In 2017, many celebrities started having cake business. They competed in getting as many people as possible to try their product. With many celebrities selling food items, civilians also become interested in trying the products made by their favorite stars. Other than cakes, they are also selling modern foods or traditional foods.

One of the restaurants owned by celebrities, that becomes a favorite is Geprek Bensu, owned by Ruben Onsu. The restaurant has opened many branches in different parts of Indonesia.

Many people believe that the shops or restaurants become popular among people because of the celebrities’ popularity. They believe that the customers only come because they are fans of them. However, it is not always true. Not all businesses owned by celebrities can become successful. Some of them are said to have little customers and some even went bankrupt.
