3 things you need to know before starting a convenience store business


Posted at Dec 06 2017 03:34 PM


Having your own business is a dream that many Filipinos share, and one of the most common business ventures in the Philippines is the sari-sari or convenience store.

This type of business may seem simple to start, but there are different factors you need to consider if you want to succeed.

1. Find a great location

Convenience or sari-sari stores are small retail outlets that can be found in almost all neighborhoods, sometimes even in every street corner. While it is easy to put your store right in front of your home, considering other areas near you might help your business stand out and reach a larger market.

Find a location such as nearby busy streets, around town plazas or parks, next to schools, and other areas with a lot of foot traffic.

2. Start with a Good Capital

With more and more financial institutions helping small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and entrepreneurs in funding start-up businesses, there are now many ways to get capital aside from using your own savings.

Do your research and always remember to choose the one that offers low interest rates for business loans.

3. Choose the Right Equipment

Your choice of equipment is fundamental to the success of your business, especially in putting up a convenience store.

This kind of business is about making sure that all sorts of products are available for the customer, and ensuring these products are properly preserved. This holds true especially for sought-after items like food and drinks.

To keep your customers happy, a refrigerator is one of the basic equipment you will need. Choosing the right size of refrigerator is essential in making sure that all your food and beverage products are properly stored.
