The founder of the 2003-founded company Mang Inasal from Ilo-ilo City, Edgar Sia II was included in the list of the Philippines Richest according to the latest list released by Fortune Magazine with a net worth of $85 million. He is the youngest member of the Philippines millionaire’s club listed on the world’s most reliable magazine Fortune Magazine.

The 34-year-old founder of Mang Inasal was the main man behind one of the Philippines most successful restaurant chain famous for its roasted chicken. The Mang Inasal fast-food chain is the country’s third most popular chain with a total of 380 stores. The youngest Filipino millionaire founded Mang Inasal when he was just 26-years-old. He was a former college drop-out.

The Ilo-ilo native Injap Sia sold 70% of Mang Inasal to the Philippines most popular food chain, Jollibee Foods Corporation (JFC) for a staggering amount of $68 million last year.
