Ms. Tess Laurente, the PR Manager and Chef Jessie herself when we had a chance to interview them talked about the story behind the name of MDC 100. The 100 is a very special number for the Que Family, They started a business with 100 pesos, so it symbolizes the humble beginning of the company, very inspiring!
