Jollibee launches its first mobile app using augmented reality

The country’s number one fast-food chain, Jollibee, recently unveiled its first-ever mobile application called JolliDance Showdown app that is sure to be a hit among Jollibee fans of all ages.

The big reveal hosted recently at Ascott Hotel in Bonifacio Global City made public the all-new mobile app that will make use of augmented reality (AR) with the help of the Jollibee Kids Meal box. It allows kids to try some interactive fun with the fast-food chain’s famous mascot, Jollibee.

The app was developed by renowned Los Angeles-based mobile innovation agency, Trigger. The agency has produced applications for other clients like Sony Pictures, Lionsgate Entertainment, and Lucas Film.

During the program, the Trigger team shared their experience in creating the app that captures the lovable persona of the dancing Jollibee. Trigger Senior Director of Client Services Natasha Weinstein shared their impression, “Everyone just really loves going to Jollibee. It struck us an important part of the Philippines’ pop culture.”

This quick immersion of the app’s designers determined the features and the overall appeal of the app. Trigger President and Executive Creative Director Jason Yim explains the app plays on the sense of community. “Getting friends involved and getting your own avatar involved, that’s definitely the most fun part. You can’t help but smile when you do it.”

Going live with Jollibee AR beats

Radio jock Chico Garcia and mom entrepreneur Bettina Carlos, along with her daughter Gummy, were the first to try these features. The experience began by watching the JolliDance Showdown app transform Jollibee’s friendly face on the Jolly Joy Box into a platform. These guests then captured photos for their screen avatars and, after choosing their image on screen, they watched Jollibee and friends enjoy Electro, Pop, and Rock beats.

Other features of the JolliDance Showdown App were also discussed, including unlocking new characters with every visit to Jollibee branches and scanning the Jolly Kiddie Meal promo board located at the store counters.

Yim said, “The app is pushing how we can engage kids with augmented reality. It’s more than just having characters appear. It’s interactive and gives a much deeper experience.”

The event shared the most recent effort of the leading fast-food brand to augment the langhap-sarap experience. Francis Flores, Jollibee Global brand chief marketing officer, says of its new partnership, “We are glad to work with Trigger to help enrich the Jollibee experience for children and for the young at heart with the launch of our JolliDance Showdown App. Being the first local fast-food to come up with an augmented reality game, we are very excited for our loyal customers who love Jollibee and Friends, as this gives them an opportunity to interact in a fun way using their mobile phones and tablets. Combining great-tasting food and augmented reality to level up their Jollibee experience — now that is really an exciting way to engage our customers.”

The JolliDance Showdown App is free for download in iTunes and Google Play Store. Get the app and watch the Jolly Joy Box go live. The Jolly Joy Box comes free with every purchase of the Jolly Kiddie Meal.

Pizza Hut sets new standard in online food delivery

Pizza Hut, the country’s food delivery expert, has launched a better, more user-friendly website that’s designed not only to change the way we order our pizza, but also to set a new standard when it comes to ordering food online for delivery or carry out.


“We have always been known as the pioneer and expert in food delivery in the Philippines, and this is borne out of our commitment to bring the freshest and hottest Pizza Hut pizza and signature dishes as fast as possible to our customers,” shares Pizza Hut Philippines marketing head Lorent Adrias. “But technology and our fast-paced lifestyles are changing the way diners now perceive convenience when it comes to ordering our food, and so we thought to introduce a better, more interactive website which takes ordering food online to a new level.”


Pizza Hut Philippines’ website,, now has an easy-to-use, minimalist interface that looks great and works well on desktops, laptops, mobile phones and tablets. Its arrangement of menu items by page, large images, brightly-colored selection buttons, and resizeable fields and fonts all make it easier to navigate on different screen sizes across devices. This makes ordering a breeze whether you’re in the comfort of your home, in the privacy of your office, or even while you’re stuck in traffic.


You can also now pay online when on the website. If you have no access to an ATM or bank, if you’re in a rush with no time to withdraw money, or if there’s simply no way to have cash on hand, just key in your credit card details to avail of a pizza, pasta, siding or Hut Feast.


