Entrepreneurship is demand for young people. Nowadays young people want to do something for themselves and the nation. Ayon is one of those young people who is dreaming a lot. From his childhood, his dream was to become an entrepreneur.

R.M. Jaber Hossen Ayon, a student of the Government Bangla College, has been a successful entrepreneur in the Aristocratical Restaurant business. Although he was born in Cox’s Bazar, Chittagong, he currently lives in Dhaka.

He has been known as a young entrepreneur to everyone for his several restaurant businesses and e-commerce businesses. At first, he started his business with AFC Chinese & Restaurant, Burger Zone, Tehri Mastan, but now his successful venture is Dream Cafe.

When he was asked about his business, R.M. Jaber Hossen Ayon said, “Before I started the business I had only one thought in my mind that I have to do something. That’s why my family has supported me enough. My childhood dream was to never get a job but to give people job opportunities. I will be an entrepreneur myself. That’s why I used to do then in 2020, I started Dream Cafe. Currently, it can be called a fairly successful initiative of mine.”

Ayon further said, “When I came to Dhaka in 2014, the plan was to do business. But I was hesitant to do what to do. At one stage, I would not have a decision to trade. After finalizing this decision, I started the restaurant business.” He also said, “In the first capital, I started the ‘AFC Restaurant’ with seven lakhs Taka, but I sold it after a few years. Then in 2020, I started ‘Dream Cafe.’ There is another restaurant called ‘Cloud Kitchen.’ I only sell Tehri here. This business is conducted online.”

Ayon said, “I started ‘Dream Cafe’ with only 12 employees. But the hope is to get a lot of buyers. We try to provide good food according to the needs of the buyers. Only customers do not come to eat in the Dream Cafe, there are five photo corners to take pictures as well as a kid's zone. Children can enjoy themselves in the Kid’s zone. That is why there is a crowd of customers all the time.” About the plans, Ayon said, “We want to make the company bigger and give job opportunities to more people. There is also a running project of mine called ‘Easy Mart.’ It is an e-commerce business.  This allows buyers to order everything they need at home.”
