Haydee of Empanada Ahuy recalled how her successful business started. On GMA’s Pera Paraan, Haydee shared that the first customers of her empanadas were her family. When she received positive feedback, she decided to sell it online and to her husband’s co-workers.

Haydee admitted that she didn’t have a big capital when she started her business. From the P250 investment, she now earns over P10,000 a day selling empanadas. Haydee recalls that her initial goal was to sell 10 boxes or 150 pieces. Now, her business Empanada Ahuy sells over 500 pieces every day. They were even able to sell over 750 in one day.

Empanada Ahuy’s humble beginnings

Looking back, Haydee recalled that she didn’t even have a rolling pin when she was just starting. Having a rolling pin was an important tool in making empanada dough. Instead of being disheartened, Haydee improvised and used a bottle.

Soon enough, orders started picking up.  Haydee opened a store right in front of their house. Haydee’s products became so popular that it has customers not just in Cavite but also nearby provinces and cities.

“My husband and kids ang kauna-unahang naging fans ng aking empanada. Dati sila lang ang pinagluluto ko. Ngayon, buong Alfonso na. Isama na din natin ang Tagaytay, Indang, Mendez, Bailen, Dasma, at Laguna. Marami pong salamat sa inyong lahat at sa lahat ng sumusuporta sa Empanada Ahuy Since day one,” Haydee said.

Words of advice

Haydee has a few words of inspiration to those who are venturing into business.  Like many successful entrepreneurs, she advised them to be hardworking and persevering.

“Hindi mo kailangan ng malaking capital, ang kailangan mo malaking sipag at tiyaga. Oo, kasi kung walang tiyaga, wala susuko ka na lang,” Haydee shared.

They also have the sweet options: Mango Cheese, Ube Cheese, Cheesy Choco Hazelnut. Each piece is sold for P25 while a box of 15 is priced at P300.
