Tapa King: Serving the Perfect Filipino Comfort Food

Franchise Fee: P900,000

Total Investment: P6 million to P7 million


It all started with a grandmother’s closely guarded recipe for delicious tapa. Handed down from one generation to the next, this recipe somehow found its way into the hands of two of the family’s most enterprising members. And the rest, as they say, is history. The tapa recipe has been parlayed into a very successful chain of fast-food eateries offering not one, but several tapa recipes for different tastes.


In 1987, the aunt-and-niece tandem of Ida de Guzman and Olga de Asis Lozada, foodies at heart, convinced family friend Richard Majul to join them in a unique fast food venture—favorite Filipino breakfast items that can be enjoyed all day. Tapa King started in 1987 as a hole-in-the-wall operation in Gallardo Street, Legaspi Village, in Makati City.


Tapa King became known for their trademark high quality beef cut into strips and marinated perfectly, served with fried egg with golden brown edges. Add golden rice to the mix to make the classic Filipino comfort food that can be eaten morning, lunch, dinner, and late night during overtime work or even after night-outs with friends.


Throughout the years, the company has gradually grown nationwide and has even expanded abroad to Dubai and Singapore, serving classic Filipino meals for the past 31 years. For franchise inquiries, visit their website.
