McDonald’s Philippines recently marked an important milestone as it opened a one-of-a-kind store in Tagaytay City. Located along Tagaytay Calamba Road, the new store greets locals and tourists with a unique, inviting structure and interiors.
McDonald's Philippines President and Chief Executive Officer Kenneth S. Yang took the lead in opening the new store. Chief Happiness Officer Ronald McDonald and the entire gang were also present to welcome customers.
The store’s first batch of customers enjoyed performances and hourly promos of free McDonald’s food items like the BigMac, Cheeseburger, Burger McDo, Coke McFloat, and Regular Fries. Celebrities Arjo Atayde, JC Santos, Janine Gutierrez, Ruru Madrid, Gabbi Garcia, James Wright, James Teng, and Lucho Ayala also joined in the fun and surprised customers as they served from the front-counter and drive-thru window.
"We envisioned this store to be a modern yet comfortable place where our customers, both young and old, can enjoy. The entire McDonald’s family is beaming with pride and excitement as we finally open its doors," said Yang. "With McDonald’s Tagaytay Calamba Road, we are giving customers a whole new McDonald’s experience as they bask in the beauty that Tagaytay has to offer, with the same great-tasting food and excellent service that McDonald's Philippines has upheld for the past 35 years.”
With Tagaytay being a famous weekend or day trip destination for families and friends, McDonald's wanted to match the experience that people are looking for when they go here with a store design that’s fresh and unique. Materials like raw concrete, brick, and wood were used to give the store a strong connection to the natural beauty of Tagaytay. The store’s al fresco areas show a thoughtful integration of landscape features that serve as a relaxing backdrop for the picturesque view of the Taal lake.
Another element that differentiates this store is the floor dedicated entirely to McCafe – a first in the country – where customers can enjoy a wide array of specialty coffee drinks, cakes, and other pastries. With the Taal lake as the view, the place is perfect for relaxing bonding moments made even better with McCafe’s signature Cappuccino, Americano, Iced Latte, Double Choco Frappe, and the new “Serenade” and “Medley” combos which are Ham & Egg Mayo Croissant and Cappuccino, and Pesto Chicken Ciabatta and McCafe House Blend Iced Tea, respectively.
McDonald’s Tagaytay Calamba Road, located at 3120 Tagaytay Calamba Rd. Brgy. San Jose, Tagaytay City, is open daily from 7AM-2AM.
