Not all but mostly, or it depends, as the successful business operations regarding street foods for the masses always depending upon the location of the improvised carts.
Philippine Street Food Traditional Business for the masses such as Kikiam, Fishballs, Siomai, Siopao, Pizza Pie, Hotdog on Stick, Hamburger, Shawarma, Hotcake, Sago, Halo-Halo, and too plenty to mention it all.
Franchising that reaches from 500,000 Philippine pesos up to 1,000,000 or more. Actually, currently, I started franchising street food with a trade business name of JACK EATABLES of Filtrepreneur, for I think and I am sure, it is the very lowest or cheapest franchising fee that I know here in the Philippines just for 26,888 Philippine pesos.
Filtrepreneur offers JACK EATABLES selling Fishballs (flat or round), Kikiam, Squidballs, Orlian, Tempura, etc… mostly, foods that are very saleable and preferred by the Filipino street food eaters or consumers.
Filipino’s really loved to eat street foods especially sold by those sidewalk vendors.
Filtrepreneur not only offers Jack’s Eatables but they also offer PINOY PAO (selling street food like Siopao in different varieties), JOPAY SIOMAI (selling street food siomai in different categories), BURGEROO (sells different types of hamburgers), and many more to select (comes in different franchising fee).
If your street food cart business located in exactly outside the school gate, then you are very lucky among the most luckiest sidewalk food vendor seller.
But my food cart business only located not outside the school gate but it is located out side the SM Supermart (entrance gate) as well as exit gate, and I think it is also a good location.
I’m trying to venture to a different type of traditional selling and see to it if I’m lucky here or not.
You could not evade other competent companies that sells street vendor foods like those of the same food you sell…
HUNGRY NINJA that sells fishball 5 pieces for only 8 Philippine pesos… (they sell big fishballs, although very cheap and very affordable but too soft fishball to eat and its not my type)
SHOOTI that sells fishball 3 pieces for only 16 Philippine pesos… (the structure of their fishball is exactly the same like of mine, but very pricey I think)
But my JACK’S EATABLE, I sell fishball in 8 pieces for only 14 Philippine pesos…
Here are the examples url address of the Jack’s Eatable that I mean:
It is also featured in Philippine local television GMA channel (in Filipino language)
I use a Multi-Purpose deep fry cooker (electric power driven) and not a Shellane or Gas type.
The only advantage of a Gas Stove is you can sell street food fishball and etc. to a certain area where there’s a big event that happens where there are very plenty of people that gather’s together, like Dinagyang Festival or Fiesta in different towns.
