19. Recommendations Based on our analysis on Restaurant Seng Huat Bak Kut Teh and Restaurant Chuan Chiew Bak Kut Teh, these are the recommendations we propose to improve their businesses’ competitiveness. The area where both businesses located at are full with business competitors which almost up to 15 to 30 businesses competing with them but both owners seem to be unawareness. According to the interview that we have conducted, both current owners do not have knowledge about their competitors which is important for the future development of the business. Although both businesses are pioneers in Bak Kut Teh industry, they should analyse their competitors. By analysing their competitors, they will get a better insight of them as well as where their business stands at in the market. Seng Huat Bak Kut Teh ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! Areas for Improvement (current situations) Recommendation Spaces Issue Owner should consider expanding the store as there will be more space for people to walk or wait for table. During peak hours, customers and workers hardly can move and the services become slower. Hygiene Issue Owner should consider hiring a few more employees that in charge of hygiene. During peak hour, tables are simply cleaned and rubbish rolled over the floor. Messy and unhygienic environment issue Owner should refurbish their shop as the shop itself is old and the arrangement of the shop is messy so it is unavoidable that it appears dirty and unpleasant.
  20. 20. Restaurant Chuan Bak Kut Teh ! ! !!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! Areas for Improvement (current situation) Recommendations Beverage issue Owner should be more careful about the quantity of ingredients and recipe of cooking bak kut teh as the bak kut teh served us during the interview tasted salty. Advertising issue Owner should customize a new signboard as it is old and dirty. During night, the signboard hardly can be seen. Owner should also create an official website or Facebook page that is easier to notice by people and convenient for people to find their information. ! Interior arrangement issue Owner should efficacious rearrange their shop interior to be more spacious and tidy. Owner should have a store room to keep those spare tables, chairs or other equipment so the shop will appear more pleasant.
