Many Filipino celebrities continue to shine even in the world of entrepreneurship. Just look at promising actors and vloggers Luis Manzano and Alex Gonzaga-Morada who hustle outside the glitz and glamor of the entertainment industry while enjoying the success of their respective businesses.
Known to the public as the dynamic duo, Alex and Luis not only share a strong friendship, the two also have similar ideas on how to improve their business operations.
Providing only the best: Alex continues to choose Lalamove for deliveries
Alex and her family invested in the food and beverage segment, giving birth to “Happy Cup.”
Providing “Happiness in a Cup,” the Gonzaga sisters have been offering Filipinos affordable choices of frappes, milk teas, pearl coolers, and now, ready-to-drink and do-it-yourself milk tea sets that can be ordered via Lalamove same-day delivery or Pabili Service (Purchase Service).
Since its establishment in May 2017, Gonzaga said part of Happy Cup’s success is making its customers feel valued by delivering products worthy of their money.
“Of course, whatever it is you’re selling, you really have to be 100% sure it’s really worth it and it’s really the best,” Gonzaga shared.
“Make sure… that whatever you’re saying about your products is true, so you can have a lasting relationship with your customers, to earn their loyalty, and to make sure that their purchase is not just a one-time thing,” she added.
Moving people’s lives with Lalamove
Meanwhile, Manzano has been juggling two businesses: FlexFuel PH, one of the distributors of petroleum products in the Philippines, and Lucky8Lulu, an artisan & handcrafted fragrance line with his wife Jessy Mendiola.
One thing that Manzano likes about staying in showbiz while managing his business ventures is how he gets to “touch the lives” of people.
“I think a similarity is being able to touch lives, one we get to do through a screen and the other one through people’s lives and livelihood,” he said.
His advice to other entrepreneurs: “Besides the profit, make sure that what you will be doing benefits others –that the business has a positive impact on people. When you prosper, they prosper as well.”
To ensure their businesses will run smoothly, Gonzaga and Manzano have tapped Lalamove for their delivery needs, confident that customers will receive the products quickly and hassle-free while maintaining their quality.
Lalamove has a wide range of vehicles to meet the needs of its clients—from motorcycles, sedans, vans, and 4-wheel, 6-wheel, and even 10-wheel trucks, servicing across Luzon and in Cebu.
For businesses in the food and beverage segment, just like Gonzaga, they can book Lalamove’s motorcycle delivery service with the products sealed in an insulated bag to safely deliver food and maintain the food’s desired temperature. Customers can also avail Lalamove’s Purchase Service (Pabili Service), requesting riders to buy food or medicines to be delivered to their doorstep.
If you have a business requiring a vehicle to handle bulky and heavy items, like Manzano, Lalamove also has your back with its 4 Wheeler Delivery Truck Services.
Whether it is a small or large operation, businesses of all sizes can find a partner in Lalamove for their logistics needs. Signing up for Lalamove for Business account frees entrepreneurs from investing additional capital to manage their own fleet. Owners only need to pay for the bookings and let Lalamove handle their deliveries at a very affordable price.
