At 23 years of age, Celina Nolasco was able to create her own food business.
It was in 2011 when she thought of putting up an ice cream business since the Philippines is a tropical country and this cool treat would be appreciated all-year round. She ended up with a gelato stand, but because of difficulties with logistics, her father suggested that she make her business mobile and go for a food truck.
It became easier for her then to travel from Quezon City to the Midnight Mercato weekend market where she launched her food truck, Mio Gelati, in April 2011.
She named it such because “mio gelati” translates to “my gelato”, a business in which Celina practically did everything—from experimenting with flavors, mixing them, and tasting all of it. Her experience in the culinary industry helped her with this business.
