The seed was planted during one doctor’s miserable late-night search for medicine. Seven years later, it has blossomed into Apotek K-24, the fastest-growing drugstore brand in Indonesia.

“I could not sleep because of the flu,” said Gideon Hartono, a medical doctor, of that fateful night.

“I saw in the newspaper there was a drugstore that was open 24 hours. I went there, but it turned out there was no one on standby. I had to wait. The price of the medicine that I needed was also more expensive late at night.”

The less-than-satisfactory experience prompted Gideon to start his own drugstore chain.

The business plan for Apotek K-24? Stay open at all times and offer a guaranteed complete stock of medicines at fixed prices, regardless of the time of day or night.

“K refers to komplit , or complete, which explains that our drugstores have a complete supply of medicine and multivitamins, and 24 refers to our stores being open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, even on public holidays,” he said.

Gideon graduated from Gajah Mada University in Yogyakarta in 1990, and worked as a civil service doctor at the Health Department for 17 years before deciding to start Apotek K-24.

The chain has 165 outlets across the country, including more than 50 in Greater Jakarta, and ranks third nationally in total outlets.

- Hey Andrea & Renata, I am Biz’s older sister and was in she and Bryan’s wedding. I just wanted to tell you guys that you were some of the best photographers I’ve ever had the pleasure of encountering at a wedding. You guys added so much joy and laughter to the day and were so efficient and quick. It was lovely to have met you both. These engagement pictures are excellent, and I cannot wait to see the wedding photos as well. I only wish I had known about you guys when I got married two years ago. God bless you and your families. All four of your children are beautiful, and it was fun to see them during the wedding weekend as well. I have no doubt that God has big things in store for your photography! Love in Christ, Melody
