Adriane Niel Cuarte Igana started selling sampaguita when he was just 11 years old.

He wanted to earn some money to help his family make ends meet. His favorite spot is the Jollibee branch in Baliuag Junction in Bulacan. He’s selling sampaguita there for almost seven years.


His frequent customers were Rhyzz Canasa-Balanday and her husband and who would have thought that fate really brought them back to meet each other not as a seller of sampaguita but now a Jollibee crew on the same Jollibee he used to sell flowers outside.

Rhyzz recall, as the crew is cleaning their table, her husband asked her about the kid that used to sell them Sampaguita around the area. They were wondering where the kid is up to now.


So nag dinner kmi kanina ng asawa ko sa Jollibee junction Baliwag. Ang daming tao halos wala ng vacant na table. Tapos may isang vacant table n puno pa ng food waste tapos my isang crew n lumapit para linisin. While waiting na ma cleanup ung table tinanong ako ni husband kng nasan na kaya yung batang sampaguita vendor n laging nag aalok samin ng sampaguita every time n kakain kami dun or mag papa gas sa shell oh mag grocery sa puregold. Tapos biglang sagot ng service crew, “wala na po sya kasi po andito na po ako sa loob”. Turn out na yung crew n nag lilinis ng table nmin ay yung batang sampaguita vendor n suki nmin. Lesson learned: basta masipag ka at may pangarap lahat posible. Hndi na ko mag tataka kung one day manager na sya. 🙂 #kwentongjollibee #jolliserye
