Having multiple sources of income has become a norm nowadays with many turning their love for food into a side hustle. In the age of technology when almost everything can be done digitally, starting an online food business has easily become popular. It can be a great way of earning some extra cash while doing something you enjoy at the comfort of your own home. So here are some of the key ingredients needed in starting an online food business.

A Unique Product

The popularity of food delivery applications and marketplaces has drawn a lot of interest in putting up an online food business. With more and more business owners in the Philippines turning to e-commerce, competition is getting tougher than ever. So when starting an online food business, choose a niche that stands out from the rest – one that is not just profitable, but also provides a different experience for customers. Before you decide what kind of food to sell, be updated with the latest trends, list down the delicious food items that can give good value, and identify the market you want to focus on.

Strong Online Presence

Filipino’s love for social media can be a major contributor in the rise of e-commerce in the past years. So when starting an online food business, building a strong online presence is one of the keys to success. Figure out the best way to engage and interact with your prospective customers. Create your own social media accounts and website or list your products thru platforms like Grab Food, Food Panda, Viber communities, and Facebook marketplaces. Active online presence has become a prerequisite to adapt to the ever-changing market demand for convenient ordering of readily available food.
