DONUT monsters, rejoice! J.CO Donuts and Coffee just opened another branch last week, this time at Eastwood City, Libis, Quezon City, so people who live East of Metro Manila can now have delicious donuts within their reach. The store, the seventh in the Philippines and easily J.CO Philippines’ biggest store, has created a donut-laden sweet path to the East, serving customers in Quezon City as well as Pasig, Cainta, Antipolo and further on.
What’s more: This new branch of J.CO Donuts and Coffee now makes J.CO donuts, freshly brewed Italian coffee, cold coffee and tea beverages, and frozen yogurt treats available 24/7. Yes, 24/7! It’s the first donut store – and the first donut brand, at that – to attempt 24/7 operations, and its owners are confident that it will be a hit among donut lovers. After all, the six J.CO outlets that came before it have been such huge successes that queues for soft, fluffy and delicious J.CO donuts have become commonplace in all of its stores.
Now, with J.CO Eastwood City’s 24/7 operations, customers craving for its freshly made donuts can now have it at any time of the day – or night. No need to wait for the store’s opening time to be first in line. No need to rush to the store to catch it before it closes for a box of delicious donuts to bring home. You can have it whenever you want it.
This new Eastwood City store serves the full range of J.CO donuts, including the ever-popular Al Capone (signature soft bite donut topped with Belgian white chocolate and a sprinkling of roasted almond slices), Green Tease (donut filled with green tea cream, topped with green tea icing and decorated with white chocolate swirls), Oreology (white chocolate topping fully covered with ground bits of dark Oreo cookies), Strawberry Caviar Choco (strawberry-choco topping and crisp chocolate bits), Berry Spears (cream cheese filling, strawberry sauce and white chocolate topping), Tiramisu (espresso dessert-inspired creation with tiramisu-flavored filling and topping and a light sprinkling of cocoa), Heaven Berry (strawberry cream donut topped with swirls of white chocolate), and Chocolate Caviar Choco (hazelnut-flavored chocolate glaze with crispy chocolate bits).
It also carries J.CO’s whole range of hot and cold beverages, as well as J.COOL frozen yogurt treats with whatever toppings you fancy.
The new store was officially opened last week, in the presence of Johnny Andrean, who founded and opened the first J.CO Donuts and Coffee store in Jakarta, Indonesia, back in 2005. Also on hand to welcome guests were CFI president Oszen Chan, chairman Carlos Chan, vice chairman Edgar Sia, first vice president and division head of Megaworld’s commercial division Kevin Tan, J.CO CFI Philippines VP for operations Trina Lim, and marketing assistants Alvene Ngo and Lesley Chan.
The store opening was made even more exciting by J.CO, which treated guests from the media to a hands-on donut- and beverage-making workshop. Each guest had an opportunity to personally make three signature donuts – Al Capone, Oreology and Green Peace – as well as a cold beverage. Everyone had fun making their own donuts and beverage, including me.
J.CO Donuts and Coffee’s other stores are located at SM Megamall, SM Mall of Asia, Greenbelt, SM City Fairview, TriNoma and Alabang Town Center.
