How Shakeys made my day!
After successfully organizing a bloggers tour in Baguio sponsored by Azalea Residences, I finally found time to catch up on some well deserved sleep. I couldn’t believe it when I realized I slept more than 12 hours!
Anyway, I woke up ravenously hungry, and the first thing that came to my mind was PIZZA. Greasy, cheese-laden, scrumptious thin-crust pizza. Being a night owl, I’ve noticed that a lot of Shakey’s stores are open 24 hours, which is why though it was just 7 am, I decided to call the Shakey’s hotline and order me one large Managers Choice Pizza.
I hadn’t yet completely shaken off the cobwebs from my head when there was a knock on the door. No, it wasn’t the Electrolux man (admit it, you know what I mean!) It was the delivery guy handing over my hot-from-the-oven pizza!
I can’t describe to you how the smell wafting out of that cardboard box just kick-started those endorphins as if I had been jogging for an hour. I mean, I was so happy! The pizza guy grinned when my stomach growled loudly just as I was signing the delivery confirmation slip. Any other time I would’ve been mortified, but nothing could knock my pins down at that point. I grinned back and gave him a big tip.
For those of you that grew up with Shakey’s, you may not know that it first came to the Philippines in 1975, and it was more a pub than a family place back then. It was brought over by San Miguel, so of course they served beer. It evolved over the years, becoming more family-oriented, although you can still order a beer if you want, and nothing goes better with their famous thin-crust pizza than a cold beer.
I didn’t order beer with my pizza, and I’m not sure they’ll deliver it, either. You can ask through their delivery hotline 77-777 (super easy to remember). You can also order on line from their website at http://www.shakeyspizza.ph/order.asp?mode=delivery or from your phone app. You can download it for your iOS device from the iTunes Store or Android device from Google Play.
Whichever way you order, you can be sure that you’ll get it super fast, because they have a guaranteed 45 minutes delivery time. “If It’s Late, It’s Free!”
Another great thing about Shakey’s is their Pizzanatic SuperCard. It is a loyalty-cum-rewards card where you can earn points, get a free pizza for every one for delivery, get 10% discount for dine-in and take-out, AND get a birthday treat. You can avail of a SuperCard at any Shakey’s outlet, or get one for when you call their delivery hotline, and you can use it immediately.
You pay just PhP399, which you get back immediately when you get your free pizzas (for delivery only)!
Shakey’s is a real lifesaver when you are feeling too bushed (or lazy) to cook a meal. Aside from their thin or thick crust pizza, they have a whole menu of goodies. This includes fried chicken, pasta, starters, and sides, particulalrly their famous Mojos. They also offer budget-busting combos for family meals or parties. It is really too ridiculously easy to love Shakey’s.
Now I’m craving for Mojos…
