Last December 8, 2014, we opened our BN Whitening Shoppe business in Gaisano Grand Mall Panabo in Panabo City, Davao del Norte. It’s “we” because I had a business partner, Mia Polly, my classmate when I was still in Graduate School (MS Biology) in Ateneo de Davao University.
BN Whitening Shoppe started in Davao City and all the products are manufactured in Davao City, too. So everything is locally made. BN Whitening Shoppe’s CEO, Bianca Naranjo (where BN stands for), just started the business online. But amazingly, those clients online referred the products to their friends and through word of mouth, it became popular and best-seller. She opened her store and eventually, opened business opportunities through franchising. Then we got the franchise.
Many people in Panabo City are already BN users but they are buying in Davao City or Tagum City. That means they are traveling 20 minutes to 1 hour before they can buy the products. That is the reason why we opened the store so that we can help those users and at the same time, market the products so that more and more women will change their lives – to have a smoother, fairer skin, boost confidence and self-esteem.
This is my first business where I am really serious. I really prayed to God for this business and it came true, with the help of my business partner. I know having a business has a lot of risks, but I know God is with me…with us.
Here are some of the products of BN Whitening Shoppe.
