Nagaland’s First Bike Food Stall; 3 cousins making a difference

Dimapur, August 29 (NE): Nagaland’s First Bike Food Stall “Fusion Bytez” is an inspiring story of 3 cousins from Dimapur, making a difference in Nagaland.

The 3 youths creating their future and inspiring many people not only in Nagaland but also beyond the region are Hika Zhimomi, Pito Zhimomi and Sukito Swu.

Hika Zhimomi is a 10th pass who worked in Bangalore for 5 years and returned with a good amount of experience while Pito Zhimomi is from a theological background and not having anyone to sponsor his further studies, he works to support himself through this business and Sukito Swu is a college student pursuing B.Sc in St. John college Dimapur. He is also supporting his studies and learning the art of hard labor.

We three cousins staying under the same roof thought of doing something new which would not only profit us but also encourage the youths as well, so having put all our thoughts together and also getting some ideas from the things we saw in other places we came up with this food bike.

The main inspiration behind this whole journey were the struggles of our parents who hardly have a proper job to do and took so much pain in raising us, the only aim was to make them proud and yes, we are halfway there.

Avenger cruise 220 bike is being used, which was bought in installment and modified as Food Bike Stall by themselves. The Trio said; “This took us more time than it would have taken if it were done by an experienced fabricators”. The Food Bike Stall was inaugurated on August 14, 2019.

Our usual place for the stall is near City Tower right in front of Bajaj motors, Dimapur. We open up at 5:30 pm till 10:00 pm.

The main item we have is the twisted potato (tornado) which is the talk of the Town. We also serve varieties of barbeque i.e chicken drumsticks, wings, boneless strips, pork and also BBQ burger, BBQ rolls, BBQ prawns, BBQ pineapple.

We are getting a very good response from the customers. We have our daily customers who come and not only eat but also have a good conversation with us, encourage us and boost our confidence everytime they visit us. Customers also pre order through phones and we have people coming all the way from 3rd Mile and 4th mile.

Speaking to NagalandExpress the trio says “We are from poor and middle class families and we can’t just sit idle and curse ourselves for being poor. We needed to make a change and the change is us. We work and eat and that is more than enough for us to be proud of ourselves.”

No work is big or small and there is nothing embarrassing in doing this kind of job. Instead of just wasting our precious time looking for a government job, we can start up with this kind of business while preparing for competitive exams, paving our way.
