A Collaboration of Families
Conching wanted to bring back her famous Filipino foods. In 2016, she and her family launched a new restaurant, Halo Halo Cafe & Ice Cream Parlor.
After operating her new restaurant for nearly a year and proving herself once again in the food industry, Conching felt it was time to retire.
Cherry & Lee saw this as an opportunity to relaunch their family-run business. In partnership with Cherry's sister and brother-in-law, Jane & Ron, they bought Halo Halo Cafe & Ice Cream Parlor.
With the transfer of ownership from one family to another, Cherry & Lee understood the honor to carry on Conching's legacy. She has given her recipes to Cherry & Lee, and they will continue to serve all of her dishes.
While maintaining the restaurant's current audience, Cherry & Lee also strive to appeal to a younger audience—leveraging their success in desserts and simplifying the restaurant's name to Halo Halo Cafe.
Through warm-friendly customer service and providing both traditional & modern Filipino food, Cherry & Lee look towards creating a well-rounded restaurant for a franchise. So that one day, everyone will be able to enjoy authentic Filipino cuisine at Halo Halo Cafe.
