More and more flight attendants are putting up small businesses which is actually great! It is through these small businesses that our economy recovers faster and these help our flight attendants get through this crisis after the aviation industry has been greatly affected.
One of them is Anj Valeros, a Cebu Pacific flight attendant who found a more simplified and practical business venture best suited for today's consumers. Her business, frozen ready-to-cook food kits named FrozEats where they sell frozen goods like Longaniza, Tocino, Tapa, BBQ. We also cater to your samgyupsal cravings - meat products and side dishes (kimchi, fishcake, pickled radish).
So why frozen foods? Why not something where consumers can eat in an instant, all warm? Well Anj shared, "I needed a product that can be consumed anytime of the day. That’s why I came up with all day breakfast meals. I named it FrozEats because my goal is to cater to every cravings that can be placed inside a fridge." She has a very good point indeed!
The picture above looks appetizing? Indeed it is and in fact, that longganisa is one of Anj's best sellers. "As my customers say, everything is the best! But their all time favorite is our Garlic Longaniza which is 150pesos only per pack. Per pack is 500 grams which consists of 8 pieces," Anj shared
However more than the income Anj now receives from her lucrative business amidst this pandemic are very important lessons in life. "Maybe this crisis, is a wake up call to simplify our lives, to focus on what really matters, which will strengthen our ability in the future," Anj told us.
For Anj, it was all about pushing forward and not allowing the crisis to consume her goals and dreams. It was about staying focused and never giving up. "There is no other way but to move forward, I pushed myself to a better me and I realized that there’s so much I can do! I believed in myself and I started doing something during this pandemic. Especially, now that we have limited flights, I need to work harder for the needs of my family."
As much of Anj's flight attendant colleagues also face uncertainty especially in a time when the airline industry is struggling, she has this to share. "Even when you’re in ground - soar high! Stand out and hustle hard."
Even if others have the tendency to say "flight attendant ka, ano nangyari at nagbebenta ka nalang ng pagkain", just stay focused and shun-off those negativity. You have a goal and you have a journey towards it, so always take the high road. Remember, the only people we have to impress is God and of course, our customers who will support our businesses.
Thank you for sharing your #asensocabincrew story Anj, and may it inspire others to always push forward amidst the present circumstance.
