There are lot a food cart business in the Philippines. Some are a hit and some are a miss. If you want to venture into this option, it would be very wise to conduct a business study first. Check what foods would be a hit in your area. Choose to franchise the products that have already been established in name and brands in the market. However, if you franchise a food cart, you will just be a seller of the product and not the real business owner. So if you really want to establish yourself out there, you can create your own food cart with your own products. If you have an old recipe from your grandmother about the best halo halo, tacos, Chinese dumplings, and any other food recipe, then create your own with your own twist. If your products are great, then you can even franchise this and be a franchiser for everyone who wants to venture into your food cart business.

Most households here in the Philippines don’t have personal computers in their homes, much more the Internet. So if you want to venture into the Internet cafĂ© business, it would be wise to find an Internet provider that would suit your needs for speed. Also, having an Internet cafe for computers alone needs a lot of capital depending on the number of units you want to purchase. Some business owners install “PISO-NET” and leave the units in some stores. This computer is programmed to operate on the amount of money you put in its box.
