Ms. Earth Philippines 2017 Beauties Amaze Yoshinoya Glorietta Customers!

Hello po! Frens, I was so happy to be invited to cover the store visit of Miss Earth Philippines 2017 in Yoshinoya Glorietta 1, Makati!

Yoshinoya, as can clearly be seen in their signage is a Japanese Restaurant with more than a century of heritage! It's the largest chain of gyudon (beef bowl) restaurants with current headquarters in Kita, Tokyo. Oh, I love their tempura, green tea ice cream and sukiyaki!

Yoshinoya Motto: Tasty, low-priced and quick!
Yoshinoya Motto: Tasty, low-priced and quick!

The origin of the name Yoshinoya is believed to be derived from where the founder came from, the former town of Yoshino in Osaka. In Japanese, the kanji yoshi means old, no means field and ya means house.

The logo of Yoshinoya was invented by its founder, and it means Yoshinoya sells the best beef bowls! "Y" is a bull horn, also the brand's first letter. The rope of 27 rice grains actually represents the Yokozuna (winner) ranking in Japanese sumo-wrestling, symbolic of Yoshinoya's Yokozuna quality of food.

Here is Yoshinoya's historic timeline:

  • 1899- Yoshinoya is established in Japan by Eikichi Matsuda. They first opened at the Nihonbashi fish market in Tokyo.
  • 1926- Yoshinoya transferred to the new Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo after the devastating Great Kanto earthquake.
  • 1952- Yoshinoya's first open 24 hours store.
  • December 27, 1958- In an attempt for more profit, Yoshinoya's business model was changed from self-employed restaurant to a stock company.
  • 1965- Yoshinoya reached a million dollars in sales, leading to the idea of expanding the operations in Japan. 
  • 1968- Yoshinoya's first franchise opens in Shinsaibashi.
  • 1975- Yoshinoya's first American store opens in Colorado.
  • 2001- Yoshinoya International (formerly Yoshinoya D&C) entered into partnership, tying business agreement with Century Pacific Food, Inc. (formerly Century Pacific Group, Inc.), and the first Philippine store opened in Metro Point Mall, Pasay City.
  • 2002- launch of Yoshinoya Express Delivery (YED).

Yoshinoya's new Big Chicken comes at Php 145, with steamed rice and free red iced tea.
It is like a large fillet (or do they call it butterfly) of crispy chicken. I also like the gravy.

Finally, the girls arrived. This is the batch of Ms. Earth Philippines store visit to Yoshinoya Glorietta... They are among the 40 contestants for this year.

They paraded carrying a delicate Japanese paper umbrella, then they introduced themselves one by one. Afterwards, they entertained guests with their dance number. I really like the Ms. Earth song - I am woman of the Earth! Spreading love and, joy, fun and laughter... woman of the Earth!!!
