A businesswoman shared how she was able to grow her small business into earning over P800,000 a week. Lorlaine Camungol of Sundae Bites has found success by selling chocolate cone tips.
The chocolate cone tips are a unique dessert and snack idea. These are bite-sized waffle cone tips filled with chocolate ganache. Lorlaine recalled that her business began when she and her daughter had a craving for some sweets. Since they couldn’t easily order the sundae cone they wanted, they decided to make one instead.
“Nakita namin ng daughter ko yung imported sundae cone pero ang hirap orderin. Kaya naisip ko na kami na lang gumawa,” Lorlaine shared on GMA’s Pera Paraan.
Lorlaine took the tips of some of her waffle cones at home and filled it with chocolate. After posting her creation on social media, she was surprised that many of her friends were interested in it. The smart mompreneur took that as an opportunity to earn.
According to Lorlaine, their initial capital was only around P3,000 for the chocolates. From making chocolate cone tips in her kitchen, Lorlaine now has a production area and an office. They also have a huge following of distributors and resellers eager for their products. The proud owner said they can earn as much as P800,000 a week.
Lorlaine’s Sundae Bites has six fillings you can choose from: White chocolate, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, strawberry, matcha and cookies and cream.
According to the businesswoman, she feels blessed that she gets to help other individuals have jobs amid the pandemic. Now that their business is doing well, Lorlaine said she hopes many would grab the chance to earn. “Maraming resellers na kahit nasa bahay lang sila ay kumikita sila,” she said. As their business expanded, Lorlaine also hired workers and employees in their production area who are working students.

With her success, Lorlaine encouraged aspiring entrepreneurs to be determined in their goals. She added that business success is a mixture of prayer and hard work.
“Nilalakasan ko lang ang loob ko. Kahit anong pagsubok man yang dumaan, kakayanin natin basta lang may dasal at tiyaga talaga,” she advised.
