Baskin Robbins shops finally hit the Philippines, no longer in the form of just tubs, as what we used to see in some supermarkets.
Like all other food establishments today, competition can be tough for ice cream shops because apart from the challenge of pleasing the Pinoys’ palettes, which have started to become more discriminating, they will have to deal with the fact that ice cream parlors have suddenly mushroomed especially in commercial centers in Metro Manila.
Of all the ice cream specialty stores that I could think of, Baskin Robbins would stand out when it comes to its attraction to kids. Perhaps it’s the pink and blue color theme or the ice cream cake designs which are mostly for kids.
It’s no wonder that when my son and I passed by a branch in Greenbelt 5, he couldn’t help himself and asked for a cone-full of his own concoction.
In addition, it’s great to know that Baskin Robbins Philippines is also participating in CSR endeavors, such as when it came out with ‘smiley cakes’ wherein 20% of its proceeds will support ‘Operation Smile,’ a foundation that helps children with cleft deformities. Kudos and keep up the good work!
