When a neighbor, who was a pork vendor, failed to sell five remaining kilos of pork, Hizon
offered to process the excess produce into tocino, wherein cured pork is marinated in sweet red sauce for meat preservation.
After the devastating 1991 Pinatubo eruption, Hizon
offered to build 100 houses in her
four-hectare lot in Cabalantian
for families who could not afford to rebuild their shelter.Later on, she established the Ang Bagong (The New) Cabalantian Foundation and deposited over P6 million to attend to the needs of their desolate townsfolk.
Pampanga's Best rests on Apong Lolet's vision to serve the Filipino people with innovative products and services "by adapting the best technology, quality, customer service and value" and "with passion towards service quality and customer empowerment."
Over the years, whenever people are curious enough to know her
business secret, only one answer suffices."I became successful through the one and true God, from whence all life comes, to whom all life ends."Fruitfully instilling entrepreneurial passion through good values and compassion for others that ignited Pampanga's business force, Lolita Hizon will be recognized by President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo and Presidential Consultant for Entrepreneurship Jose Concepcion III as one of Pampanga's Most Inspiring Entrepreneurs at the Go Negosyo sa Pampanga, slated on October 8, 2007 at the Bren Guiao Convention Center in San Fernando.The citation is given by the Philippine Center for Entrepreneurship for the outstanding entrepreneurial revolution in the province of Pampanga.
