Fakruddin Biryani & Restaurant is a very famous Biryani house in Bangladesh

whereas Fakruddin was the most famous Bangladeshi Chef. The house is well
known because of its line of quality product. If people think to have Biryani then
Fakruddins Biryani comes into their mind at first.

It is one of the oldest and famous Biryani restaurants in Bangladesh. It is

maintaining its consistency till today where no wadays there are varieties of
products available for food lovers. Still people want to go to Fakruddin Foods
Ltd. only to have Biryani. The company faces intense competition from other
established brands but it has successfully able to create competitive advantage to
sustain in the competitive environment. Thats why this shop never lacks in

Fakruddin Biryani & Restaurant was started by Late Haji MD. Fakruddin in a
very simple and smaller way. But, gradually his son and then grandson are
expanding the same business after him. Their business is like chain business. One
person had started and his next generation is continuing the fathers business as a
trend. In case of Fakruddin the next generation did not expand the product line
where as they expand their business through expanding their outlets with the
traditional products. First generations target was to serve customers in selected
zone, second generations goal was to reach all big cities in Bangladesh and third
generations target is to become international food chain. By these ways the new
generation took the fathers food business to a new hike with their own strategy of
running business.

Meeting a competent and busy individual such as MD. Rafiq and knowing ab out
his well established business was not an easy task for us. However, we were
extremely lucky because was able to meet us in his office and gave us his precious
45 minutes. We tried to utilize the time as much as possible but it was his manager
who helped us with our questionnaires. Talking to the owner as well as an
employee helped us lot gathering information and seeing things from different
We interviewed MD. Rafiq but we did not have specific set of formal questions
prepared for him rather we had a casual conversation. Our conversation was very
interactive but unfortunately did not last long as he is a very busy man. Later, we
interviewed some of the employee who were present in the office.

Fakruddin Biryani & Restaurant is a very famous Biryani house in Bangladesh. It is also one of
the oldest and famous Biryani restaurants in Bangladesh. It is maintaining its consistency till
today where nowadays there are varieties of products available for food lovers.

Late Haji MD. Fakruddin ws born and raised in Patna, India. He migrated to Bangladesh in the
year 1952. At that time Bangladesh was called East-Bengal. He settled and started living
somewhere in Chittagong with his wife, 5 sons and 3 daughters. After few years he came to
Dhaka with his whole family. At that time his son Rafiq (8years) decided to be a hawker to help
his father supporting the family. He even used to do house hold works in many homes. In 1965
MD. Fakruddin got a permanent job in Viqarunnisa Noon School as a guard.
Late Haji MD. Fakruddin was the guard of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College. But he was
always willing to cook food. It was his passion. While he was doing his guard duty in front of
Viqarunnisa Noon School and College, he was planning to sale his snacks at the same time as
there were lots of parents use to sit before the school gate. Thats why he used to cook some
snacks and bring it with him in the tiffin boxes. At that time he made Shingara, Shamuc ha and
sold it to the parents. His food was not only tasty but also hygienic. The parents who were the
main customers that time liked it very much.

Page- 8


Then all the parents went to the principal of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College to
recommend Fakruddin for selling his food items into the canteen of Viqarunnisa. The principal
of Viqarunnisa tasted his food and was very much impressed by his Shingara, Shamucha. So, she
gave him the permission for selling his food items into the canteen. It was 1966 when he
officially started his food business. He sold foods in both morning and day shifts. Fakruddin did
a monopoly business in Viquarunnisas canteen. From 1966 till today Viquarunnisas canteen
depends on Fakruddins food.

