Letran star Fran Yu is selling desserts and making the deliveries himself

Jul 2, 2020

LETRAN's sweet-shooting starting guard is spreading sweetness in the time of quarantine.

Fran Yu has made the most of the quarantine period by roaming the streets of Manila in his trusty motorcycle, dishing out desserts rather than dimes.

After starting out with close friends, the 5-foot-10 Letran playmaker's has expanded his clientele for his Graham cracker-based dessert tubs.

"Nagsimula 'yun sa mga ulam. Ako yung nagluluto, trip-trip lang," Yu told Spin.ph.

"Yung paggawa ng Graham cake, Mother's Day 'yun kasi 'yun ang naging cake namin dito sa bahay. Yun na, naisip na namin na bakit hindi Graham's tapos tinuloy-tuloy na namin."

It only grew from there.

Yu himself mixes the cream for his frozen cakes, may it be for his mango, banana, or Oreo Graham cakes - a championship mix, dare we say.

But it wasn't until Metro Manila was placed under general community quarantine (GCQ) in June that the NCAA Season 95 Finals MVP took on the added role of courier by delivering the orders to costumers from their humble home in Sta. Cruz, Manila.

Of course, a lot were caught by surprise that it was Yu himself who delivers his products.

"Maraming nagulat," the 22-year-old point guard chuckled. "Dapat may picture talaga. Parang pass the message na lang na nagtitinda ako tapos humihingi din ako ng feedback sa kanila."


    Yu is proud of what he's doing and implored fellow athletes to do the same to be able to help their families and make ends meet, especially in this time of crisis.

    "Wala namang masama na magtinda ka kung 'yung magiging resulta ng ginagawa mo eh kumita ka. Malinis na trabaho ito kaysa magnakaw," he said.

    "Diskarte ito para sa pamilya kaya bakit ko ikakahiya? Kung makakatulong ka naman sa mga magulang at sa kanya-kanyang pamilya, bakit naman hindi, di ba? Kaya hinding-hindi ko ikakahiya na nagtitinda ako ng Graham's."

    Bless your heart, Fran.
