Get your Pie on with the launch of Massive Munchies at Quiapo, Manila


HISTORY

After six months of being an employee, Mr. Timothy Davis F. Angara decided to open up a business of his own. About four years ago, during his birthday, his grandmother gave him a little capital to start with, but unfortunately, he had no idea as to the type of  business he’ll undertake. Mr. John Dexter Bautista, who’s a good friend of Mr. Angara,helped him come up with food business. with the capital of Mr. Angara and the knowledge on food of Mr. Bautista, they decided to make their own product, the pocket pie, and sold it near the third gate of St. Paul’s University Dumaguete  St. Paul’s branch, little by little, they enhanced their product and increased the price. They also created other flavors to entice more customers. Years after, they decided to distribute some of their products to Kiosks in Silliman University. Fortunately, their products became profitable and so they decided to extend their operations in a mall.
In view of the fact that the business is getting bigger, they decided to obtain a loan from a credit company to make things formal and legal. They acquired the necessary permits and documentation and started their legit operations on September 2014 at Robinson’s Mall Dumaguete. Since it’s a "ber"  month, their sales had rocketed up to two to three times than expected. With the great amount of profit they have, they decided to open up a main store at Dr. 5. Locsin Street, Dumaguete city in February 2015. The store served as the main office and as an avenue for exhibiting their products.

Invitation

A surprising invitation to join at Isabelle de Hidalgo Building #986 FR HIDALGO ST, QUIAPO MANILA 1001 #986 FR HIDALGO ST, QUIAPO MANILA 1001 for the launching of Massive Munchies invited by Ms. Gracy Fernandez thru Facebook. It was then that the schedule was supposedly for 7pm at that moment I felt a sense of depression as it would conflict my schedules when suddenly, Ms. Gracy had informed that the time is moved to 11:30 to 12:00 pm, receiving this news made me overjoyed as I can now proceed on the location immediately after work with no worries on mind. It is then that I learned and researched of the Company's humble beginnings and success which had inspired me. It is such short notice but nothing shall stop me from witnessing such momentous event. As usual these new schedules are a big challenge for me as I had been on shifting schedules with my work, before and after hours meetings and business engagements, whew! That surely is one busy girl! but I never felt so fulfilled my entire life as I now am able to make all my dreams come true, my only problem is of course time, most of the time I would wish that I have super capabilities or like a vampire as described with Stephen Meyer, beautiful, with incredible powers, doesn't needs sleep but hell beautiful in the eyes of many. The social part is understandable, I am having hard time catching up with my friends from schools or social medias because of this lifestyle. Although, I would still keep in touch as I can when time allows. Moving on, so for this event, it will be like a Hunter Exam in Hunter X Hunter as I have to survive and make it on time.
