10 Inspiring Celebrities You Probably Didn't Know Own These Businesses

Most celebrities are known for being on screen, having TV shows, good looks, and skills in acting. While there are personalities that have put show business as their primary source of income, there are also a few who are aware that fame, no matter how big, is but temporary. And even if they may famous for the time-being, these artists are smart enough to know that there is no such thing as a lifetime of success and stability in any industry. As the saying goes,”one must not put all his eggs in one basket.” This means that if you’re wise enough, you should always have a backup plan just to be safe.

This is exactly what these remarkable showbiz personalities have thought of. While they have made their own marks in the entertainment industry, this didn’t prevent them from thinking long-term, this invested in their own businesses.

1.    Marvin Agustin

The success of Marvin Agustin in his group of businesses is not really a secret to everyone. This actor has been recognized for his astounding entrepreneurial skills. His story has been an inspiration to many. A lot of people have wondered why this actor has been “MIA” in the limelight for a time, however, while he became a little silent on TV, he was making noise in a different area, particularly the food industry.

The actor is the brainchild behind big food chains such as Robotosan, Kung Fu Kitchen, SumoSam, Tokyo Grill, Marciano’s, Johnny Chow, Komrad, John & Yoko, among many others.

2.    Sharon Cuneta

The veteran actress and wife to Senator Kiko Pangilinan continues to hit the limelight, being a judge on ABS-CBN’s “The Voice”. Meanwhile, she manages a Filipino restaurant called “Mesa” together with her husband and is also a real estate investor, managing Sweet Spring Country Farm, a 3-hectare farm.

The Megastar certainly embodies a true superwoman being a mother, actor, and businesswoman all in one!

3.    Georgina Wilson

This Filipino-Aussie model and socialite is not only gorgeous but is also a genius. Together with friends who are also her business partner, they were able to form the Sunnies Studios empire. The former Asia’s Next Top Model host has earned her degree in Finance in Sydney Australia, adding to her already very impressive resume.

4.    Karylle Padilla-Yuzon

The It’s Showtime host is a part owner of the KTV and resto-bar Centerstage Family KTV. Also added to her is a dessert kiosk in Greenhills called The Mango Farm. Well, this girl surely knows her way around both on and off screen. Kudos!

5.    Sam Pinto

This super gorgeous actress has launched her own swimsuit line called Sirena Swimwear, which has been a crowd-favorite because of its beautiful designs. She also recently opened her very own resort in Baler called L’Sirene Boutique Resort, which is definitely worth a visit. What can we say, Sam is an epitome of beauty and brains!

6.    Erwan Heussaff

Anne Curtis’ fiancé is well known for fitness and healthy living. But not a lot of people know that he has also started to make a name in the food arena. Apart from restaurants which he owns, the foodie and health guru recently opened a “pop-up carinderia”, or a small eatery, which offers healthy food on a budget. That surely sounds exciting.

7.    Erich Gonzales

This leading lady has proven her determination in show business after winning a reality show. Since then, she has handled projects left and right and was able to maintain her relevance in the industry. Not a lot of people, however, know that Erich is not only active on TV, but as well as pursuing a career as a restauranteur. She opened her very own called The Breakfast Club way back in 2013. Good job!

8.    Jodi Sta. Maria

The actress and mother have done a good job in handling both her acting career as well as her flourishing resto-bar called Rue Bourbon. It’s been an establishment in the social scene for quite a while now. In addition to this, she also opened a dessert place called The Happy Barn Milkshake Factory.

Jodi also truly represents girl power as seen in her list of achievements!

9.    Shamcey Supsup

The beauty queen, together with husband, model/businessman Lloyd Lee, opened a restaurant called Pedro 'n Coi (Pinoy Pop Chibog). Shamcey, who graduated a magna cum laude in UP with a degree in architecture, also designed the whole place!

10.    Jericho Rosales

The actor and husband to fashion blogger, Kim Jones, has been a little absent on screen. Reason for that? He is apparently getting busy in other realms such as opening a huge restaurant chain Kuya J! Other than this, he also owns a barber shop called Talas Manilenyo. Nicely done, Jericho!
