Our Brand History
In 1954, with the equipment and ingredients of the trade secured on a pole over his shoulders, our founder, Mr. Chong Seng Tong, plied the streets of Chinatown with his wife on foot selling his specialty Hakka Yong Tow Foo. The food then was simple - noodles and yong tow foo in a bowl of delicious soup that was boiled with soya beans and ikan bilis. Earnestly calling out to customers, old Mr. Chong established a deep and heart-felt connection with the early Chinese immigrants and this marked the beginning of the close relationship between Koo Kee Yong Tow Foo and Chinatown.
In 1960, old Mr. Chong set up a zinc-and-wooden mobile kiosk under a tree next to Majestic Theatre, which became a permanent spot for his stall where he continued to serve his signature dish to his faithful customers. When the old Mr. Chong fell ill, his wife continued the business to support the family with the help of their son, Mr. Chong Yik Hwee. From the tender age of 12, Mr. Chong Yik Hwee picked up the knowledge and skills of the trade.
Combined with his enterprising spirit and hard work, Mr. Chong Yik Hwee grew the business and set up Gao Ji Food (S) Pte Ltd.
