Kikku, at 2336 Tulare St., was chosen from five finalists for a makeover worth $25,000. The makeover includes a $2,500 prize for supplies and materials; a marketing, branding and digital ad campaign; and help with drywall, interior design, flooring and the restaurant exterior.
More than 2,000 members of the public and a panel of judges chose the winner.
Silvia Wahyudi said she’s especially looking forward toward replacing their 14-year-old menu board and getting new signs outside.
“We don’t have visible signage,” she said. “People always say our place is hidden.”
She and her husband Andri have run Kikku — which has no connection to nearby Kiku Floral —for 14 years.
