Another dessert staple is mango graham float — a cake-like dessert made with layers of graham crackers, whipped cream, condensed milk, and mangoes. As a trusted household favorite, emerging online entrepreneurs easily choose this viable product. If you are currently satiating a sweet tooth, we introduce you with Mary’s Graham Cravings.

Mango Graham

What started out as a dessert craving came out to be a good business opportunity

Entrepreneur Mary May de Guzman was looking through an online marketplace when she saw “mango graham” posts and suddenly craved. She then created her own version but had excess pieces so she sold them to her workmates. Since then, more workmates would request to buy her cake dessert, and there came the birth of her small enterprise.

However, like many startups, Mary also shared that she encountered a few challenges in setting up her business. She mentions that as a one-woman team, she does everything from sourcing out raw ingredients and supplies, taking and creating orders to marketing her own products. But what kept her going is her loyal customers adding that, “hangga’t may isang bumibili, tuloy lang.” Moreover, she believes that the power of social media also helped her sustain her product’s presence to the online market.

She also emphasized the importance of variety in offerings that kept her market curious and willing to try new products.