By ordering online, you get access to exclusive Pizza Hut promos and deals, like the two-family pizza Hot Deal, the Big Variety Box full meals, or a free 1.5 liter of Pepsi to go with your favorite pizza. In fact, to celebrate the launch of the website, Pizza Hut rewards all new customers that sign up and log on for their first online orders with a free regular Hawaiian Supreme Pizza for a minimum spend of P500 for a limited time!


Pizza lovers in the city can now choose to enjoy meals at home, in the office, or anywhere in Metro Manila, because the website takes out the hassle of finding the Pizza Hut restaurant closest to a site user’s location. This also gives you the option to not only avail of “delivery,” but if you want to pass by the branch and pick up your order you can select “carry-out” instead of “delivery” on the site. You can set the exact time you want to get your favorites through the “Now” or “Later” button. The site even shows you the temperature of the day in real time, to help determine if there may be a delay to your delivery due to prevailing weather conditions!


Pizza Hut’s revamped website also makes ordering great by remembering the last orders made by customers, so there’s no need to repeat going through complicated steps just to re-order favorites on the next site visit. Customers only need to create new log-on details after placing their orders.


So don’t skip a meal or miss out on a chance to celebrate! Enjoy the best of food delivery now and order mouth-watering pizzas and other Pizza Hut items online, hassle-free at today!

The winning moves of James Reid

PAfter a big reveal that showcased a body reinvented by Century Tuna, stopped EDSA traffic, and sent fans on a social media frenzy, top actor James Reid appears anew in a TV commercial that gives a glimpse on how thinking like a champion has brought him to where he is now. 

There's no denying tha James Reid is one of the hottest young actors today. He's a social media phenomenon-with millions of followers online, not counting the various fan accounts that his devoted followers set up. The highly bankable love team JaDine, in which he is paired with his reel and real life partner Nadine Lustre, has sent their legions of fans in a frenzy, whether in mall tours, concerts, meet and greets, and even online where they are constant trending topics.

There are his chart-chopping albums including Reid alert which hit certified platinum level status last May. Then there are his box-office film successes---the 2014 romantic comedy and his launch movie Diary ng Panget; Tack Back and You're Dead, the teen romantic flick that followed a year later. No doubt, his biggest hit to date is On the wings Of Love, the top-rating primetime series with Nadine That kept viewers glued to their TV sets until it's sensational finale.

Clearly, James Reid is on a winning streak and his steady career path is one that is marked by succession on winning moves. Recently, he joined the ranks of Anne Curtis and Derel Ramsey as endorser of Century Tuna, the country's number one tuna.

Becoming part of the Century Tuna family has certainly paid off for the young hunk. He is presently at his fittest-sculpted abs, toned muscles, firm biceps-which can be attributed to a rigorous fitness regimen and a proper diet consisting of good protein that Century Tuna can provide. It's no surprise then that James headlines their latest campaign, where he appears in a series of sizzling television commercials: the first, a TV spot focusing on metamorphosis that sent his fans in a frenzy and created a sensation; the second, which is presently airing, revolves around the idea of commitment and loyalty.

Century Tuna couldn't be happier for having James in its roster of celebrity endorsers. From the very beginning, they already saw a champion in him. "His story is truly inspiring," said Greg Banzon, Century Tuna General Manager. "It speaks of transformation, the relentless desire to improve oneself. It's a winning formula that brings many positive lessons for everyone: perseverance, keeping the faith, while staying humble and true to yourself-qualities that makes James a true role model."

Meanwhile, for James, it's really all about trust. "I liken it to a championship game," he reveals. "If you want to win, you naturally want to surround yourself with a teammate you can put your total faith into. That to me is Century Tuna, and I can't think of any other name that I'd trust to keep my body fit."

With abated breath, we watch as James continues to transform-from a teen heartthrob to a more nature actor with the determination, the attitude and the body to conquer and win in the challenging world of show business. 

#BodyoftheCentury James Reid stars in the newest commercial of Century Tuna now airing on primetime TV.
