1. Sell ‘tapsilogs’ or all-day breakfast meals

The great thing about all-day breakfast meals is that they are very easy to prepare, and you can also source the supplies. Tapsilogs, tocilog, and many others often require simple cooking. They are also easy to start since you only need a small amount of capital, and they are easy to sell since they are affordable. In fact, one inspiring story about this is about a nurse who doesn’t know how to cook but was able to build a successful tapsihan business.

2. Sell pre-packaged snacks

You can sell repacked “kutkutin” or pre-packaged snacks like nuts, dried fruits, popcorn, chips, or cookies to customers looking for quick and convenient snacks. You can look for suppliers or sources of your products from local or online sellers. You can even make your own snacks if you know how to play around with basic kitchen equipment.

3. Sell sauces

Sauces are often underrated but lucrative business ideas. You can make and sell your own sauces like salsa, pesto, barbecue, hot sauce, or marinade to customers who want to add some flavor to their dishes. You can use fresh and natural ingredients and create your own recipes or search for great recipes online.

4. Sell meal kits

This one is creative and can be a big hit for busy people who only want quick and easy-to-prepare meals. To do this, create small meal kits that already have pre-portioned ingredients and easy-to-follow instructions. Customers can cook small meals without the hassle of shopping and chopping. You can grow this business by focusing on a certain cuisine, dietary preferences, and more. You can even offer this on a subscription box basis.

5. Sell beverages

If you want to avoid food, go for beverages! Create a menu for coffee, milk tea, and other beverages. Research online or experiment for the best recipes. The opportunities for the beverage business seem unlimited if you know where to look.

There you go! These are just a few food business ideas for non-cooks. Remember that you can turn your love of food into a profitable venture with some creativity, passion, and hard work.
