Starting from Dimas’s desire to open a unique culinary business that has never existed in Indonesia, watermelon ice was born from India. After trying it, this iced snack turned out to be in demand by the public.

“We’re just looking for something weird, in Indonesia what doesn’t exist yet? We’re looking for it, most people ask for weird snacks. It’s like ice pong-pong, it’s delicious. I saw on YouTube Indian watermelon ice. Well, it’s not here in Indonesia yet. Give it a try,” said Dimas on the Jajan Ranger YouTube channel which was uploaded on Sunday, October 3, 2021.

In a day, Dimas can spend up to 50 watermelons as the basic ingredients for making Indian watermelon ice. “A day it can be 50 watermelons, if there are more (buyers) the watermelon can be even more,” he said.

Philip, who is not interested in the retail business, sold the shares to Djoko and Northstar. In 2010 Djoko bought Northstar so that he owns 65 percent of the company’s shares.

In 2007, Djoko also founded Alfamidi.

However, in the middle of the journey, Alfa Supermarket had to be sold to Carrefour because of the unsatisfactory turnover. Now Djoko is still focused on the retail business which has now made him one of the richest people in Indonesia.
