The Shakey’s Pizza brand and concept was brought into the Philippines by San Miguel Corporation via its subsidiary company International Family Foods Services, Inc. (IFFSI). IFFSI, who owned the franchise right for the country, began the task of growing the brand and awarded the first franchise right to a company called Golden Pizza, Inc. (GPI) owned and headed by Mr. Leopoldo L. Prieto, Sr. On March 15,1975, GPI opened the very first Shakey’s store in the Philippines in Makati Avenue; Ayala Center.

This first ever Shakey’s branch with its great tasting & crisp pizzas, unique chicken and mojos tandem, flowing cold draft beer, cheerful service, and fun atmosphere, became an instant hit in Manila. This first store paved the way for many more very successful branches that eventually made Shakey’s to be known as the Home of the Original Thin Crust Pizza, The World’s Greatest Pizza and has become a household name that it is today.

Over the years, Shakey’s was not spared from economic set – backs and societal change but we have proven that we’re a force to be reckoned with since our rise to success in 2003. We’ve continued to be at the forefront of the business by building one store after the other in key cities nationwide, increasing in sales, profit and eventually breaking industry records in 2011 by being the first food chain to achieve Double-Digit growth in 8 consecutive years.

It was then that we thought to ourselves, “Why stop there?” We set our eyes on a big goal – OPLAN DOUBLE D” achieving Double Digit growth in Double Digit years. Over the past two years, the whole Shakey’s team have put relentless effort, and heart into making this vision into a reality.

Finally, in 2014, we were able to conquer Everest by being the very first in the industry to achieve Double Digit growth in sales in a whopping 10 consecutive years. This victory is a true testament to the strength of the Shakey’s spirit, and to the passion and dedication in keeping our guests continuously WOWed through the years.

In 2016, Century Pacific Group Inc and GIC Private Ltd., the sovereign wealth fund of Singapore has acquired majority of the pizza business under the holding firm Shakey’s Pizza Asia Ventures Inc. (SPAVI) Mr. Christopher T. Po as Chairman. The Prieto family will continue to hold a minority stake in the company.

What’s next for Shakey’s? Well, to date Shakey’s has over 100 stores nationwide and continues to

rapidly grow with a change of vision in mind.
