There are also condiments like soy sauce, bird’s eye chilies, calamansi and vinegar to  match one’s taste preference.

Customers are encourage to use bare hands in eating at the restaurant.

We also tried their own lemonade and puno’s ice cream from nearby Nueva Ecija province.

Inspirational Story

Tita Olive is one of the few individual that treats her lechong manok business more of ” laro-laro” (a mere play, where she finds joy and happiness rather than being pressured to make a profit).

She used to be a very shy person before becoming a medical sales representative.   where the art of marketing skills and talking to ordinary people were acquired.

lechong-manok

lechong manok

She started her business way back in 2006, with an initial capitalization of just Php 20,000. She bought a lechon manok stall within the town which had closed down. Without much knowledge, she tried her luck asking friends and relatives who knew the recipe of making roasted chicken.

lechong-manok-with-special-sauce

lechong manok with special sauce

They would give her the ingredients but the measuring system would rely on  personal estimate (tantiya) rather than exact measurement. She also attended some short courses. She has all those measuring spoons and cups in the house so that when the volume of the restaurant’s particular dish is increased depending on the order, she can maintain the expected quality and not lose the so-called magic of the taste.

One key element that amazes the group was that she keeps a low-profit margin, relying on sales volume to keep the business running. Sir Lebon Ong said that her style is like the Chinese.

tita-olive-10

Tita Olive, showed us her own style of marination and the way she prepares her own roasted chicken (lechon manok). She would order them every other day in chicken farm and she made it sure that all the chicken are freshly killed. This is also to assure quality and freshness that makes her customers coming back. She also have her on style of special chicken sauce.

Her roasted chicken is similar to a popular roasted chicken in the country.

The restaurant and roasted chicken earnings from peak seasons would just go to year-end bonuses of staff (for December). While payment of business permits and taxes (for January). What is worth emulating is her attitude towards her employees,  dynamism, positivity and creativity. She would also accepts new ideas, suggestions and feedback from her customers.

Tita Olive’s roasted chicken is sold in 21 branches throughout San Miguel and other parts of Bulacan and Nueva Ecija provinces.
