J.CO Donuts & Coffee has made splashes since opening in 2012, and with bold moves to expand north and south, east and west to the other regions of the Philippines, J.CO finally comes to the Visayas with not one but two stores to simultaneously open on September 2, 2014, at the major hubs of SM City Cebu and Ayala Center Cebu, Cebu City.
J.CO opens with a big bang as it celebrates its arrival in one of the most dynamic and upbeat cities in the Philippines with surprise give-aways of free donuts for the first 50 customers of both of its two newest stores (SM City Cebu & Ayala Center). With no less than a huge crowd, the first three J.CO-ers at both stores even received a bountiful 1-year supply pass of J.CO’s wonderful treats of donuts and coffee.
Cebuanos can now take their time in indulging in the J.CO lifestyle concept with its innovative range of donuts with their quirky names, interesting cups of J.COFFEE beverages, and cool servings of J.COOL frozen yogurt. Everyone was treated to an all-out J.CO treatment as the bustling sights and sounds of freshly-made donuts and hand-crafted beverages surrounded them and were served one after another filling the air with a mix of energizing, roasted coffee scents and the wafting warm, cozy aroma of the infamous donuts. Signature J.CO treats like Alcapone, with its white Belgian chocolate and roasted Californian almond slices on top of J.CO’s trademark soft-bite donut, and Jcoccino, J.CO’s own version of the cappuccino, made their presence known among the multiple sets of snug and relaxing seating.
Starting as a concept by Indonesian entrepreneur Johnny Andrean which came alive with its first branch in Jakarta, Indonesia in 2005, J.CO has since grown to open up more branches across the region such as Malaysia and Singapore. By 2012, J.CO reached the Philippines with its local exclusive franchise rights and operations held by Contemporain Foods, Inc. With these two newest stores right in the heart of the Visayas region, J.CO marks another milestone as the brand touted as Southeast Asia’s fastest-growing coffee chain finds itself nestled among the company of the equally buzzing cityscape of Cebu.
Offering perfectly-paired treats and cozy nooks, J.CO will surely make its splash felt and lastingly settle in the hearts of Cebuanos.
