Red Ribbon makes more sweet moments with 300th store
QUEZON, Philippines – Red Ribbon continues its celebration of its 35th year with the opening of its 300th store in Barangay San Diego Poblacion, along National Highway Gumaca, Quezon last August 30, 2014.
Since its humble beginnings as a hobby-induced business in 1979 in Timog, Quezon City, Red Ribbon has grown to be a proudly Filipino business network under the country’s chain of fast food restaurants, Jollibee Foods Corporation (JFC).
“Opening our 300th store is a milestone for Red Ribbon. We have truly grown from a small local bakeshop to one of the most well-loved bakeshops in the country. We are poised to open more branches to bring more sweet moments to Filipinos,” says Zinnia Rivera, General Manager of Red Ribbon.
Since JFC’s acquisition of the well-loved bakeshop in 2005, Red Ribbon has continued to further its commitment in making celebrations and everyday moments sweeter among families and friends through their products.
“Reaching every corner of the Philippines is part of our long term strategy. Opening our 300th store in Gumaca allows us to reach more Filipinos in Southern Luzon,” added Rivera.
The newly opened store is the company’s third branch in the whole province of Quezon.
A Sweet Peek
On August 24, 2014, a week before the actual opening of the new branch, Red Ribbon gave a sneak peek to the residents of Gumaca on the coming of a Red Ribbon closer to their homes.
Members of Red Ribbon surprised the residents by performing and teaching the Macaroon Dance, popularized by international Filipino artist Apl.De.Ap, to children. A cake competition titled “The Sweetest Dedication Cake” also took place where the mothers and their kids had a hand at placing their own personalized messages on chocolate dedication cakes.
The opening of the 300th store signifies Red Ribbon’s continuous expansion around the country to provide Filipinos a chance to treat the ones they love with well-loved Red Ribbon products. Residents of Gumaca will now be able to enjoy delicious cakes and rolls such as the Black Forest Cake, Triple Chocolate Roll and dedication cakes and pastries such as the Butter Mamon, Ensaimada, and Macaroons for a Cause.
“We continue to grow and identify communities we have not yet tapped to bring our products closer to the homes of Filipinos,” says Rivera.
