“Typhoon ka lang, Negosyanteng Pinoy kami”
Owning a small business has never been easy to manage, no matter where in the world you are.
Typhoon Ulysses hit the Philippines yesterday, the superstorm displaced, cut off electricity to, stranded commuters, and ultimately affected, more than 250,000 people nationwide.
If you are encountering this kind of situation; typhoons or a pandemic, or prayers go out to you.
The large chains, either wouldn’t or in many areas couldn’t service the communities.
However, local small business entrepreneurs stepped and took care of their communities, even if that meant food delivery by boat.
CL Burgers, though their safety is at high risk, they took to the boats, or dinghys, to ensure that they cared for locked in families.
The big chains, such as Mc’Do and Pizza Hut, either would not answer, could not be reached due to internet outages, or, would not take the risk.
#SupportLocal is our new hashtag, to support the local entrepreneurs who support us.
Let’s not forget them when the typhoon or pandemic is over, when the water is gone, and the sun shines again.
Let’s not forget those who took care of us when no one else did.
Local small business entrepreneurs are the life-blood of every community. Entrepreneurs, like CJ’s Burgers; and even Black Scoop who donated millions in food and supplies when the covid-19 pandemic hit.
