A lot of businesses have taken a hit, no thanks to the pandemic. That’s why people have come up with creative ways to earn a living. This includes starting an online business, right in the comfort of their homes.
One of the many obstacles in starting a business includes sourcing raw materials or ingredients. For one thing, you can’t go out as freely. And if you do get the chance to go out, you better get as much as you need. On the other hand, people who don’t want to go out just yet have no choice but to rely on deliveries. This can definitely be costly. There’s delivery rates, pabili fees, tips, and sometimes the extra markup to consider— all in the name of convenience.
Don’t worry. Thanks to a tip from blogger Wanderbites by Bobbie, we’ve discovered a place that sells everything that a food business would need. A one-stop-shop, so to speak. And best of all, their rates are cheaper than mall prices. These can practically pass off as wholesale rates (without having to get too much of one thing, too!).
Wholesale prices for booze? Sign me up! (Oops, getting distracted here)
So, for those who plan on venturing into the food business (or are already getting busy with a shop of their own), better remember the name: Restaurant Depot.
Great Finds and Great Deals
According to the post by Wanderbites by Bobbie, “Restaurant Depot has it all. It’s a one-stop-shop for all your ingredients and raw materials. They have meats, frozen fruits, dairy, condiments, beverage mixes, sinkers, alcohol and cocktails, flavorings, and a lot more! They also have packaging [materials], cleaning materials, and whatever you need for your home or business.”
Just take a look at some of her great finds:
Syrups and flavorings for those who want to sell drinks
Teas, chocolate mixes, cocoa powders, and ingredients for aspiring bakers
Mixers, cotton candy makers, and equipment that come with affordable rates
Aluminum trays as packaging for lunch trays, baked goods, and even Sushi Bakes!
Meat, butter, ice cream, and basics to get you going
But before anything else, make sure you get your very own Restaurant Depot Card. It’s free of charge, and a must-have before you check-out. And remember to always observe proper safety and health protocols while shopping. Maintain proper social distancing, but most importantly, enjoy your shopping!
Restaurant Depot is located in 2738 F.B. Harrison St., Pasay City, and the store is open daily from 8 AM to 7 PM.
