Call it a reinvention or a proverbial injunction but local Cebu-grown restaurant player recreates fast food dining in an entirely new venue and concept. By merging 3 locally grown brands (MyJoy, Butterbean, and Brasco) under one roof, Wanna Eat takes a bold step forward as the first 3-in-1, casual-quick service restaurant in Cebu and Wanna Eat is leading the way on Cebu’s take of quick service.
The Wanna Eat concept provides the dynamic Asiatown clientele with ample food brands that cater to their specific food need for the day. MyJoy serves the mainstream, value proposition, fastfood eaters who enjoy rice-based meals, fruity coolers and shakes, as well as quick snacks. Discerning pizza lovers who appreciate good quality, home-made thin crust pizza can order Brasco while brownie and cookie eaters who love sweet treats can choose from Butterbean’s widest local selection of over 50 delectably chewy brownies and cookies with coffee (100% Arabica beans) and (local) chocolate drinks to boot.
Wanna Eat gives customers an ensemble of the best products of each of its brand. The service crew hand-delivers to the table signature MyJoy dishes such as crunchy home-made tacos (also made available in bite size), the 13-part fruity halo-halo concoction and the ever-popular grilled pork belly that customers throughout the years have come to love. Brasco offers a very focused selection of pizzas with appealing twists on Brasco, Marinara and Dynamite products. A new Butterbean brownie product is launched every week to delight brownie aficionados. A selection of specialty dishes converge under the Wanna Eat Saver Meals, in order for customers to sample bestsellers at great value.
The 110- square meter store space, with a 70-80 persons seating capacity is peppered with dynamic seating options ranging from bleachers, colorful high stools and chocolate-inspired chairs to reflect its evolving customer preference. Wanna Eat dining layout has a vibrant, yet relaxed dining feel that pronounces its casual-quick service style.
Operating hours on Monday to Saturday from 11am-4pm was especially made to cater to the irregular work schedule of BPO employees. Sunday store hours is from 12nn-10pm to enable families and friends to enjoy their day off at Wanna Eat.
Simultaneously running 3 brands under one roof is no small feat in these challenging times. “It does appear harder than it sounds because you are managing all three brands but I’m getting the hang of it already,” says Ingrid Espina, Marketing Director. However, Wanna Eat management hopes to tap into its over 2-decade restaurant experience to focus on what keeps customers coming back : consistent food quality and exciting new products that continue to appeal to today’s consumers.
Wanna Eat is located at the E-Bloc Asiatown IT Park from Monday-Saturday 11am-4am and Sundays from 12nn-10pm. Reservation for special occasions is accepted even outside opening hours. WiFi is available.
