After finished our SME Workshop in Jakarta (14 January), I came back to Surabaya first in 15 January. Then, I started to bound for Yogyakarta at 7 am by train. Why must back to Surabaya first? I could not directly go to Yogyakarta from Jakarta because of bureaucratic administration.
Anyway, I conducted series of interview to emerging local companies targeted to middle class or volume zone market in Indonesia. In Yogyakarta, I visited and interviewed Super Wash (laundry franchise chain) in 16 January, and Kemitraan A Swalayan (mini market establishment and management consulting) in 17 January. After coming back to Surabaya, I interviewed Coffee Toffee (cafe franchise chain) in Surabaya in 20 January.
With Mr. Lidi (President Director) and Mr. Ali (Manager) at office of Super Wash, Yogyakarta, 16 January 2015.
with Mr. Putut, Mr. Sulis and Mr. Danan (Managers) at office of Kemitraan A Swalayan, Klaten, Yogyakarta, 17 January 2015.

I could get many interesting information from them and some key points why they have emerged their business in local areas. I will compile the interview results for survey reports to JETRO Jakarta.
