For August, Entrepreneur.com.ph is featuring Divisoria, one of the city of Manila’s most popular destinations and recognizable landmarks. For many, “Divi” is the marketplace for everything from food to electronics, all at bargain prices. For resourceful and money-savvy entrepreneurs, it’s a suppliers’ haven.
Looking around at groceries and department stores, one will notice just how expensive kitchenware and utensils have become. And all thoughts of starting your own catering, carinderia, or canteen business bursts like a bubble.
How can you compete competitively when the kitchenware alone will cost an arm and a leg?
Divisoria has the alternative for you. Entrepreneur.com.ph dropped by one of the most popular sources of kitchenware and utensils in the area: Sto. Cristo St. The area is famous for its shops that specialize in equipment used in the food business.
One of those shops is New Chuan Huat Glassware housed in an old two story building that offers some of the most comprehensive kitchenware in the area from woks to cauldrons, to ceramics and even tureens.
Click on the image gallery below to see more products and prices from New Chuan Huat Glassware store. This will give you an idea of how much it would cost you to start your own food business.
