 Did you know that for as low as P50,000 you can be an entrepreneur? Yeah! Stallmart Inc. made it possible. Stallmart Inc. established by the group of experts in 2012 and the brain behind more than 30 years, and still counting, success of Mister Donut. The company was founded to address the growing demand for high-profit-low-investment businesses such as stalls and kiosks. That’s why for as low as P50,000 you can start and run your own business.

Meanwhile, Stallmart Inc. held a bloggers conference few weeks ago and Bubbly Fluffy was one of the invited bloggers to be part of that blog-con. It was an awesome afternoon of learning and motivation on how to put up your own kiosk without any hassle at all as their creative and innovative ideas always comes up with a success. Michelle Pino, Senior Franchising and Key Accounts Operations Manager, shared how interesting and affordable Stallmart’s food carts and kiosks were, on which you can place anywhere – bazaars, events, LRT & MRT stations, malls and even on a street where a huge number of passerby can be seen.

Franchising is a big trend in local entrepreneurship and this is apparent with the influx of different franchise brands in the Philippines. There are quite a few benefits to franchising as opposed to starting a business venture from scratch. First on the list, of course, is name recognition. As seen especially in monopolies such as the food industry wherein numerous players in the market offer generally the same products, consumers tend to gravitate towards brands that are familiar to them.

In light of this, Stallmart recently launched three new food cart brands—ThirTea, Fold N’ Roll, and Little Mexico to help entrepreneurs enter the food cart business.

ThirTea aims to provide the best milk tea experience especially for consumers’ on-the-go, offering pocket-friendly milk variants. Thir-tea because for as low as P35 you can have your fad and thirst-quencher tea, a healthier alternative to coffee. Winter melon and Taro milk tea flavors are also available.

Stallmart Inc. also offers Fold N’ Roll, the New York-style folded pizza version. Now, you can taste the famous folded pizza at a very affordable price and variety of flavors is also available.

 Little Mexico, on the other hand, brings a taste of Mexico through bite-sized tacos, nachos, and burritos which to be launched early next year, drafting it on the first quarter of the year, because as of now, they are still on the food-tasting phase just to ensure that they will provide the best quality taste tacos, nachos and burritos. Just to add, we also tried these and I can say that the salsa was flavorful.  
 Meanwhile, Stallmart’s known and popular food cart like Siomai Central and Tik-Tok are can be seen around the metro.
 Siomai Central food cart has a beautiful design, it was like a temple.

One of the Tik-tok’s food carts is in MRT Ayala Station. So if you notice a long line, well, better to take a look at it as it is not for MRT Tickets but people who wanted to savor Tik-Tok foods where you can have it for as low as P10.

I wish I’m able to enlighten you with how Stallmart Inc. able to provide an affordable food carts and kiosks with high return of investment. 

To date, Stallmart has over 90 franchised stores and continues to add more outlets. For more information, visit or you may reach us at (02) 370-1236 or

Eating out doesn’t mean that you need to eat unhealthy. Fresh, healthy entrees are often packed with flavor, can help to trim your waistline, and will leave you feeling great. Take a look at sites like for information on how certain restaurants can help you to eat better by cooking with fresh, natural ingredients. There are also a number of simple things to keep in mind the next time you are eating out.

Choose Your Meal Beforehand
Look up the restaurant’s menu online before you go so that you can find the best option for your diet and to make sure you don’t get swayed by words like “fried, alfredo, gravy, and parmesan” once you are at the restaurant. Choose menu options that rely primarily on ingredients like olive oil, fresh herbs, and seasonal ingredients for more flavor without the calories. Items that are laden with butter or cream can quickly pack on the calories.

Try Vegetarian
If you don’t normally eat vegetarian cuisine, consider giving it a try the next time you eat out. Many people feel nervous about cooking and experimenting with vegetarian ingredients, so have a pro do it for you. Having a chef passionately create a vegetarian or vegan dish for you can be a unique culinary experience and allow you to eat more vegetables and whole foods. Seafood is also a healthier option and can reduce your intake of fattier, higher calorie foods like pork and red meat.

Drink Water or Wine
Many people don’t realize how much of their calorie intake is due to liquid calories. Stick to water or one glass of wine to reduce your calorie intake and give your body a healthy boost. This is especially the case if you will be ordering dessert. Spending 100 calories or more on a beverage can make a big difference when you are planning on eating dessert as well.

Look for Authentic Cuisine

Enjoy unique creations made of fresh, whole foods at your favorite restaurant. Look for authentic cuisine, like that found on These restaurants tend to rely less on preservatives and artificial ingredients and more on natural produce and herbs.
