Small business is getting even more and more in demand right now. The Philippines is having an economic boom but at the same time, job losses are happening left and right. Most people who have lost their jobs are looking into entrepreneurship. Here are some small business ideas in the Philippines.
Food trucks have been hugely popular at the United States and China, catering to the hungry people in the streets. These are also starting to become more recognized here in the Philippines and in neighboring Asian countries. Prime examples are Mama Liu’s food trucks and Réveille Coffee Co. which cater to hungry people of the US.
Food trucks have started to sprout in the Philippines too. An example is Kuyang food carts which is making waves in the Metro. If you want to check if food truck is the business for you, you can join a food cart event held by Metro Manila Food Truck Association.
Many of us need that little helping hand in having a particular task done. For example, we need a pet sitter for two days while we are away on a vacation or we need someone to send a package to someone because we are too busy with our jobs. The premise of a miscellaneous service business is simple: you can hire people to do certain tasks in exchange for their fixed time. A popular service in this concept is Errand Boys, which was featured in Rated K.
Pet Lodging and Pet Sitting
Speaking of services for pets, pet sitting and pet lodging are hugely popular in Metro Manila. Many Filipinos have dogs and cats but we cannot bring them to vacations, right? Pet lodging and pet sitting are two different services that offer solutions for these. Pet sitting primarily is a mobile business, where people can ask for someone to go to their house and take care of their pets for them. Pet lodging offers the same concept, but people will bring their furry babies to the shop, along with other animals of the same species (dogs and cats are separate). It is like a mini vacation for your beloved Bantay or Muning. Good example is The Dog Spa.
Of course it is here. Food carts are still going strong and is probably here to stay. Food is a primary need for Filipinos; and food stops are always be a lucrative business because Pinoys are always on-the-go. The typical working Pinoy is always busy or rushing, forgetting to bring beverage under the hot sun or forgetting breakfast. Food stalls are a nice small business for the budget conscious.
