French Baker 25th Anniversary + Win a 10-day trip to Paris for 4!

Monday, November 10, 2014

Last Tuesday, November 4 2014 
I am very happy to witnessed the grand celebration of the 
25th Anniversary of The French Baker Philippines.

It was hosted by the beautiful TV host Issa Litton, which was jam-packed with a crowd
 composed of public servants, dignitaries, members of the media, and Koa’s family and friends. 

Among the most prominent names who graced the event were former senator Edgardo Angara, Sen. Paolo “Bam” Aquino, and Trade and Industry Undersecretary 
Atty. Victorio Dimagiba, to name a few.
Mr. Johnlu G. Koa, professor turned entrepreneur, and now Founder and CEO of The French Baker launched the “Visit Paris in Summer 2015” raffle promo together with the Insight Vacations, Rajah Travel Corporation and Eithad Airways.

 This much-anticipated promo marks French Baker’s 25 years of bringing European-style breads in the mass market, and the company’s way of saying ‘thank you’ to the customers who have embraced and supported the patisserie over the years.

They want to give back to the loyal customers the same French experience not just through the French Baker products  but by giving one lucky winner a chance to see and feel for themselves the beauty and charm of Paris together with their family and friends.

And now, the moment we've been all waiting for!
How to win the 10 day trip to Paris for 4? Yes it's 10 days!!

“Visit Paris in Summer 2015”
 gives one lucky winner and three of his companions an 
all-expense paid 10-day trip to Paris through luxury escorted tours provider Insight Vacations, together with Rajah Travel Corporation, and Etihad Airways as the official airline
Every P500 worth of dine-in and take-out single receipt from
 any The French Baker branch entitles the customer one raffle coupon. 

The promo will run from November 5, 2014 until March 15, 2015. 
Grand Draw will be on March 20, 2015.

25 The French Baker gift certificates worth P5,000 each are also up for grabs.

The grand prize winner will get to spend at least three days in each of France’ key cities,
 including Paris, the old Roman City of Nimes; and finally in Monte Carlo. 

 “People may ask why four tickets for one winner, and not four winners with one ticket each?”
Koa furthers. “The reason is that we wanted the winner to see the charms of France and experience that magical feeling together with family and friends, and not just by themselves.”

 Etihad Airways will fly the winner in utmost class.
 “Our winner will experience luxury on air, with the first-class amenities and features of our planes,” said Jackie Lim-Gonzaga of Etihad Airways. 

Insight Vacations also launched its 2015 itinerary and magazine,
 which is available through Rajah Travel Corporation.

Bernie Arnaiz, Assistant Managing Director for Rajah Travel Corporation, 
together with Lim, shared with the night’s audience the kind of luxury the winner
 can expect with the launch of their Signature Events.

This marks signature experiences from handpicked Signature Hotels; specially-arranged Signature Evenings of Entertainment; and booked Signature Dining in authentic and local restaurants. 

Guess who spiced up the night during the 25th Anniversary of The French Baker?
Well if you guys were following me on my social media accounts, you must know who i am talking to. It's none other than, The Mr. Pure Energy! Mr. Gary Valenciano.

People even joined him sing & dance including me!
It is my first time to see him perform live onstage and all i can say is WOW!

Representatives from The French Baker’s partner foundations were also present during the event, also part of the company’s tradition of paying it forward to deserving organizations. These include PGH Medical Foundation, represented by its president Dr. Gregorio Alvior Jr.; GoNegosyo’s Jack Umaga; SM Foundation Inc., represented by  Executive Director Debbie Sy and SM Foundation Inc. Executive Director for Education Linda Atayde; and the EJ Litton Foundation, with its founder Johnny Litton.

The night was also highlighted with Koa’s award for the Outstanding Category of the Asia-Pacific Entrepreneurship Awards (APEA) held just the night before.  APEA is an awards ceremony organized by Enterprise Asia that honors entrepreneurs in the Asia-Pacific region who have shown outstanding leadership and innovation when it comes to managing their businesses.

Koa is one of the very first Filipino entrepreneur in the
 history of APEA to be given the coveted award.

Raffle prizes were also given away courtesy of
 San Miguel Great Food Solutions, Fonterra Brands, and Moulinex.
A ‘Selfie’ contest also went on during the event and luckily me and my friend monica won!

Today, The French Baker has 52 branches all over the country, and has expanded to include The French Baker “Salon de The” edition.

Again, I would like to congratulate The French Baker for the 25 years of
 giving us best quality products. Looking forward for more years to come!

Don't forget to join the raffle promo, Imagine for only P500 worth of dine-in and take-out purchase you'll have a chance to win a luxury trip together with your family and friends.

Try out your luck and let's support The French Baker all the way!
Happy 25th Anniversary The French Baker.


I would like to thank The French Baker Philippines for inviting me
