Rich classic flavors, real value: the Jollibee Burger Steak

Combination of unbeatable taste and local flavor behind timeless fast-food offering

For the longest time, the global fast-food scene has one strict rule for beef patties: they only belong between burger buns.

But in a country like the Philippines, a meal can never be considered a proper one without our favorite grain: rice. Most of the local dishes go well with a serving of white rice and a splash of flavorful sauce or broth.

In 1995, Jollibee—the country’s top fast-food chain and proud homegrown Pinoy brand—brought together a fast-food favorite and a Pinoy staple to create a new classic offering: the Burger Steak. Made with 100% beef patty seasoned to suit Pinoy tastes, drizzled with a flavorful mushroom gravy (a time-tested flavor pairing used the world over: beef and mushroom), and served with white rice, the Burger Steak was an instant hit for diners looking for their kanin-and-ulam fix.

The Jollibee Burger Steak was inspired by something that many Pinoys know to be true: a flavor-packed, saucy ulam served with steamed white rice really hits the spot,” said Cathleen Capati, Jollibee Core Category Marketing Director. “But that’s the beauty of that idea. It seemed so simple, but nobody else did that over twenty years ago. For me, Jollibee only proved that we truly know and understand the Pinoy palate.”

Today, the Burger Steak remains to be a consistent Jollibee best-seller, with hundreds and hundreds of meals sold each day in 1,000 Jollibee stores nationwide. The rich classic flavors that this dish delivers is just one reason for its enduring popularity, as the fact that it has remained very affordable for over two decades continues to attract customers, too.

“Aside from the Burger Steak delivering a truly beefy-linamnam, saucy-sarap dining experience every time, it delivers great value, too,” added Ms. Capati. “For only 50 pesos, you get delicious ulam and rice for a truly satisfying meal.”

Experience the beefy-linamnam and saucy-sarapgoodness of the Burger Steak for yourself today. The Jollibee Burger Steak is available for dine-in, take-out, delivery, and drive-thru transactions, with prices starting at P50.00* for the Solo Meal.

Epson Launches a New Force in Enterprise printing

New business inkjet printers powered by Epson’s PrecisionCore Printhead Technology

Epson Philippines is poised to reform business printing protocols for the medium to large enterprise segment with the introduction of the company’s latest printing innovations, the new Replaceable Ink Pack System (RIPS) Business Inkjet printers, the WorkForce Pro WF-C869R and Epson’s first high-speed linehead Multi-Function inkjet printer for enterprise printing, the WorkForce Enterprise series, WF-C20590 and WF-C17590

(L-R) Jester Cruz, Product Management Department Head, Epson Philippines; Cherry Suarez, Product Manager for Business Inkjets, Epson Philippines; Cris Sanchez, Sales Division Head, Epson Philippines; Ed Bonoan, Senior General Manager for Marketing Division, Epson Philippines; Siew Jin Kiat, General Manager (Southeast Asia), Printers, Visual Instruments and Wearable Product Division, Epson Singapore.

The new products, unveiled recently at Shangri-La at the Fort in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, promises to provide more options on duplex printing, A3 color printing, as well as high-speed printing in the category where laser copiers remain as traditional tools.

The event, “A New Force in Enterprise Printing has Arrived”, brings into focus Epson’s drive to provide better enterprise printing using its flexible technology that can keep up with today’s business demands on durability, reliability, cost savings and lowered environmental impacts.

(L-R) Jester Cruz, Product Management Department Head, Epson Philippines; Roy Catana, Pre-Sales Engineer, Epson Philippines; Ed Bonoan, Senior General Manager for Marketing Division, Epson Philippines; Cris Sanchez, Sales Division Head, Epson Philippines.
The new Epson printers were revealed during the program via a lights and movement show, treating the audience to a visual experience. Side-by-side panels in the venue showcased the printing superiority of the new products. The launch featured two sessions with a lunch unveiling for media and a primer for corporate partners, dealers, distributors in the evening. 

“The development of this new category of printers was initiated after a thorough study of the needs and concerns of the medium to large enterprise segment. Major factors that enterprises always consider are speed, quality and running cost. In addition to that, Epson has looked into how to significantly reduce power consumption, use fewer parts for less maintenance and enhance document security. That is why Epson made precise innovations to ensure that each detail of the product really makes a difference in addressing these concerns,” explains Mr. Ed Bonoan, Senior General Manager and Marketing Head, Epson Philippines.

