Filipinos are being more “open-minded” when it comes to building their own business. Particularly on employees who wants to retire early and OFW who wants to earn money here in the Philippines and be with their loved ones.
That’s why home services like car wash, aircon cleaning, pet grooming and even personal wellness services will also grab a piece of the spotlight because of its demand to consumers. And after the Ice Scramble, Siomai, Milk Tea, Waffle, Shawarma, and the Mango Graham craze, more original brands with new food concepts will crop up for more aspirant Franchisee and Entrepreneurs.
However, some were still left behind, particularly the Micro, Small and Medium-sized Entrepreneurs (MSMEs), don’t know how to start right with their business ventures. Not to mention the fast-paced evolution of technology in the lives of people and businesses around the world, some brands were able to adapt.
