It was at the height of the Asian Financial Crisis. The country was reeling from the impact. Belts were tightened and many businessmen took conservative routes to ride the crisis over. In the midst of this turmoil, two young entrepreneurs, Tengku Rozidar and Ahmad Zakir, set up the first ever hot dog store in Sunway Pyramid, Malaysia. The rest, as they say, is history. From the first pushcart, 1901 now has grown by leaps and bounds with over 70 outlets by 2007.

For Tengku Rozidar and Ahmad Zakir, 1901 is the culmination of their dream. They believe that many fellow Malaysians would like to run their own business, just like they do. Therefore they decided to set up a franchise and make it affordable. That way, people who aspire to run their own business could pursue the dream. On the other hand, the design of pushcarts and stores were reminiscent of America’s hot dog stores. The approach was so successful that for a long time, many people had thought that 1901 is an American hot dog chain.

For the founders, the success they have achieved is just a beginning. Now, they set their sight to soar to new heights.

We share planet earth. For us to enjoy the bountiful treasures of earth, we need to value LOVE, PEACE & HARMONY. The mission and vision of 1901 will be meaningless without practicing these key values of the brand. They are an inherent part of 1901TM. Not only do we believe and internalise these values, but we also strive to externalise them to our stakeholders. There are many intrinsic values that are being sidetracked in the hustle and bustle of today. 1901TM believes in creating an oasis where the values of LOVE, PEACE & HARMONY are being practiced; in the services we provide as well as the food we serve.


In the pursuit of monetary and personal achievements, people have forgotten what it feels like to be truly joyful. Bouts of joy are being mistaken for true happiness. Time seems shorter and we find it difficult to stop & take the time to enjoy what we already have and appreciate the people around us. We constantly feel alone and unfulfilled. At 1901TM, we want every visit to be a celebration of togetherness; a place where everyone meet as friends and enjoy each other.


1901TM believes in the sanctity of the human race. Living in peace is the right of every individual. We passionately advocate activities that centre on peaceful living as well as the strengthening of human bonds.


We are living in an increasingly borderless world. The interchange of values, cultures and thoughts are happening at a greater rate. People need to learn to co-exist with each other by accommodating different thoughts, beliefs & rituals while staying true to themselves. Such accommodations for these differences are reflected in our outlets, personnel as well as our point of sale materials. We will provide more choices for our customers, while offering them our views but respecting their choices and decisions. The symbol of harmony is symbolised by the joining of two hands in goodwill and respect.


We are an active member of the Malaysian Franchise Association (MFA) and Malay Chamber of Commerce Malaysia (MCCM) registered with the Malaysian Ministry of Entrepreneurs and Corporate Development (MECD). Our business is regulated and governed by the Malaysian Franchise Act 1998. We also actively participate in events organised by Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (MATRADE) to promote the 1901TM brand.

Halal is an Arabic term meaning permissible, allowable or lawful. The term is used to describe anything permissible under Islamic law, in contrast to haram, that which is forbidden. This includes behavior, speech, dress, conduct, manner and dietary laws.

In Islam, a strong emphasis is placed on cleanliness - both spiritually (moral conduct) and in the context of food and drink. For a food or drink product to be approved for consumption it must conform to the Islamic dietary laws as specified in the Qur'an, the Hadith (sayings) of the Prophet Muhammad, his Sunnah (tradition) and in the Fiqh (understanding) of the Islamic Jurists: Hanafi, Shafi', Maliki and Hambali.

In the context of dietary laws, Halal falls in the jurisdictions of food & drinks manufacturing, management, cleanliness, safety, storage, preparation and purification.
