We spent a rainy Father’s Day afternoon at Papa Johns Pizza at Blue Bay Walk but despite the rains we had an enjoyable time. We hadn’t been to Blue Bay Walk before but I had been hearing it was a good place for families to spend the day.
Unfortunately, it was a rainy day so we couldn’t take advantage of the grass and Mr. Sun was hiding from us. We instead checked out the shops and though not all spaces are occupied yet it looks to be a promising place for some shopping and leisure. There was a mini market with various items on sale. We’re sure to make a trip though again to experience it on a sunny day!
In celebration of its 5th year of making better pizzas in the Philippines, world-famous pizza restaurant chain Papa John’s had a fun family day event last June 21 at Blue Bay Walk, Metropolitan Avenue Bay Area in Pasay City.
It was a big day for Papa Johns Pizza as they were raffling off a Mazda 3 Hatchback! The store wide promo ran from January to June and customers who made a minimum P500 purchase were given the chance to win the sleek Mazda 3 Hatchback.
Mr. Paul Soo, Berjaya Philippines Head said the recent car promo affirmed Papa Johns Pizza commitment and gratitude to loyal patrons since the US-leading pizza chain brand opened its doors in the Philippines in 2010.
“When we thought about the promo, we wanted to do something that can give back to the people that helped us grow the brand and the business, for their loyalty and continued patronage to Papa John’s. Since we are on our fifth year, we decided to have a grand car raffle promo and what better car to give away than Mazda which is a very successful, reliable brand as well,” Soo said.
Mr. Soo is also proud to say that Papa John’s, being one of the leading and continuously growing pizza chain brands in the US, has also been steadily gaining stronger market presence in the metro and in nearby city and provincial sites edit amid fierce competition.
“We are currently doing well in the Philippines, and we’ll keep growing here. We are confident in making Papa John’ more known by exploring more potential store locations in Manila. As for products, Papa John’s fans can expect more quality and better tasting pizza variants, as well as more convenient delivery services and enjoyable dining conveniences from us in the months to come,” he concluded.
The event was hosted by DJ Anne of 97.1 WLS FM. In addition to the grand raffle draw, the festive event came loaded with surprise giveaways which were raffled off. There was an overnight stay for two at Berjaya Hotel in Makati and gift certificates. We won a Nestle ice cream voucher!
We were also treated to a day of pizza indulgence and festivities. There was a caricature booth and some awesome street magic. Jael was in awe with magic he witnessed! To be a kid again…
There was a Pizza Eating Contest which Bastian and Kianna joined where they had to try and finish a whole pizza in 60 seconds. Two pairs were hailed the ultimate pizza eating champions and were awarded with gift certificates from Nestle and Papa John’s Pizza.
Mr. Arnold Clavio joined Mr. Soo in choosing and announcing the winner. The Mazda 3 Hatchback was raffled off to Vibien N. Estrada whose entry came from Papa John’s Manila Plaza, Ever Recto outlet.
“We are very happy with the success of the promo. Hopefully, more people will come and get to know and love what Papa John’s can offer in terms of the superior quality of ingredients and homemade freshness of our food products,” Mr. Soo added. Papa John’s will be coming up with an assortment of special deals and other in-store promotions to tie into the anniversary year.
To date, Papa John’s has 18 branches with its newest outlets in Concepcion Uno in Marikina, Circumferential Road in Antipolo, and Aurora Blvd. in Cubao, Quezon City.
