Vendor of street-style Pinoy mami earns P100k a day, from P2k capital


Street foods are more than just cheaper foods as they say. Because these days, the street food business has become one of the most lucrative and successful business ventures of many Filipinos like Jim delos Santos who earn his fortune from selling street-style mami pares.

Mang Jim's mamihan is always a blockbuster because of its tasty broth, noodles, and tender meat that people would definitely not forget.

According to the business owner, he started his mami business on a tricycle. He usually roams around the streets while pushing his kariton to sell his delicious mami.

“Nagsimula po ako sa kariton. Galing Cavite ay niluwas ko pa sa Maynila. Mula sa kariton, nakabili ako ng sidecar,” Mang Jim shared on GMA’s Pera Paraan.

Later on, many people flock to his food cart to taste his famous mami. To accommodate the number of customers that he is receiving everyday, Mang Jim persevered to open his own mami house.

Now, his place is famously called “maming tayo” because customers are literally standing while eating their hot mami. In spite of the mami house having no chairs, many people still visit it to order some food. 

Mang Jim recalled that he started his mami business with only a capital of P2,000. With hardwork and, of course, delicious mami recipe, he is now earning P100,000 a day. 

Helping others Despite his success, Mang Jim has remained humble. He said he doesn’t buy expensive things and would rather help those in need. Coming from a life of poverty, he knows the value of money and wants to extend a help hand to others. “Ang perang ito ay pinapadaan lang ng Diyos sa akin para makatulong sa kapwa,” he said.
