More and more celebrities are engaging in business ventures as their fall back just in case they’ve lost the limelight in being a ‘star’. They claimed they will not forever be celebrities and it would always be best to have a business of their own to support them in the future when they’re no longer active in the showbiz industry.
After the success of MeatKRIS burger stall by Kapuso actress Kris Bernal and in the midst of her busy schedule, Kris is getting prepared to operate a new business—a Korean barbecue-inspired restaurant which she plans to open next year, 2018.
Last month, Kris posted on Instagram the exact place where her new restaurant will rise. It will be located in Don Antonio Heights in Commonwealth, Quezon City.
In an exclusive interview made by PEP.ph via Facebook messenger, Kris shared that she even flew to South Korea to do intensive research on Korean cuisine and sniffed out recipes and menu items that would possibly fit Pinoy’s taste. But aside from the food, she claimed that passion is the most important ingredient to make any business successful.
Meanwhile, Kris honestly shared that she doesn’t have a background in the food business at all. However, she claimed she learned a lot of things from handling a business as a first timer.
According to Kris, there are 3 important things that a first-timer should remember in handling a business. First, you must love what you do and make sure that you don’t lose interest in keeping your concept. Second, owners should be on-hand with their business and should think of ways that will make it different from competitors and third, that owners should treat their employers like own family members.
Kris claimed that taking the risk of putting up a business was her greatest challenge since it entails a lot of money and everything was a test at first.
Truly, Kapuso actress Kristine Ann “Kris” Tan Bernal had gone a long way after winning in the fourth season of the reality-based talent search “StarStruck” of GMA Network in 2007. She’s not only an actress, she’s also a ‘certified’ entrepreneur.
