The best legacies come from the most passionate endeavors and in the food industry, what you put on a plate becomes your defining moment, a calling card that says who you are.
Almost four decades later, Shakey’s is now a successful nationwide franchise with over 100 restaurants. Their latest innovation exhibits a change in image and ambiance to feature the present family-oriented, wholesome, and clean atmosphere. Constantly in tune with their roots, the brand maintains the warmth and familiarity that have made their stores a sensation.
They continue to satisfy loyal customers, while gathering a new following, through their world-famous thin crust pizza and hand-tossed versions.
“Pizza is meant to be shared,” says Vicente L. Gregorio, CEO of Shakey’s. “It is natural to share pizza, big or small, with other people-family, friends, or even strangers.”
Often considered the soul of the Shakey’s brand their pizzas come in various exciting flavors and a variety of crusts. Their Manager’s Choice, Friday Special, Angus Steakhouse, and Belly Buster number among a few of the brand’s more popular variants. Hinging off an exceptional thin or hand-tossed crust and premium ingredients, these choices are rich in flavor and pack on a lot of value.
For Shakey’s, their identity has always been a family restaurant, with pizzas that encourage hearty eating and bonding over a delicious meal. It’s not just their namesake offer, however, that has guests craving for more, but a whole lineup of favorites that have made them the destination for good times and great memories.
Initially developed by four of the food industry’s giants, Shakey’s emerged as an avenue for marketing San Miguel’s newest draft beer. The first Philippine branch opened in 1975 in the city of Makati, soon followed by stores all over the metro.
Of course, pizza isn’t the only thing on offer with Shakey’s. From savory pies to delightful snacks and beverages, there’s always something to sweeten the deal as Shakey’s continued to expand their menu to fit their growing clientele.
Eventually, the brand sought to provide more variety with newer and more stimulating additions to the menu. Their appetizers, such as the Shrimp Poppers, and American Salad and pasta dishes, like Prima Lasagna, gained traction with diners who were pleasantly surprised by fresh selections, still with the same quality, taste, and value.
Shakey’s only continues to innovate, keeping up with the changing mindset of their modern diners. They continue to produce food that leaves a lasting impression, making the Shakey’s name a relevant mainstay in the Metro’s food scene.
Fans also flock to the brand’s awesome twosome Chicken ‘N Mojos for days when the hunger pangs hit hard. These classic mainstays reached high popularity among many, both as in-house treats and via delivery. The brand also introduced yet another complement to their pizzas with the classic Shakey’s Super Shakes.
Current offerings such as their American Salad and Fun Mixes (Lemon Cucumber Cooler and Mixed Berry Slush) give guests something more to look forward to with each visit. Loyal Shakey’s patrons can also avail of greater value-for-money deals through the Pizzanatic Supercard and Great Meal Deals.
