Shawarma Shack CEO at Rising Tigers “People To Watch 2023”

One of the young leaders of this generation with proven success. The person behind the success of Shawarma Shack is its Founder, President, and CEO, Walther Uzi Buenavista. In the seven years that Buenavista has been managing the business, his direction is always laser-focused on his three main motivations: Growth, Innovation, and Employment.


Walther with his proven success has been named as part of “People To Watch 2023” under the most distributed local magazine right now at National Bookstores, Rising Tigers Magazine.


According to the CMO of the magazine, Andria Terese Nicolas, “I look up to our roster of leaders, what they all have in common is that they are all young visionaries, and dedicated individuals who worked towards their purpose. After all, just like what Lewis Carol said “ One of the secrets of life is that all that is worth doing is what we do for others.”




Thus, what started as a simple food stall in Divisoria in February 2015 has now become a leading innovator in the food cart business. Buenavista's "distinctive visioning ability" facilitated the growth of the company.

This growth was also fueled by his desire to bring their products closer to the customers. Shawarma Shack now has stores in key locations across the country with over 700 branches and still counting. "It presented a significant growth in terms of augmenting the demand from our customers and expanding enterprise sales, Buenavista pointed out.
