In an interview with PUSH, Nash shared why he and his business partners decided to venture into the inasal business.
"Kaya namin binuo ang 'Grillest' kasi may favorite restaurant kami tapos favorite din namin ang chicken inasal and siyempre na inspire kami na gumawa ng sariling version nito," he said.
He added that they noticed in their Japanese restaurant that their chicken-rice combination had a market of its own so they decided to open a restaurant which focuses mainly on chicken dishes like inasal.
"'Yun napapansin namin iba rin talaga 'yung market ng chicken karaage, kapag chicken and rice iba rin 'yung market talaga so gusto rin namin pasukin' yung may sarili kaming restaurant about chicken," he stated.
Being an entrepreneur has been a very fruitful journey for Nash. "Surprisingly okay, hindi ko rin alam kung bakit. Sobrang ganda rin naman ng nangyayari sa amin sa Muramen kasi currently nagkakaroon na kami ng 9th branch kapag natuloy 'yung deal kami sa Malabon. And eventually makaka-open na kami sa mga malls," he relayed.
What is his advice for young people who would also want to venture into entrepreneurship?
"Noong una sobrang hirap makakuha ng market ng regular customers. Siyempre hindi naman lahat trip ang trip mo eh, gusto 'yung panlasa mo. Huwag ka lang mag-give up. Keep on experimenting and eventually makukuha mo na rin 'yung sweet spot na patok sa mga tao," he said.
