Posted on February 2, 2018 By

Joao Pessoa has produced some of the most exceptional, successful entrepreneurs. The entrepreneurs in Joao Pessoa have in some cases been born and raised in the city. One of the beloved entrepreneurs is Roberto Santiago. Roberto Santiago has created many companies thus creating many jobs for the people in and around the city of Joao Pessoa. The employment, social, and economic sectors of the Paraiba government have prospered because of the successful malls in Joao Pessoa. The business is so high that another mall is not needed in Joao Pessoa because it will not be able to compete with the malls that Roberto Santiago has built.

Roberto Santiago was born and raised in Joao Pessoa, Paraiba. As a child, there was nothing like Manaira Shopping Mall in Joao Pessoa. He attended the University Centre of Joao Pessoa to receive his bachelor’s degree in business administration. He got a job working at Café Santa Rosa after he completed his college education. While working at Café Santa Rosa, the desire to venture into entrepreneurship grew inside of him. He left his job to start a cartonnage company. The cartonnage company supplies the packaging needs of any business that is in need. He had so much success with the cartonnage company that he used some of the money he earned to invest in land development.

In 1987, Roberto Santiago bought a piece of property with the hopes of turning it into a profitable mall in Joao Pessoa. The mall was carefully developed for two years before the grand opening in 1989. The mall has been a success since the day that it was opened. Although the mall has undergone many renovations since it began they were only to improve the experiences the people had while visiting the mall. One of the most critical renovations was the addition of a food court to the mall. People can be hungry after they shop, so he added the food court to eliminate the search for food once the people leave the mall.

The mall also has a grand concert hall named the Domus Hall. The Domus Hall has held many concerts, graduations, and other public events. He had the hall built because he wanted not only to be able to serve the people entertainment but whatever the large venue needs of the community may have been.

Roberto Santiago’s Manaira Shopping malls have been successful because he built and designed the mall to cater to the needs of the people in Joao Pessoa and surrounding areas. The Manaira Shopping mall has played a major role in the development of Joao Pessoa and Santiago’s business profile. He continues to amaze the people of Joao Pessoa with malls.
