The food industry is changing and therefore food business owners has to keep up with the changing needs and demands of the industry. In 1990, the baking industry has slowed down due to the low supply of wheat products which is the main ingredients to most of the baking production. The business has to change from full-bakery into a semi-restaurant style business (half-bakery and half-cafe).

Noticeable success on the restaurant against the bakery, the family owned business reform it to a full café specializing in noodles and beef stew served with fried rice in a bowl locally known as “Pares and Mami House”.
