I've attended the grand opening of the 2nd Domino's Pizza store in Silver City near Tiendesitas, Pasig with blogger friends yesterday. Pasig City Vice Mayor Yoyong Martirez with the President of Domino's Pizza Philippines, Mr. Tong Ho formally opened the store with the ribbon cutting ceremonies.
Domino's Pizza in the Philippines used to be a favorite pizza chain in Quezon City when I was in college and I was curious what happened to the chain when it disappeared after I graduated. Korean American businessman Mr. Tong Ho, Domino's Pizza President in the Philippines explained that management issues were in fact the reason why the fastest pizza chain delivery lost its chain of stores before.
What does Domino's Pizza have different? I guess it's their Potato Pizza (P249/7", P349/10", P549/12") topped with mushrooms, sweet corn, bacon and fried potato wedges with mozzarella cheese and cheese drizzle.
We had a taste of Cheese Mania, Margherita, Pepperoni Feast, Extravaganza, Shrimpus and their Potato Pizza on thin crust with Coca-Cola. They also have Big League Combos (P750) with 12" Extravaganza/Domino's Deluxe/Potato Pizza, a choice of 10" Cheese Mania or 10" Pepperoni Feast or 6 pcs of Chicken Wings with 1.5 Coke the consumers.
I prefer among all their choices the Potato Pizza because of the great combination of bacon, mushrooms, sweet corn and potato wedges. I didn't think it'll work since I've always loved my fries or potato wedges separate from my pizza but I actually enjoyed the taste. Domino's Pizza hopes to branch nationwide with 2-3 stores in a month this year. With the promise of fast delivery of 30-minutes guarantee or your pizza is free, I guess it'll really boom its popularity to all Filipinos again like before.
