Franchising Binalot is quite ideal. In this fast paced life that Filipinos lead, most of us tend to forget just what it means to live a comfortable life in the most traditional way. We eat at restaurants with our food placed in Styrofoam containers. Some are made poorly and the food that we consume tastes less than what we are accustomed to. The Western culture has instilled itself to us in just any way possible. It’s a great thing then that most restaurants aren’t swayed and has proved that they can hold their own when it comes to serving food in the Filipino way.
Binalot has been in the fast food market since 1996. A bunch of friends realized that the Filipino food can compete with just any type of food out there. They tend started Binalot and have started franchising it. Their inspiration led to the discovery of an age old but clever Filipino way of dining – food served in banana leaves. They started operating from a stall in Shaw. Now, they have blossomed into 37 stores, 10 of which are franchise stores.
