Ivan Alawi — one of the country’s youngest, hottest, and phenomenal YouTube sensations today — is now part of the country’s most innovative food cart franchise brand — Siomai King, “Ang Hari ng Siomai.”
Alawi, known for her funny, no-nonsense, real-life vlogs and viral posts online that have garnered millions of views and likes across various social media platforms has inked a partnership with Siomai King as its newest brand ambassadress.
The multi-talented vlogger and actress believes that the best way for people to notice you is by being “real” and “natural” as she portrays on her vlogs and YouTube channel — just like Siomai King, her siomai of choice because it has pure meat with no extenders.
In her new role as Siomai King ambassadress, Ivana will help more Filipinos become aware of a timely, affordable, and convenient business opportunity that would allow them to earn extra — for themselves and their families during these trying times.
Siomai King is the first brand and company to transition into an online franchise platform in the country and the whole franchise industry to adapt to the situations brought about by the ongoing pandemic.
The brand has been in the local franchise business for 14 years now and now has more than 1,000 food cart outlets nationwide.
Siomai King’s founders Jonathan So, president and CEO, and Carlito Macadangdang, vice president and CFO, conceptualized the brand’s online franchise platform — not only to keep their business afloat during the pandemic but, more importantly, to help Filipino who had been greatly affected financially by the pandemic.
With Siomai King’s online franchise platform, entrepreneurs now have the opportunity to have their own home-based franchise business, using a fraction of the usual capital needed for a traditional one.
Aside from the online food concept, Siomai King also offers its online franchisees ease of operations as they will also be the ones who will take care of order and payment processing to delivery, even the facilitation of an online franchisee’s commission through its personalized “shoplink” for each franchisee.
simply using a smartphone with an internet connection, franchisees will only need to post their shopinks on their social media accounts or pages to reach potential customers and earn.
And now, with their newest ambassadress Ivana Alawi onboard, Siomai King hopes to send its message across more people and continue to help many not only in surviving the pandemic but also to offer a viable alternative source of income to everyone in the new normal and beyond.
