After opening a motorcycle shop called Gwapings Moto in Naic, Cavite last month, Eric Fructuoso is preparing to open another business venture this month called Gwapigs Porkchop.
Both businesses have references to the name of the popular ‘90s male teen group called the Gwapings which Eric was a part of. He rose to fame in the early 1990s along with Mark Anthony Fernandez, Jomari Yllana and Jao Mapa. Their group was part of the cast of the Richard Gomez and Joey Marquez’s sitcom Palibhasa Lalake. The group went on to star in their own movie Guwapings: The First Adventure in 1992 and a variety show called Gwapings Live! which lasted for a year until 1993.
On his Instagram account, the 34-year-old actor posted an update on his food business last January 11 after sharing that construction on the place had started last month. On his Instagram account, he shared, “Opening ng first branch ng Gwapigs Porkchop January 16 Saturday sa Dagat-Dagatan, Caloocan.”
Prior to opening his new businesses, Eric was known to share a construction business with his non-showbiz wife of 17 years,Gian.
Aside from being an entrepreneur and actor, Eric is also a loving and proud father to his four children whom he regularly posts about on his social media account.