The two Epson Business Inkjet Printer models, WF-C20590 and WF-C17590 feature Epson’s most advanced inkjet technology, the proprietary PrecisionCore Linehead that makes high speed printing possible, while ensuring premium quality with its dot precision, sharp text & fine lines, as well as media flexibility. Another product unveiled at the event, the enhanced RIPS WorkForce Pro WF-C869R, is also made with Epson’s PrecisionCore technology while consistently producing quality prints with low running costs, allowing up to 86,000 pages in black or 84,000 pages in color prints. 

The introduction of these Epson Inkjet Multi-Function Printers is projected to contribute an increase in Epson Philippines’s market share which is currently at 51%. It is also another step in Epson’s continuing innovation to improve the customer experience and expand end-user benefits.
“Epson’s long-term goal is to introduce a brand new product category that can compete with the copier and high volume business printers. Epson’s Micro Piezo inkjet technology has proven its vast superiority over laser printing, as what we have already seen in the earlier L-series printers especially suited for SME’s. This time around, we have our most advanced PrecisionCore technology to create a much better alternative to conventional business printing. This development is aligned with Epson’s vision to create a new connected age of people, things and information with efficient, compact and precision technologies,” added Mr. Ed Bonoan, Senior General Manager and Marketing Head, Epson Philippines.
The WorkForce Pro WF-C869R is now available in all authorized Epson corporate resellers nationwide with a suggested retail price (SRP) of PHP152, 500.00 while the prices for the WorkForce Enterprise series, the WF-C20590 and WF-C17590 are still to be announced. The WorkForce Enterprise series will also be sold through authorized Epson corporate resellers nationwide within this year.

Cebu Pacific to provide airlift support to wounded soldiers, cops in Marawi CEB to provide free cargo for relief goods for Marawi

Cebu Pacific Air (CEB) will be providing airlift support to military and police personnel wounded in action (WIA) in Marawi City. On top of the free airlift on Cebu Pacific flights, the WIA government troops will also get baggage allowance of up to 40 kilograms.

In cooperation with the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the Philippine National Police (PNP), this initiative aims to augment air support by the Philippine Air Force by helping move wounded government troops from field hospitals in the area to larger medical facilities of the AFP and PNP. Through this, field medical stations can be declogged, giving way for wounded soldiers and police personnel who need immediate medical attention.

"It is with deep gratitude that we accept this kind gesture of support by Cebu Pacific led by its President and CEO, Mr Lance Gokongwei, in the airlift of our heroes Wounded in Action in Marawi. This will not just afford our troops immediate treatment in hospitals that offer better facilities to aid their speedy recovery, but a meaningful gesture to make your Soldiers, Airmen, Sailors, and Marines feel that their sacrifices are being recognized and appreciated," says Marine Colonel Edgard Arevalo, Chief of the AFP's Public Affairs Office.

“The officers and rank-and-file of the Philippine National Police and our families are grateful for this magnanimous expression of kindness and compassion by the management of Cebu Pacific to provide life-saving medical evacuation to policemen who are wounded in fighting local terrorists in Mindanao. This is not the first time that Cebu Pacific extended a helping hand to our troops. We cannot thank them enough for keeping the Filipino spirit of ‘Bayanihan’ alive in such crucial time of emergency,” says Police Chief Superintendent Dionardo Carlos, Chief of the PNP Public Information Office.

WIA government troops who are fit enough for commercial flights can be accommodated on Cebu Pacific flights from Cagayan de Oro (Laguindingan Airport), and flown to any CEB domestic destination. Currently, Cebu Pacific has direct flights from Cagayan de Oro to Bacolod; Tagbilaran, Bohol; Cebu; Davao; Iloilo and Manila. By July 26, CEB will also fly direct between Cagayan de Oro and Zamboanga City.

On top of the airlifting of WIA government troops, CEB is also airlifting cargo of relief goods and other humanitarian assistance for affected residents. Donors may coordinate with the GMA Kapuso Foundation or the Philippine Business for Social Progress for packing and transport arrangements of their donated goods.

Cebu Pacific will continue to provide free cargo support for relief goods and other essential items for displaced residents of Marawi City and adjacent areas from various organizations, most notably the Department of Social Welfare and Development. These include food and water; medicines; bandages; clothing and other necessities. The airline has provided equipment support to the Office of Civil Defense in the transport of humanitarian assistance.
