“Not about the money—it was about growth.”- 23-year-old Executive Chef
When one of her closest friends planned to put up a food business, Marge Soliman was just initially asked to be a kitchen consultant. Things turned up pretty well for Snacks and Ladders Café, and now she finds herself running the kitchen of this board game café along Maginhawa.
In an interview with Cosmopolitan Philippines, Marge, who graduated with a degree in Hotel and Restaurant and Insitutution Management in Culinary Arts at De la Salle CSB, recalled how she did not hesitate to take the opportunity to help her best friend, Louie Lao, owner of the café, to run the start-up business. She said she just wanted to gain experience from it, not merely thinking about the compensation from the job.
“If it booms, then good for me. If it doesn’t, then it’s a lesson learned. It was a win-win situation.” said Marge, the 23-year-old executive chef and operations manager of Snacks and Ladders.
She said that the business has been doing well so far, over the past six months of operation. “Right now, we’re still experimenting. I just told Louie I want to figure out how to throw in salted egg in there. Salted egg shake? Who knows!”, said Marge.
She said that they are thinking about putting up a branch in the South soon. She also added that in the future, she might want to run her own café soon.
Snacks and Ladders is located at #188 Maginhawa, and is open daily from 3:00PM to 11:00PM.
