Aside from producing TV5’s hit reality search “Kanta Pilipinas”, actor-entrepreneur Marvin Agustin is involved in another new show that searches for the “Luto-Negosyo” star in “Karinderya Wars” the first-ever luto-negosyo challenge show on Philippine TV.
According to Marvin, “Karinderya Wars” will have nine contestants. Some have their own food business while others are employed in a carinderia or restaurant. They will be given basic cooking and business training before they go about their chosen food business.
The show’s head writer Jaypee Miguel also clarified that the show is not all about cooking and they will give equal weight to the entrepreneurial spirit of the contestants. Judging will be based on customer satisfaction and the winner shall get one million pesos worth of prizes.
As a chef entrepreneur who owns several restaurants, Marvin wants to encourage more Filipinos to consider putting up their own food business. He and the Kapatid Network are now taking in nominations for those who want to be part of the first luto-negosyo cooking challenge show. Those interested to join must be nominated by their friends, co-workers, neighbors or family members. They must also be 18 years old or older and residents of Metro Manila.
