Pandemic-born Takoyaki booth expands nationwide after closure
For small business owners, milestones are good indicators of their growth as entrepreneurs. Otako Monsta just hit a major blow as they celebrated their first anniversary. They also celebrated the success of a similar Japanese street food concept called Crazy Tori, which was simultaneously conceptualized and launched in July 2021. “This event is our way of showing our gratitude to all who have been with us at every step of the way and we look forward to more fruitful years with you as partners, ”said co-founder Gian Franco Go, welcoming the guests. The gathering was filled with music, great food and drink to celebrate their partners who have greatly contributed to their success as a business.
Sharing their love for Japanese cuisine inspired a group of young entrepreneurs to launch their business at the ILEA Christmas Bazaar in December 2020 in the city of Iloilo. Bringing the same quality and taste of Takoyaki found in Osaka, Japan has always been at the heart of their business. Their offers are competitively priced at P99 for 6 pieces and are made only with real seafood ingredients. Seasonal product introductions keep their menu up-to-date and exciting. The brand is best known for Monsta – Takoyaki filled with scallops, shrimp, cheese and topped with baby octopus. They are also the first to introduce matcha dessert balls, perfect to accompany Takoyaki, for the same price.
Those looking for a snack don’t have to look far as Otako Monsta is widely available in Visayas and Mindanao. It has completed its first year of operation with 32 branches and plans to double it to 60 stores nationwide by the end of 2022. The group launched its expansion in Luzon, opening a branch in Cavite in October 2021. Takoyaki enthusiasts can expect more branches in RCN in the first quarter of 2022.
Otako Monsta offers a competitive franchise package and has a proven business model with its strategically planned shopping center branches achieving a 5-6 month ROI, beating the initial forecast by 8-12 months.
