We Made It! We revisit some of the food biz owners we’ve featured in the past and see how far they’ve come
Over the years, we’ve featured a lot of food businesses. All of them have been built on passion (not to mention excellent quality), but only a few stand the test of time. We invited some of our favorites to an intimate party, to revisit their stories and celebrate their successes.
The food business is a crowded business. When entrepreneurs decide to start something up, they’re most likely to choose food because it sounds like a sure bet—don’t all Pinoys love to eat? But it’s an ever-changing and fickle industry, and not even quality will guarantee success. When a business survives for many years, it’s a cause for celebration for all of us: The owners can revel in their success, and we consumers welcome the fact that they’ve become a part of our lives.
