Broadcast journalist Karen Davila details the inspiring story of how an entrepreneur rode out tough times after his entire business was destroyed by typhoon Ondoy in 2009 this Wednesday (Nov 13) on ABS-CBN’s “My Puhunan.”
Joel Estoperez started producing siopao, siomai, lumpiang shanghai, wanton and dried noodles in 2008 under “Pingloy Enterprises.” “Pingloy” was doing well, until a year later, typhoon Ondoy ravaged everything he ever worked for.
With the help of Department of Science and Technology (DOST), “Pingloy” was able to get back on track and now caters to a clientele that includes the country’s biggest companies and fast food chains. “Pingloy” also supplies thousands of pieces of siopao, siomai at noodles everyday and earns more than P150,000 a month.
In the episode, Joel shares how he managed to grow his business and offers tips to those who want to get into the food business.
Karen also features actor Carlo Aquino’s food truck business “Big Bite Avenue.” This year, Carlo and his girlfriend opened their restaurant-on-wheels that serves a variety of burgers and fries.