How the present Business got started

Before Hamid Ali became the principal of Viqarunnisa, Fakruddin was only doing business in
Viqarunnisas canteen and selling Biryani in orderly basis in a very limited amount. But, his
main expansion started at the time of Hamid Ali. That time, all his foods were served in every
events of Viqarunnisa such as Farewell, Rag Day, Annual Milad Mahafil, Pohela baishak
Program, Silver Jubilee etc. For the first time he started to take big orders and for Annual Milad
Mahofil he gave sweets, Shingara, Nimki in boxes for all the students and teachers. This trend is
still going on in Viqarunnisa. Any food inside Viqarunnisa means Fakruddins food.
MD. Fakruddin opened his first outlet in Moghbazar after achieving large amount of profit from
the business in Viqarunnisa. Within one year he established a restaurant. In his restaurant the
core item was Biryani but there were lots of other food items that were also available. For
example Kattchi Biryani, Chicken Biryani, Beef Tehari, Chicken Roast, Jali Kabab, Borhani,
Chicken Rezala, Polao Rice, Korma, Muttun Curry, Beef Rezala, varieties of Kabab ( Beef
Shammi Kabab, Beef Jali Kabab, Beef Tikka Kabab) etc. At that time he served approximately
200 customers daily. He died in the year 1995.

In his lifestyle he refused to fall for the trappings of the rich although by then he was a rich man,
but most importantly he passed on his sense of self dignity to his children who also shared his
ideals of being true to their roots.

SWOT Analysis
High quality food.
A set of permanent and loyal
Hygienic Kitchen in restaurants.
Good Behavior with customers helps
create customer relation.
A single family runs the whole
Owners spend their time in the
working place as a employee not as a
Own fleet of covered vans.
Maintaining strong ethics.
Brand Image.
Full surveillance system in the
kitchen to prevent adulteration.

Traditional ingredients that make
foods rich in cholesterol, fat etc.
Problems in attracting and holding
back new customers due to lack of
advertising and promotion.
The main office where the food is
cooked for catering service is not
enough hygienic.

Expansion to Chittagong.
Establishing outlets in Australia and
some other countries.
Developing a catering system for
special occasions.
Developing home service facilities.
Expansion of the menu and items.
Using wider advertising media
instead of depending mostly on wordof-mouth.
Move to a healthier menu: create a
vegetarian menu, and use fewer
dairies in the regular items.

Aggressive marketing strategies by
other competitors, for ex: - Hazir
Biryani and Rasoi are leading to
decrease in sales.
Volatile political situations.
Rise in sales of competitors products
as more substitutes are open to
Increasing price of raw materials.
Threats of and corruption done by
Threat of law suit: increasing obesity.

Since Fakruddin Foods Ltd is entirely a family business we can find no one at Top management
of the company. Mr. Hazi Muhammad Rafique and Mr. Abdul Khaleque are ones running this
huge business. Under them they have hired some supervisors who take care of their catering
service and a few managers who looks after the restaurants. The rest are low level workers.

The ingredients used in the foods that Fakruddin Foods LTD serve are not at liked by
health conscious people so it would be better if they would change their ingredients or
extend the menu with healthy foods with less cholesterol, fat etc.
More emphasis should be given to research and development, by hiring chefs from
abroad since this restaurant sells mostly foreign dishes.
The company uses no promotional activities or advertising which could help them
building up a greater customer attraction.
The authority should research required to determine optimal number of dishes for
each branch because of high demand of dishes of fakruddin , many customer dont
get their desired one.
Branches in Dhaka should have formal western uniforms for waiters , while the
uniform should be traditional Bangladeshi for branches in Chittagong and Sylhet.
Sometimes waiters want some extra money to customers for their service which
doesnt go with their ethics . So the manner of waiters should be maintained
through continual training and their speed of service should be improved.
Customers cant enjoy their dishes perfectly as the condition of chairs arent so
good and very uncomfortable. So the restaurant authority should concern about the
comfortness of chairs immediately .

All these things are the evidence of the popularity of Fakruddin Biryani & Restaurant in
Bangladesh and outside Bangladesh. Its market demand is increasing day by day. It is becoming
more diversified with its product line. In every era of its expansion is has gained a remarkable
success which can be predicted through its popularity. Its increasing outlet proved that it is
escalating its profit every year by making the restaurant internationalized. Therefore, from the
beginning to the whole expansion it has achieved positive market reaction from its customers.
