20 Feb Makan.ie Indonesian Online Food Pertama di Irlandia
Makan.ie was established in November 2019. The first Indonesian online food shop in Ireland.
The reason to create Makan.ie was mainly due to the lack of Indonesian seasoning & snacks in Ireland.
Long before Makan.ie opened, Irene already had begun with Toko Betawi.com in 2007 also selling Indonesian food and snacks online. At that time, not many people were using social media like today or bought online. However, in 2009 Toko Betawi had to close down due to Irene moving to Indonesia to open Irish Pubs.
Then, in 2019 Shaqira, (Irene’s first daughter) asked to start again the online business, so Tokobetawi was reborn as Makan.ie.
After a family discussion, what’s the best name for the reborn Toko Betawi, Niall Barrett (Irene’s son-in-law) came up with the name MAKAN, which means eat in Indonesian.
Expect new developments for Makan.ie over the next few months with a new warehouse in the planning.
