What makes him the youngest richest person in the Philippines?

Let's talk a little about the history of his business career. At a young age, Sia cultivated the spirit of entrepreneurship in his heart. At 20 years old, he engaged in food business. He established the Mang Inasal restaurant in Iloilo in December 12, 2003.

Mang Inasal’s specialty is the grilled chicken which was loved by Ilonggos. People loved to eat their chicken for its delicious taste. The secret of their tasty chicken was brought by the local herbs and spices flavored in the chicken.

The restaurant business was an instant success. Its branches spread throughout Visayas, Mindanao and Metro Manila.

Despite the stiff competition in the food business, Sia successfully penetrated the food market.

In 2005, Sia opened Mang Inasal for franchise. Due to its proven system and success, many Filipino entrepreneurs opened a franchise business of Mang Inasal.

Mang Inasal expanded up to 100 branches in 2009. And by 2010, Jollibee Foods Corporation acquired 70% of Mang Inasal for PhP 3 billion ($68.8 million). By the same year, it reported PhP 2.6 billion revenue.

In 2011, Sia’s Mang Inasal branches spread up to over 400 stores throughout the Philippines overtaking McDonald’s.
