Considered as one of the best refreshing desserts in the country, halo-halo is a combination of various ingredients like boiled sweet beans, makapuno, sago, tubers, fruits as well as shaved ice and evaporated milk.
Many Filipinos commonly sell halo-halo during summer season for extra income. But since the well-loved Pinoy dessert is craved all year round, many businessmen have found fortune in such kind of business.
Dubbed as the “Halo-Halo ng Pilipinas:, Razon’s halo-halo is probably the most popular in the country. Interestingly, the trademark halo-halo of Razon’s restaurant only consists of three ingredients namely saging na saba, macapuno and leche flan. Still, customers go crazy for it because of its softness and creaminess. From a small eatery inside a subdivision in Guagua, Pampanga, Razon’s has grown into a chain of restaurants in a number of shopping malls in Metro Manila and some parts of Luzon.
If you wish to launch a home-based halo-halo business, make sure that your price is affordable for the masses and that you use your own unique recipe to stand out from others. If you think your home-based business is doing well, you may opt to position your business in high density areas in the future.
