Local produce major key to Mayasari Indonesian Grill success

Mayasari Effendi and her husband Richard Mays together own Mayasari Indonesian Grill in Greensburg. Their restaurant features fresh, made-to-order, and authentic Indonesian Cuisine with a twist on American fare, as well.

Before becoming an entrepreneur, Maya graduated with a degree in Computer Science from Purdue University in 2006. Maya and Richard met at Valeo Engine Cooling where Richard worked for more than 23 years. In 2009, Maya went to Culinary Arts School.

Maya’s Grandma owned a restaurant in Indonesia. Maya was in her grandma’s restaurant a lot as a kid and often helped the family-run business by working there after school. She learned a lot about the restaurant business, and her grandma and mom taught her how to cook. Although it was difficult working in the restaurant so much growing up, Maya is grateful that she had the experience working at her family’s restaurant when she was little.

Maya’s mission for her business is to allow people to try cuisine from different cultures who may have never experienced diverse food. She wishes to expand her customers’ culinary experience.

Maya and Richard enjoy so much about their business. They love the looks on customers’ faces when their food arrives at their tables. Some people try Indonesian food for the first time at Maya’s restaurant and fall in love with the tasty cuisine. Maya says that her Indonesian food has layers upon layers of delicious tastes, and customers are always delighted to experience the beautifully plated, tasty food. Long hours at the restaurant make Maya’s job a little more difficult. However, she gets to work with her family, which makes it all worth it. Maya and Richard’s children enjoy helping out at the restaurant when they have the time. Maya’s older daughter works at the restaurant frequently, and loves the experience and working with her mother.
