Homemade goodness from ‘Cooking Momcy’

Aurora S. Angkiko turned her passion into a business. And with capital of only P3,000, her Cooking Momcy is making waves delivering homemade goodies.

Cooking Momcy was opened only this May, with a startup capital of only PhP3,000.00.

“I’ve had a passion for cooking ever since I can remember,” said Aurora S. Angkiko.

But as a housewife, and even is she wanted to make an honest living on the side, she was limited.

There was a point when “I thought of entering the BPO industry,” Aurora said, but then “my children pushed me to do what they knew I enjoyed doing and that is cooking. So with that said, Cooking Momcy came into fruition.”

Her kids pushed her to “open up our own business… They told me that my cooking deserved to be shared with others. They are my inspiration everyday.”

The name Cooking Momcy was an idea that came from the game “Cooking Mama”. But “since everyone calls me Momcy, we incorporated the two together and we thought it was quite a catchy name.”

“Learn to listen to feedback or criticism, whether they may be positive or negative, because it will help you greatly with your growth as an entrepreneur, and will also help the business and your products.”

Now, consider this: “Much to our surprise, after only a month into the business, we have reached our ROI. I can say that this type of business is indeed a profitable venture. In fact, just recently, I was able to pay my children’s tuition from our earnings.”

But what makes her offerings different from those already offered in the market? That is: What makes this business special compared to others?

“Here in Cooking Momcy, our products are made fresh and cooked on the same day of their order to assure the quality and freshness. We try our best to cater to our customers’ feedback and requests because they all have different preferences – e.g. some like their kimchi very fermented and some do not, and some like their fishcakes spicy and some prefer them just sweet. So we give the customers options to customize their order according to how they want them so they can enjoy our homemade goodness just the way they like it.”

What is the bestseller?

Try the Eomuk Bokkeum/Bokum Odeng, which is a sweet stir-fried fish cake topped with carrots, that buyers can enjoy in original or sweet n’ spicy. It is worth PhP100.00.

“In our first month, we sold over 400 tubs of the Eomuk Bokkeum alone,” Aurora said.

Looking back, “I was actually a Foreign Language student and reached third year of college-level education; my course was not in any way related to my current business,” Aurora said. But “it has been my dream opening a restaurant. My husband and I have opened carinderias before.”

There are still challenges.

For instance, “since we are currently under a pandemic, getting supplies/ingredients is harder due to some stores being closed, or closing early. At times, supplies/ingredients are also limited to none which becomes a problem for us. Our best way to counter these is to buy in bulk and buy early, while still making sure that our ingredients are fresh and up to par.”

But Cooking Momcy is here to stay, thanks to the goodness of what it’s offering.

And for people who may want to also open their business, what tips can Aurora give?

“Learn to listen to feedback or criticism, whether they may be positive or negative, because it will help you greatly with your growth as an entrepreneur, and will also help the business and your products,” she said.

Also: “When opening a business, especially when you have people with you, make sure to maintain a healthy environment and relationship among everyone. I have learned that when there is harmony at work, the job gets done way faster and more proficiently, there is less stress which is a big factor in how everyone works.”
