Marrybrown Sdn Bhd (doing business as Marrybrown) is a Malaysian-based halal-certified fast food restaurant chain established in 1981. It was the first local fast food chain to franchise its business in Malaysia with more than 138 restaurants locally.[1] Marrybrown has over 350 international outlets serving fried chicken, burgers, finger food, desserts, and beverages aside from serving Malaysian local dishes such as seafood, rice-based products, noodles and porridge. The Malaysian national rice dish, nasi lemak became the feature list on the menu as 'Nasi Marrybrown'.[2]

History[edit]

Marrybrown began at a small shoplot in Wong Ah Fook Street, Johor Bahru in 1983, founded by Chinese couple Dato Lawrence Liew and Datin Nancy Liew. At the time, US-based fast-food chains had already been dominating the Malaysian fast food markets, having been in the country 10 years earlier.[3] This led the couple to invent their own ideas based on Malaysian food-taste, as well to revive Malaysia's first fast food chain especially with the Muslim majority country that always seeking for halal-Western foods.
