Pinoy celebrities who have stores and businesses.

Celebrities often slap their name on a brand, give it their blessing, then sit back and rake in the royalties. But for some, that's not enough. There are a few famous faces who also have entrepreneurial spirits -- they see past the careers that made them famous and decide to venture into the business world.

Being a star is no guarantee of success, of course. Only a few celebrities have really managed to move beyond their original careers and develop some seriously successful business empires. We compiled a list of 10 celebrities-turned-entrepreneurs who have really succeeded in their business endeavors.

1. Marvin Agustin

Through the years, Marvin has become a great model to Pinoys in showbiz. He is one great proof that celebrities can also become entrepreneurs in real life and not just in TV screen.

2. Sharon Cuneta

3. Shamcey Supsup

This is what Shamcey Supsup-Lee said on why she and husband Lloyd Lee chose to venture into a food business. In fact, their restaurant Pedro 'N Coi, which is located at Fisher Mall in Quezon City, has a unique theme. "Gusto namin yun parang nasa isang kalye ka sa Maynila. . . may jeep, may mga stalls, at may mga sari-sari stores," Shamcey explained on their concept, which focuses on making their diners feel like they are on the streets of Manila.

4. Karylle Padilla-Yuzon

Kapuso actress Jackie Rice is also persevered on entering food business. With her partner Andrew Lopez, Jackie has just opened Pares de Manila – a 24-hour eatery. With the success of her branch in Sampaloc, Manila, they are able to open another branch located Scout Ybardolaza St., Quezon City. Pares de Manila serves all-time favourite Filipino meals like beef pares, tapsilog, sizzling liempo, etc. So if you’re craving for authentic Filipino meals at 2 in the morning, this is a must-go.

6. Erich Gonzales

Be My Lady leading actress Erich Gonzales owns an all-day breakfast restaurant that offers traditional American, Korean, Asian Fusion, and Filipino food that seems fittingly to its name – The Breakfast Club (TBC).

There’s a saying that “A way to man’s heart is through his stomach.” Is this one of the great qualities that Daniel Matsunaga likes about Erich? One thing’s for sure, Erich is booming in the showbiz AND food industry.
