The good news is—the brand was developed by young Filipino couple from Davao.

What’s notable about the efforts of the couple—they to “create something that appeals to the A and B markets in taste and aesthetic, but can also be afforded by the C and D markets”.

Inspiring Story.

Who wouldn’t support a business such as this?

Miki shared that right after high school, her former beau now her husband Ivan left for the UK.  He trained and worked as a chef at a Japanese restaurant in Manchester. Four years later after Miki finished her college, she followed.

She worked in London as a caregiver while he left his job and moved to London and they ended up working for the same institution. Armed with enough savings, they returned to the country, and opened a business.

Their success story wasn’t a walk in the park, there came a time when the business they started began to crash, so she had to resort to working for a contact center and used her salary to make their business going and stay afloat.

The young star Bernardo of the KathNiel fame is a strong advocate for supporting Pinoy products.

Thus, when she endorses a particular brand, she makes sure that it’s Filipino-owned and promotes the ingenuity of the Filipino talent[s].

In fact, according to Kath, as soon she met with the young owners of MaxiMango—they immediately agreed to working together in making the brand a real success.

MaxiMango is under VQZ Maxi Mango and was established in December 2017. Its office address is located at Unit 6-I Three Manhattan Parkview Araneta Center in Cubao, Quezon City.
