After nine years of nurturing her modest enterprise, Bettina has now truly come into her own and has become a full-fledged, full-time businesswoman. In fact, she is now thinking of opening more branches for her Gourmet Corner, what she describes as a Pinoy sari-sari store offering healthy, ready-to-eat dishes and other products. The store at the San Antonio Plaza in Forbes Park also carries a variety of products from different parts of Metro Manila, even the Philippines.
Gourmet Corner sells frozen vegetarian dishes and healthy snacks, as well as continental foods. It sells artisanal yogurt, different kinds of longganisa, other regional delicacies and imported items. The late-blooming businesswoman says she is “helping many microentrepreneurs who cook in their homes.”
