Javanese Fried Chicken: MBOK BEREK

This is a carton box label for ayam goreng.
"Ayam goreng" means Fried chicken.
"Mbok Berek" is the famous Javanese-fried-chicken-cooker in Jogjakarta, Central Java, Indonesia (like Colonel Sanders in U.S.) and it's probably become an icon. 
If we talk about Javanese fried chicken we have to talk about Mbok Berek. Pugeran is the address.
But there were 2 different name: Ny. Pawiro Dikoro and Ny. Kadarmiyatun Sudarman. 
The question is: Who is the real owner of this fried chicken? But times go on and there are no patent crises.
