There is often a saying in the Philippines want to make a small fortune in the Philippines start with a big one. In reality a lot of is down to the way the country functions but also the fact the way people spend their money. Investing heavily in a restaurant for example may not pay off purely because even a McDonalds is too expensive for the majority of people especially on a regular basis. But this is where a lot of people go wrong because no point investing heavily in a building that you “lease the land on” or going over the top with decor for local people generally they aren’t bothered. I don’t here people whining about mosquito’s or the heat especially when it comes to price! E.g. air con restaurant and pay twice as much for a burger or sitting outside 9/10 saving money comes first. This is why this restaurant works and sits opposite one of the biggest shopping malls in Cebu,Philippines. Its within walking distance of the port so obvious where all the shipping container panels came from but as you can see serves its purpose even if its not pretty.
