How To Start a Food-Selling Business

Food is a basic necessity. People need to eat and that’s what makes food and beverages a popular business idea ever there is. Many people dream of starting their own food business but have reservations about it due to lack of funds.

But the good news is you really don’t have to start big. You may be surprised how you can utilize your own kitchen to start a home-based food-catering business. Or perhaps you can invest on a small vending cart for a start.

There shouldn’t be an issue to these types of business as long as you’re equipped with all the necessary tools (you can find great deals for a receipt printer online) and of course permission to operate from your local officials to get you going.

Remember, no matter what size your business is, it is yours. Do it right and who knows you may even progress into having your own stationary restaurant in time!

Tahô, Anyone?

Every time I hear a peddler, commonly known as Magtatahô, coming near my crib early in the morning with his buckets full of tahô, I almost always grab then my cup to buy a serving or two of tahô. In fact, it became my breakfast the past month.

 

Tahô, by the way, is one of the most common Filipino street foods made from soft tofu mixed with brown sugar and vanilla syrups. More often, the tahô is served with condensed milk and pearl sago or tapioca.

Would you believe that the peddler became my friend and every time he drops by my apartment, we sometimes talk about his tahô. One time, I asked him how to make tahô and being such a friend, he shared then. Though I haven’t grasped all of what he shared, what stayed in my mind was about the sugar they used. I threw him a joke if they already have tried using brad sugars. He just laughed at me because he knew that there were no such brands of sugars named as such. I just told him that I was just joking.

Moreover, Brad Sugars is not a brand of sugars but rather a personality, one of the most well-known men in the business world.

Getting back to tahô, accordingly, it is a good source of protein since tofu is made from soy beans or soya beans which we all knew are best source of protein.
