Cat-approved Goodest

Did you know that cats are picky-eaters, too? 

These independent felines tend to be snobbish but once you win their affection, then they are yours for life. Of course, one such way of winning that coveted feline love and loyalty is thru the stomach. And most of the time, if the cat didn't fancy the food that you are offering, they will not eat it.

Student Meal Ba? Mang Inasal's "Ihaw-Sarap Savers" is Perfect!

Back to school means attending face-to-face classes or hybrid set-up. Either way, students will be getting an allowance again. 

Alas, not every one can enjoy unli-allowance and the struggle is real if you're a student on a budget. Say 'sana ol' no more with these budgeting tips to make most of your allowance:

1. Ilakad mo na lang. If you can walk to school, then do it. Not only it will give you health benefit but the extra cash can come in handy for your next lunch break.

2. Worth it ba? Think thrice before you buy that expensive snack or coffee just because it's 'gram-perfect,' but will eventually leave your wallet empty.

foodpanda @8: Eight Interesting Facts About foodpanda

Food delivery platforms such as foodpanda has been a big help during the lockdowns, and it has continuously providing its service so that its customers will enjoy convenience in the comfort of their homes or workplace. 

As the leading quick commerce digital platform, foodpanda lets you order from your favorite restaurants and shops offering a wide variety of choices- meals, snacks, groceries, and other daily essentials. With 8 years of delivering food and more in the Philippines, life would never be the same without our favorite pink panda brand that has captured the hearts (and tummies) of many Filipinos. But aside from satisfying your cravings, your curiosity will also be captured by these mind-blowing facts about the country's go-to online food and groceries delivery app. 

Here are 8 interesting facts about foodpanda:

1. Pink is the new Orange

Pink is such a lovable panda color and easy to recognize. But did you know that it was originally orange before 2017? The fuschia-pink look is definitely a lot of fun, and clearly shows that foodpanda is ever-growing, expanding, and not afraid to take that big leap to cater to all of your food needs. 

2. Leadership at a crucial time

Transitions are hard enough to begin with, but to do it at the most crucial of times would require exceptional skills- one that Daniel Marogy, managing director of foodpanda Philippines, proved to have when he joined the team a day before the lockdown. "That was a very challenging time for me, but it was made bearable because of the competitive foodpanda team led by the very compassionate leaders and dedicated team members who helped me steer the ship in the right direction."

3. Revolutionizing the food delivery space

foodpanda was the first online delivery service in the Philippines to house all of your favorite restaurants in an app and deliver food right at your doorstep with just a few taps on your mobile phone. Before foodpanda, do you remember how you would collect delivery hotline numbers, so you know who to call when ordering food? Or how frustrating it is that some of your faves are not available for delivery? Now, Ka-Panda riders not only deliver the meals you're craving, but so much more- you can shop for groceries from pandamart, pick-up your ordered food if you're in the area, or enjoy exclusive discounts for dine-in offers from their restaurant partners. 

4. Putting the digital in digital delivery

It's called quick commerce for a reason because in as fast as 30 minutes or even less, your order is already at your door. The reason behind this fast delivery service aside from having a massive fleet of riders, bikers, scooter riders and even walkers, is that foodpanda pioneered the use of internet connection to their vendors. Prior to that, other online food delivery services had to manually use fax and call center agents to relay the orders to the restaurants, so imagine how long it would take. As the first one to automate the ordering process, they definitely transformed the way online food deliveries work so your food will be delivered still hot and fresh- just the way you like it. 

5. Shing the spotlight on dark kitchens

The term dark kitchen might sound scary but it means a delivery-only restaurant. These are food brands that don't have a physical store, just take-out outlets designed to deliver only. For foodies who are tired of eating from the same restaurants, you might want to try foodpanda's concept brands for your next meal. They are present in key cities in Metro Manila and the North Luzon area. 

6. You can never go wrong with pizza and burger

Any time is pizza and burger o'clock! It's probably why these two fast-food staples hold a special in foodpanda's 8-year journey in the country. The very first order to be placed in the app is none other than everyone's OG snack, pizza, while topping the order list in the app are burgers. As the leader in the online food delivery marketplace, foodpanda continues to offer food items that will meet the fast-paced lifestyle and current needs of their customers. 

7. Employee #1 is still with them

Kristine Luneta, who is part of the Commercial team, currently holds the title of foodpanda's longest-tenured employee. Like the company, she is also celebrating her 8th year anniversary with them as employee #1. When asked what made her stay that long, she shared that- "I am drawn to how progressive the mindset is and how connected the people are."

8. FP = For the People

Making a big difference in the community is also part of the company's advocacies. One of the many initiatives they do to nurture and help the communities they serve is the "BuyAnihan Palengke" program, aimed at assisting enterprising Filipinos become resellers of fresh produce sourced directly from local farmers. To date, more than 10,000kg of fresh produce have been sold to consumers at an affordable price through various partnerships with local government units since the program was launched last year. 

For 8 years, foodpanda has been a prominent presence in the digital food space in the Philippines- and they vow to continue to deliver food, groceries, and more for many years to come. 

Time to celebrate with foodpanda's Pau-tastic birthday: be on the lookout for surprises and announcements for special treats made just for you!
