Mr. Katsu serves rice meals in new and exciting ways with its own take on katsudon, omurice and cha-han.

Its golden-fried and flavor-packed katsudon complemented with their delicious sauces is always a bestseller, while its delectable omurice and chahan prove to be a solid staple among customers. There is a wide range of sauces and fillings, helping ensure that customers will never get bored of the menu. They are also allowed to choose their deep-fried meat, whether it’s pork, chicken or fish, then combine it with their choice of sauce (ranch barbecue, cheesy garlic, spicy kungpao, teriyaki and gravy) served with vegetables over rice.

Franchise Fee: P180,000

Total Investment: P485,000 - 610,000

Tapawarma is the home of the first and original Pinoy Shawarma. It combines the savory taste of Beef Tapa and the tasty and convenient concept of shawarma wrap, priced at masa-friendly prices. The company’s all-time favorite Beef Tapa meals are made more enjoyable in delicious variations—Tapawarma Wrap, Tapawarma Rice, Tapawarma Nachos, and Tapawarma Noodles.

Tapawarma is the brainchild of John and Ladyh Oliva. As entrepreneurs, their expertise led them to the F&B industry. Food is one thing they are mostly excited about, as demands and opportunities in this category continue to grow. True enough, they’ve developed unique food cart concepts—Señor Juan, a suman latik food stall, and Tapawarma, serving the first Tapa+Shawarma taste combination.

Tapawarma is a true-Filipino brand built with a pure vision for Filipino diners, which is to provide the best-tasting Pinoy shawarma, as well as a viable franchise business to help them succeed.

What happens when you put together sizzling bacon; a sunny fried egg; a serving of rice; and homemade cheese sauce? Pure, unadulterated happiness. Bacsi Bro’s serves arguably the best-tasting bacsilog and other silog favorites at affordable prices. The company strives to replicate the joy diners feel when eating their favorite Pinoy dishes in the comfort of their own home. It does this by making sure the meat is all fresh and prepared from scratch, like how mom used to make it. Yes, Bacsi Bros makes its own bacon. The other silog offerings include tapsibro, cornsibro, and porksibro, all of which are also drizzled with its proprietary cheese sauce blend that completes the signature Bacsi Bros flavor.

But if customers don’t feel like eating rice, Bacsi Bros’ still got them covered—with pita bread. Bacsi Bro’s’ very own “Bacsiwrap” is made from crisp bacon,  scrambled eggs, and its very own cheese sauce blend wrapped in freshly baked pita bread. Bacsiwrap aims to satisfy the cravings of its customers, whether they’re on-the-go or simply chilling at home,

Persian Avenue is a purveyor of Persian-inspired snacks and meals.

Started in 2014 from Angeles City, Pampanga by two foodie brothers with a passion for good food, Persian Avenue gradually grew over the years and at present, they have over 40 outlets nationwide. Fueled by their commitment to maintain their high-quality standards, the brothers are dedicated in using only premium ingredients with a combination of toppings and mouthwatering sauces.

What makes them different? Persian Avenue only wants the real deal for its customers, which is why its best-selling wraps are made of marinated meat that’s roasted and spiced to perfection then wrapped in pita bread. They only use pure sirloin beef with no fat and extenders, served with fresh lettuce and cucumbers. The pita bread is painstakingly handmade to preserve its soft and chewy texture.

Persian Avenue also offer its deliciously addictive rice meals to satisfy anyone’s craving for grilled meat—whether it’s chicken, pork, shrimp or ground beef. All of the rice meals are served with their trademark Persian Avenue rice that’s specially seasoned and flavored.
