Good news to SM Manila mall-goers: “Teresita’s of San Fernando” is now open!
The new branch located at the lower ground floor level is Teresita’s 11th branch.
“We take pride in bringing the best of home-cooked meals with authentic Kapampangan taste. Just like their second home Teresita’s SM Manila aims to delight guests who wish to enjoy simple, classic but affordable dishes from the country’s food capital,” says Ryan Razon, chief executive offer (CEO) of Nozars, Inc., operator of “Teresita’s of San Fernando” chain of restaurants.
Teresita’s originated in San Fernando in 2002 but it was only in 2011 when Ryan’s family decided to open their first Metro Manila outlet along Tomas Morato in Quezon City named after Ryan’s mother Teresita, whose family operates a successful catering business in Pampanga.
Their first outlet in San Fernando, a mere hole-in-the-wall, gained instant popularity with their Halu-Halo and Palabok.
After their first venture in Quezon City, Teresita’s opened at Waltermart in Munoz, also in Quezon City on 2012, followed by Vito Cruz a year later.
In 2014, they opened their first halu-halo cart in Festival Mall, Alabang.
Last year Teresita’s opened at SM Light Mall and Robinson’s Forum in Mandaluyong City, SM BF Paranaque City, and SM North Edsa Annex in Quezon City, and SM Molino in Cavite, and SM Southmall Kiosk.
Teresita’s restaurants are simple, unassuming, and caters to guests who enjoy heirloom recipes.
Unlike many local restaurants where food are for sharing, Teresita’s serves meals good for one – Kare-Kare, Embutido, Boneless Bangus, among others, which go with rice at very affordable prices, between P110 to P130.
“We hope to open more branches in Metro Manila. Expansion has been brisk in the last four years. And we have been getting encouraging feedback from our customers,” added Razon.
During the first quarter of 2016, Teresita’s hopes to open two new outlets – at Petron NLEX in Marilao, Bulacan and Petron Clark in Pampanga.
