Neri Miranda’s Gourmet Tuyo Helped Her Expand Her Enterprise

For some of us, having a thriving business is enough, but there are also some amongst us who do not get comfortably complacent by having just one. Instead, they think of other ways to earn money. After all, as they say, the tragedy of life is often not in our failure, but rather, in our complacency.

Neri Naig-Miranda is one of those people who do not rest on her laurels but keeps on challenging herself — known online as someone who gets into a lot of business and likes to have her sources of income. As a wife and a mother, she knew that financial freedom is essential in a marriage.

Her venture into entrepreneurship started when her gourmet tuyo became a hit. Her friends loved her creation, and they kept on placing orders. She joined a local church fair where she prepared 150 bottles of her gourmet tuyo. In just two hours, all her products were sold out.

She decided to enter into serious business when a friend ordered P60,000-worth of gourmet tuyo.

Now, she owns a separate kitchen with 14 employees cooking and preparing her gourmet tuyo for distribution to supermarkets and Neri’s other business establishments, aside from the physical store in Alfonso, Cavite.

The beddings and the accessories’ business

When she already earned from her gourmet tuyo business, she decided to get into other business. She chose to resell linens and fashion accessories online. When these two also took off, she launched an online ukayan. In less than a year, she was able to open a physical store for her second-hand imports from the United States.

A bed-and-breakfast

Chito, Neri’s husband, bought a piece of land in Alfonso, Cavite so Neri can build her gourmet tuyo kitchen. However, Neri saw a different business opportunity for the said property. In 2017, she started a bed-and-breakfast business which she rents out for P3,500 a night.

A bakeshop

Another gift from her husband inspired Neri to build another business. After receiving an industrial oven from her husband, she decided to open a bakery. Now with two branches in Alfonso, Cavite and in Tagaytay, Neri’s Bakeshop is selling an average of 500 pieces of bread a day.

A café

The most recent business venture of Neri is a café in Laurel, Batangas. It is a small quaint nook overlooking a garden. Different musicians perform here every night.

As of the moment, Neri’s Not So Secret Garden is open for customers, but the garden is only exclusive for those who reserved for dinner.

Neri’s advice

Neri was able to put up all these businesses from the earnings she got from the sales of her gourmet tuyo. How was she able to do this?

She intends to grow her business by pouring their income back into them. She does not splurge on material things or spend it on vacation. Putting your plans into action is the first towards achieving them. Be fearless, but take calculated and educated risks.
