Fruit shake vendor looking to expand business! Need another food cart.

I need a medium-sized food cart where I could display my fruit shake drinks and other snacks.


I am a 34-year-old fruit shake vendor struggling to provide for my family's needs through a small fruit shake stand that I started 3 years ago. My wife and I are childless, but I am helping take care of my 3 younger siblings.

My goals are to create another branch of my fruit shake stand so that I can duplicate my food cart business in another area where better foot traffic is available. I will also use this additional food cart to employ my younger siblings so that they have income and could become productive.

I need a medium-sized steady food cart where I could display my fruit shake drinks and other snacks.

Meeting this need will help me duplicate my original food cart and set up another branch where more potential clients can buy my products.

Alver lives in Mindanao; though generally peaceful, it is an area where jobs or employment rarely exist. He took a course with the Academy to start a small business. He is supporting his wife and his three younger siblings who live with them. He doesn't have kids of his own yet, but he wants to grow his small business so that he can support his family now and prepare for when they are finally blessed with their own children. In doing so, he hopes to secure his children’s future financially.
