Gracing the special media event was no less than Johnny Andrean, founder of J.CO Donuts and Coffee, who flew in from Jakarta to witness firsthand the growing appreciation J.CO has been getting from countless Filipino donut lovers. In addition, he was also very glad to be part of the festivities to celebrate the 7th and largest J.CO branch in the Philippines.

The brains behind the success of J.CO Donuts: Mr. Carlos Chan,
Mr. Johnny Andrean, Mr. Edgar Sia, and Mr. Oszen Chan
Also on hand to welcome the guests were Mr. Oszen Chan - President, CFI; Mr. Carlos Chan - Chairman, CFI; Mr. Edgar Sia - Vice Chairman, CFI; Mr. Kevin Tan - First Vice President and Division Head, Megaworld Commercial Division, Megaworld;. Trina Lim, VP for Operations – J.CO CFI Philippines, Alvene Ngo and Lesley Chan, Marketing Assistants – J.CO CFI Philippines.

To make the store opening more eventful, J.CO treated the guests from the media to a hands-on way of making J.CO’s bestselling donuts - Green Tease, Oreology and Al Capone.  In a friendly competition, each guest was tasked to pick a donut of his or her choice then pair it with a beverage to come up with the best “Pair Me Up” donut and coffee combination.

The famous (and my favorite) Al Capone donut!
J.CO’s tremendous success traces its roots in Jakarta, Indonesia where Andrean opened a cozy donut shop in 2005. The enterprising gentleman took inspiration from the popularity of donuts and coffee in the US and decided to bring the concept to Asia.

Guests were also taught to make signature
J.CO beverages
To make it more appealing to the Asian market, J.CO only serves freshly made delectable donuts and an array of stimulating coffee prepared by trained baristas. Add to these exclusive offerings is the relaxing ambience J.CO affords its customers, making it an ideal hangout place for small meetings and intimate get-togethers.

Here in the Philippines, J.CO donuts can be savored in SM Megamall, SM Mall of Asia, Greenbelt 2, Alabang Town Center, SM Fairview and Trinoma mall.

With the opening of its newest store that is ready to serve donut lovers round the clock, J.CO is indeed set to redefine the Philippine café scene.
