Friends Gino Ortiz, David Santos and Andrew Aseniero contributed P7,000 each and started selling chicken wings every weekend and during bazaars.

Now, they have a store and plan to open another next year.

Bad Boys Wingz opened on March 16 across Bright Academy in Banilad. Its 30-square-meter space can seat up to 20 customers at one time.

The store is open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Ortiz, who trained at the International Culinary Arts Academy Cebu (ICAAC) and had a management experience managing Sunburst SM and Mango branches, supervises kitchen operations and comes up with different food offerings.

He said they decided to specialize on chicken wings because this is a popular favorite.

Santos, a fine arts graduate, handles financial management while Aseniero, who used to help his family manage their printing business, handles overall operations.

They invested a total of P300,000 in their first store, which they earned during weekend bazaars. They used to earn an average of P10,000 every weekend at the Banilad Town Center.

“We’ve joined bazaars at Escario Centrale, Oakridge and at Parkmall. For every bazaar we could earn from P24,000 to P28,000,” said Aseniero.

Since they opened the store, sales has been very good.

“Since we opened in March, our gross income is about P100,000. We have been getting positive feedback from customers,” Ortiz said.

The location of the store proved to be strategic as it is near the University of Visayas, University of San Carlos and Bright Academy.

“We have students coming here as well as those living in dormitories and boarding houses nearby. We also make sure that our prices are affordable for them,” said Santos.

They currently offer nine different flavors of their main product which is the chicken wings – plain old wings, lemon pepper, garlic parmesan, honey barbeque, teriyaki, sriracha honey, mild buffalo, angry buffalo and suicide.

A half dozen costs only P169 while a dozen costs P320.

They have also started offering other dishes like boneless chicken; the rib; fish and chips; side dishes like the spuds, spam fries and sweet potato fries; and spicy chocolate mouse and oreoccino for dessert.

Ortiz said they have stopped selling at BTC and stopped joining bazaars for now to focus on the store.

“We want to grow this first before we go out and explore other opportunities,” he said.
