There is no shortcut to success. In order to become successful in life, one must endure the pain and hardships that may come along the way.

But those trials did not hinder Haydee Cetro from Alfonso, Cavite in reaching her dreams along with her progressing business.

Haydee started her empanada business with only 250 pesos capital.

When she and her husband Arby Cetro opened their store, they did not expect that it would generate a huge income.

Their business is called, Empanada Ahuy.

They built their small store in front of their house in Alfonso, Cavite last June 2021.


Aside from their bestsellers (mango-cheese and Hawaiian pizza flavors), their empanada comes with different flavors such as spicy tuna ala king, classic chicken, beef with mushroom, pork, ube cheese, and cheesy choco hazelnut.

It all started when Haydee thought of making an empanada. She went to YouTube to know how to make it.

Because of the positive feedback, she and her husband decided to make a business out of it.

Initially, she was only using a bottle in making dough since she doesn’t have a rolling pin.

Eventually, they received some orders until they build a small store in front of their house.

Haydee never thought that many would patronize their business.

“Actually, nung nag-open kami nung June [2021], ang gusto ko lang naman talaga is, sabi ko, ‘Makabenta lang ako ng 10 boxes or 150 pieces a day, masayang-masaya na ako,” she said.

But on their first day up to date, they’re shocked after selling 500 pieces a day, worth 10,000 pesos.

Each empanada costs 25 pesos while a box of 12 pieces costs 300 pesos and a box of 15 pieces costs 350.
