  • The community quarantine has seen families opening home businesses to cope with the new normal. They’ve turned empty lots into vegetable gardens, became online resellers, and sold yummy food and baked goods. Now, one family is showing us how to open a mobile café!

    John Eric Enopia, a coffee roaster and technical specialist, saw the opportunity to open a mobile café in the open area where he and his bike group would usually go for a ride. “Nung first run namin, sold out lahat ng produkto, may naghahanap pa,” he shares in an interview with Summit Original Videos.

    He adds, “Nung second run, naghanap ako ng place na maraming tao — may place dito, maraming nag-jo-jogging, nag-e-exercise, nag-zu-Zumba. Ang ganda ng feedback, sold out rin kami.”

    He and his wife, Sheng, opened the business, which they called The Cooking Dad Bake and Brew, with a startup capital of Php5,000. They produced (and sold) three pieces of cassava cake and two bottles of cold brew coffee.

    John explains that every member of their family has a specific task for the business. John takes care of baking, brewing, and selling the products, while Sheng, who is an accounting manager, takes care of money matters. Their two kids, Shayne and Uno, are in charge of managing the donations for Save the Children Philippines, where 10 percent of their earnings go.

    “Yung mga kids ko gusto nila aside from earning on our part is to share,” John says. “[Save the Children is] helping those unfortunate kids para makapag-aral at makatulong.”

    Though their business has just started, John is happy that they are slowly becoming popular through word of mouth — people are commending the quality of their food and drinks — and there are a lot of individuals who also support their advocacy. “Sa gitna ng pandemic, may mga tao talagang handing tumulong. Parang ginawa lang kaming instrument for them para makapag-donate,” John says.
