Business, both new and old, must adjust to the reality of the post-pandemic economic landscape as cities begin to switch to the more lenient general community quarantine. For instance, many businesses have moved away from office work and toward remote employment, with the majority of employees now working from home. Additionally, people now primarily use internet services to fulfill their desires and requirements, with some eventually preferring them to traditional physical stores.


That doesn’t mean, though, that physical stores are obsolete; as shown by the number of customers who visited malls and other stores that have begun phasing in reopenings, they are still very much alive and well. However, the ways in which these businesses conduct their operations have been significantly altered by social distance metrics. For instance, businesses are urged to adopt contactless payment methods, and employees are now expected to wear protective equipment.

Mini-groceries and convenience stores-diarynigracia


More Filipinos are opting to stock up on groceries and prepare their meals at home as a result of numerous dine-in and take-out companies closing down during the quarantine period.

Franchise Fee – from PHP 200,000 to PHP 1,000,000; Total Investment needed – from PHP 3,000,000 to PHP 5,000,000 varies depending on the brand name, size of the store, and inventory.
