Doing Business in New Zealand – by Leo Kwon
Before I came to New Zealand, I was an IT engineer for Korea Telecom. My mother-in-law wanted to start a restaurant and my wife convinced me to come to New Plymouth and help with her mother’s new restaurant.
Now I help run ‘Korean Bistro’ on Devon Street in New Plymouth. It’s a family business so at the beginning we made a small investment in the business, but now we are basically employees. I have been working there for ten months.
We serve Traditional Korean and fusion food. I think the most popular dish is beef Bulgogi.
Some recent changes have I been involved in at the business are we discussed the updated menu, and now we will do that. I also helped decorate the restaurant for Christmas.
Something I’m most proud of is that my suggestion to change the fried chicken recipe has made it more popular. Next year I would like to have more specials on menu.
