The first pizzeria to open in the country is a place of pride for the Filipino people, and one of the country’s most controversial figures.
Key points:Pizza Hut is set to open a store in the small Philippine town of Camarines Sur on the outskirts of ManilaPizza Shop owner and founder Ramon Ramirez said it was important to make the community proud of their food, while others are unhappyIt’s set to be the Philippines first pizza joint to open outside of the Philippines in more than a decadeMr Ramon said he is excited about opening his first store, and hopes it will be a stepping stone to a bigger business in the future.
“I want to be known as a local and I want to make a difference for the people of Camalines Sur,” Mr Ramon told ABC News Philippines on Thursday.
He added that he has had the opportunity to travel all over the country, but was most excited to set up shop in Camarones Sur, the capital of the far-north island of Mindanao.
“This is a beautiful place to start a business,” he said.
“We will be opening a Pizza Shop for Camarinas Sur.”
It’s a special moment for the entire Philippines and I feel very happy.
“The shop, which will be named Pizza Hut, is set up as part of a project to create jobs and infrastructure for local people, Mr Ramos said.
It’s the first of its kind in the world, he said, and it will serve a large clientele, including local residents.”
The concept is to create a better pizza for Camalinas Sur,” he explained.”
With a Pizza Hut there will be more jobs for Camarais Sur, more infrastructure for Camales Sur, there will also be more opportunities for local businesses to come to the island.
“Mr Ramos added that his business model would not rely on cheap labour, as it would employ local workers.”
But we want to give a good product for our customers, so they will feel good and the community will be happy.””
We are going to work hard to create good jobs, so people are happy.”
But we want to give a good product for our customers, so they will feel good and the community will be happy.
“PizzaShop’s opening is being hailed as a win for local entrepreneursThe first store will be open for business by the end of February, with Mr Ramons first order of business to be opening the first Pizza Hut restaurant in the region.”
Today is a day to celebrate the opening of the first store in Camaline Sur, so we’re going to celebrate that today,” Mr Ramirez said.
Pizza shops have long been a source of pride in the Philippine community, but many residents have expressed concern about the number of jobs available in their local communities.
Local residents have voiced their anger and frustration on social media, with one woman describing the opening as a “big step backwards”.”
There’s so much work to be done,” she wrote on Twitter.”
For the next couple of months, the whole community will feel the pinch of this new business.””
The last year has been a big failure in the areas where Pizza Hut has been in the local community, so I am very worried,” Mr Ramos added.”
Now we’re getting Pizza Hut to set a good example, and that’s a great opportunity for all of us.
