French food and bakery and viennoiserie


Recommended Posts

A man who says: " I have been able to make crusty bread and excellent croissants even in Madagascar, Seychelles, Cambodia, Thaïland, and Panglao, why not in Cebu ? And apart from this, bakery etc, he is an excellent cook, a gourmet. Used to find which product to make on any specific market. To make it, pack and sell it to shops, restaurants.

 

as usual in the Philippines, what he says, and what he's actually done are going to be in all probability two markedly different things. If your prospective partner really has been all that successful in setting up boulangeries elsewhere, why would he need to involve someone else this time?

Because he is retired now. 70y. old frenchman, but still "green", good health. Forming people and creating micro-projects in third-world countries was his job. And he also had his small or bigger entreprises: bakery, restaurants, hôtel, etc... He gives help for free now, just because he cannot stay without doing something. He has three hobbies: cooking, making and using wood-ovens, and smoking meats.

One more asshole asking for help...a frenchman, this time ...I hope I will be member of the "bashing team" later...

 

Dear ancients,

 

I am 54y old, have money to create a french bakery-viennoiserie-chocolaterie in a nice mall in Cebu (around $60,000investment) or a luxury beauty salon in association with a filipino

estetician in a nice (mall?) place, in the richs'neighbour. I am a physio, specialised in back pains and rehab, etc, and a in estetic "with no surgery". High-tech methods :use of ultrasound to eliminate cellulite, fat, radiofrequency to achieve liftings, phototherapy, electrostimulation to make a brasilian ass to any girl, etc.. I was formed in Buenos Aires by masters.

 

In my left hand: creating a french bakery or other french food factory, under the "orders" of an old french traveller of 70y., no drink no smoke, full shape, who has the experience of creating small businesses (he was paid for this by IMF) during 25 years + creating one dozen of bakeries of all sizes.

 

A man who says: " I have been able to make crusty bread and excellent croissants even in Madagascar, Seychelles, Cambodia, Thaïland, and Panglao, why not in Cebu ? "

And apart from this, bakery etc, he is an excellent cook, a gourmet. Used to find which product to make on any specific market. To make it, pack and sell it to shops, restaurants.

 

Which way would you push me ? French food, with lot of possible future developpments and respecting indigens's feet (because french) OR the estetic option, which is less subject to grow ?

 

Thank you, oldies!..be kind for a poor old frog who spent no more than 9 years in France till now..

 

Cebuano consumers are different. Things that are big usually die off in 1-3 years. So plan for a boom and bust. Reap it while it's ripe and sell the rest to some clueless investor.

 

Both will work cause this area is VERY Vain.....including men who like fingernail paintings and hair styling. So your market for your services doesn't just stop at women.

 

Complimentary Free Wifi, Water, Coffee, peanuts, crackers is a good start to paying customers at a Salon.

 

As for a bakery? Filipinos have different taste buds. Observe what they eat and what is sold in department stores. Most restaurants that are successful here have modified the menu alittle to satisfy filipinos.

Setting up a retail operation legally as a foreigner is subject to very strict regulations and in most cases you will need a paid up capital of US$2.5 million! You can check out the list of prohibited busines at my web site at

I think you will need to have some local equity in your business. Are there ways around this - of course.

How about Manila? There is definitely more "market" there. Cebu is still kind of "small" and the customers which appreciated authentic foods and also have the will to spend for it are thinly spread.

 

But what you have todo is definitelya visit to the competitors and see and test their products. hey are sucessful,so even whn substandard, its the market which decides.

 

(People here ask for ketchup on their Pizza, the ketchup is from bananas and sweet- do i have to mention more ?)

i think your list covered anything that could possibly make any money .... i guess a guy could start a over 100 foot tall tree farm and be able to own it outright ..

From a consumer's point of view…

 

Whether it is genuine, traditional French bread/food/cooking or whatever, if I can enjoy it, if my Filipina friend can enjoy it, if two of us can enjoy it together and be happy, that’s all what matters… hehe ;)
