Ms. Remedios Espiritu started assisting her mother in operating Ristorante Filipino after she
finished a course in Hotel and Restaurant Management. It is a big restaurant located in San Fernando,
Pampanga that seems to be succeeding. She was requested by her mother to prepare a plan for the
expansion of the business. Her mother plans to open a branch within San Fernando and branches in
Tarlac, Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, Bataan, and Zambales after. Remedios has an accountant sister, an industrial
engineer sibling, a chemist brother, and another sibling who is a training director of a company. They are
all employed outside of the family business with a five-year job experience. They all prefer to work with
their mother, if given the opportunity.

Remedios finds it hard to manage the part of the plan wherein the identification of the source of
funding is needed. In addition, their mother does not want to rely on bank loans. Their assets are not
enough to finance a single branch but their mother still insists on opening new branches within two years.
Remedios is considering a change in ownership form to finance the proposed expansion.

cons for each of the proposed form of ownership that may serve as basis for decision-making.

Operating a business is complicated because there is a lot of different factors to consider. In this case, the
owner of the business is a professional and the newly assigned person to assist the owner is her own
daughter. It is hard for the Remedios to disagree with what her mother wants because respect should be
taken into account and she should consider the fact that Mrs. Espiritu is already an expert when it comes
to this job. Even though there are some conflicts, it wouldn’t matter because if you really are a good
handler of business, everything would be in place.
