LOOK: Wendell Ramos’ intention to help turned into an international business
“‘Yan ang purpose ng WenDeli, not just to sell but we’re also offering distributorship and reselling [opportunities],” actor-turned-entrepreneur Wendell Ramos told the press during a pocket interview at the WenDeli Meat House international franchising launch. The grand event was held at the City of Dreams Manila.
“Nag-start lang ito dahil maraming lumapit sa atin noong pandemic. Mabigat sa puso natin na kahit may naitabi ka, hindi mo lahat mapagbigyan. Ito real talk lang ito. Hindi naman biro mga lumapit sa ‘yo. Alam mong mga dating meron,” Wendell explained. “Fast forward, [I thought] paano kaya ako makakagawa ng isang bagay to help them? Eh tayo rin, hindi natin alam kung hanggang kailan tayo [meron].”
He had no idea that what was just a simple business idea at the height of the pandemic would blow up into something that turned global. A small frozen products business started by his wife turned into a big business that just launched international franchising opportunities for Filipinos abroad.
