Welcome to Cassalu!
Cassalu started as a meeting place where families, friends and communities come together and touch base.
Now it is a sought after, iconic brand for everyone – from those who only want to catch up and share a brief exchange of conversations to those who want to slow down the hustle, celebrate life and create heartwarming stories over artisanal cheesecakes, scrumptious dishes, specialty coffee and delicious beverages.
Noel and Loren were both college students when they started a small, home-based pastry business in 2007. With only 5,000 pesos as their initial capital, Loren bakes and Noel sells; that was their humble beginning.
Loren, who is a Certified Public Accountant, has always dreamt of pursuing to put up a food business due to her passion for cooking and baking. She is fond of curling up with gastronomic books, experimenting recipes at home and enrolling in short culinary courses.
Noel, on the other hand, was a graduate of Business Management. He always had the passion for business, grit and resilience. One day, Loren baked cheesecakes for Noel. Instead of saying “ang sarap”, he exclaimed “Benta natin ito!”. Obviously he thought that the cheesecakes were delicious, but having that entrepreneur mindset, his outburst was that the cheesecakes will surely be a hit, impressive and extraordinarily delicious enough to be sold.
Delighted to see that their family and friends were enjoying their cheesecakes and pastries, they started investing in kitchen tools and decided to join night markets and christmas bazaars. As such, they have raised some funds from what they sell. The number of customers continuously drawn to their delicious cakes and pastries, grew bigger.
With “family” and “celebrations” at the heart of what they do, they decided to run their own food corporation, RNL Food Concepts Inc.
Initially, they launched Snack Attack, which serves exciting snacks around the country. It started as a local on-the-go snacks store in one of the busiest corners of Las Piñas City. What was thought to be just another one of the small businesses they started, quickly became a national sensation in less than a year.
This ignited into an exciting and extraordinary business venture: Cassalu, the family-oriented, premium brand under the umbrella of RNL Food Concepts Inc.
Cassalu, which is named after their children Cassandra and Lucas, also sounds like the tagalog word kasálo which means “a person with whom one shares”.
Founders Noel and Loren, opened the doors of Cassalu to Filipinos in 2018 because of their shared passion and value on “spending quality time with families” and “holding festive celebrations”.
Up until today, these Filipino cultures and values have always been dear and staple to the couple’s hearts – a way of life. This is what Cassalu is all about.
