About Master Siomai

The company behind the franchise, MC Master Siomai Hut Inc., began in 1999 as a seller of siomai and burger patties to businesses and resellers in the local public market. The business evolved and eventually ventured into the siomai food cart business, initially setting up outlets in South Recto and Grand Central Caloocan. In 2007, Master Siomai began franchising and now boasts of several hundreds of food cart outlets nationwide.

Its primary product is siomai, one of the most popular Chinese snack food known to Filipinos. Despite offering a staple Chinese food, Master Siomai uses Japanese-themed food cart in the hopes of giving customers the feel of ordering from a Japanese food stall.
