Boboko Indonesian Cafe

BoBoKo concept is all about Passion.  Passion for food inspired by Indonesian cultures.  I was born and raised in a small town south of Bandung west-java province Indonesia
I have 18 years experience in the hospitality industry.  Through hard work, determination and passion for the food industry, I worked my way up to assistant manager at the restaurant who sponsored me to become a US permanent resident.
I created a blog about food and food recipes along with food photography to begin to share my passion for food with others. 
I refined the BoBoKo Indonesian Cafe's concept by competing in a food related business concept competition  "What's Cooking Program"   provided by the city of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County, Virginia partnering with the Shenandoah Valley Small Business Development Center.  I received further encouragement to open this Cafe after achieving first place in this competition.
