Sometimes when I see a store being flocked by a gazillion customers (“Dolor’s Kakanin” during Christmas comes to mind), I wonder how much they will earn that day. And as I waited patiently in line to score a bilao of their famous sapin-sapin, I get lost in a daydream of having my own business (or perhaps, my own fleet of franchise businesses).
Sometimes, it generates some pretty quirky ideas. For example, a barbershop for kids where the seats are like Gundam-pilot cockpits. The sign outside will say, “Pacific Trim”.
Or I think about businesses with witty names. I saw a photo of a siomai cart in Facebook fondly called, “SioGo” or Siomai-on-the-Go. As you can imagine, the logo and theme design was heavily inspired by a “popular” local hotel. I thought it was funny.
Kidding aside, if owning a business truly excites you, we hope this massive list of business ideas can help. Let’s get started!
