  1. I am very interested in a Monterey franchise in Alaminos, Pangasinan. Is that a a good possible site? I believe a Monterey Meat Shop would be a very good draw for all the foreigners in the surrounding area as any existing meat shop including the CSI are totally lacking in display and quality. We actually drive to Dagupan from Bolinao to buy our meat and know many other foreigners that do the same.
