Red Ribbon reaches more families with Nasugbu branch

Manila, Philippines—Red Ribbon opened the doors to its first store in Nasugbu,Batangas—along JP Laurel Street, Barangay Poblacion III—last November 21, 2014 in time for the Christmas season.

The well-loved bakeshop’s branch in Nasugbu is the company’s 10th store in the whole of Batangas. The newly opened store is highly accessible to residents of Nasugbu as it is situated nearby the Town Hall, Town Plaza and the city’s Market. The branch is also close to one of the largest elementary schools in the city, Nasugbu West Central, and is also a 5-minute drive to Batangas State University—one of the most populated state universities in the province.

“Reaching more families is one of our main ambitions in Red Ribbon. By opening a branch in Nasugbu, we wish to make more Batangueño families’ celebrations special through our delectable cakes and pastries, especially in time for the holidays,” says Zinnia Rivera, General Manager of Red Ribbon.

The week before the opening of the new branch, Red Ribbon conducted a pre-opening event involving the Nasugbu West Central School and the Office of the Mayor. Red Ribbon organized games and introduced Buttermon, their first ever mascot, to over a thousand students and other Batangueños.

When Red Ribbon opened its doors in Nasugbu, guests were delighted to free slices of the bakeshop’s well-loved, cherry-chocolatiest Black Forest Cake. The bakeshop’s crewmembers surprised the guests during the opening as they performed a dance number.

“We are poised to continue bringing more sweet moments to families by opening more Red Ribbon stores”

The opening of Red Ribbon’s store in Nasugbu, Batangas signals the dedication of the local bakeshop in reaching more Filipinos, providing them the chance to treat their loved ones with delectable cakes and pastries. Residents of Nasugbu will now be able to make their celebrations extraordinary with well-loved products of the bakeshop 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.

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.

Moms set themselves as the best examples of what it means to love unconditionally as they always accept their sons and daughters despite the mistakes they have made. Through the dedication of mothers in ensuring the happiness of their families and by not showing signs of being tired, children have seen the strength of their moms.  Simply, for most of us, our mothers are one of our greatest idols.

Red Ribbon’s Newest Product is a Combination of Two Filipino Classics

Pandesal has always been a part of the lives of Filipinos. From morning breakfasts to afternoon snacks, the Filipino bread is enjoyed by children and adults alike. Though pandesal is delicious on its own, Filipinos have all found different ways to take delight on the classic bread. Children have seen their parents dip their pandesal in coffee every morning. Some Filipinos feast on their pandesals with the fresh kesong puti. There are also some who stuff their pandesal with slices of hotdogs, for a more filling snack.

Another Filipino snack that has won the hearts and filled the street corners of Filipinos is the pork barbecue. Its savory, barbecue taste paired with your choice of either sweet or spicy sauce or just plain vinegar dip makes this mouth-watering street food another Filipino classic.

Realizing that Filipinos enjoy the classic soft bread paired with various fillings and spreads, well-loved, local bakeshop, Red Ribbon, introduces a new savory product which Filipinos will surely enjoy—Red Ribbon’s Pork Pandesal! The Pork Pandesal is Red Ribbon’s take on the classic pandesal, pairing it with pork barbecue. Combining Filipino favorite snacks, pandesal and pork barbecue, Red Ribbon offers a soft, moist bread, loaded with chunky bits of pork barbecue.

Stuffed with generous amount of pork filling, Red Ribbon’s Pork Pandesal is the perfect morning and afternoon snack for your children. The Pork Pandesal can be enjoyed as a snack by your children for an affordable price of P23.00 per piece. As the soft bread is packed with pork barbecue, it could be enjoyed as a savory meal on its own. The pandesal could also be easily stored in a lunchbox, making it convenient for children to bring the new snack anywhere they go. When your child is taking a break, he could simply take out the pandesal and consume it instantly as it is ready-to-eat on its own—no need for plates or utensils.

Starting April 28, 2014, Filipino families could have better mornings, and fun-filled afternoons with Red Ribbon’s tasty and filling, pork-stuffed pandesal, which will be available in select Red Ribbon stores in Metro Manila and Luzon. Enjoy Red Ribbon’s Pork Pandesal with a cup of coffee, or a glass of chilled juice every morning with the family. You can also have your children bring the Pork Pandesal as their baon for summer classes or family outings. With its great value for money and as a convenient, savory and hearty snack, Red Ribbon’s Pork Pandesal is another Filipino classic meant to be enjoyed by the whole family.

And always, you celebrated memorable achievements at the dining table with the whole family, finishing with the delicious celebration cake for dessert.

On Graduation Day, mark sweet endings and new beginnings with Red Ribbon’s Black Forest Cake, available in all Red Ribbon branches for only P550.
