McDonald’s Philippines Partners with KidZania Manila

People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. -Maya Angelou

KidZania lives by this quote and believes that kids can do amazing things when they’re given the chance. In a 25-foot, 8,000 sqm fun-sized working city like KidZania, kids can do what adults are doing; it’s like an independent city controlled by kids, and kids have the right to invent, play and develop their skills instead of wasting their time watching TV or playing video games without any social interaction.


"Get ready for a better world” is KidZania’s slogan, which helps the kids to learn the value of work, money, teamwork and cooperation. Kids can explore the world of adults and take the experience from the city to their futures. It also has its own currency called the "KidZos" and kids earn them which can be used to pay for goods and services and also stored in a bank or use an ATM card. KidZania partners with real-life brands in the adult world to provide excitement and authenticity to the experience.  Even parents are more than thrilled to bring the kids there so they can indulge in their inner child.


While the parenting community in Manila is buzzing with excitement these days over this upcoming educational play city for kids that is set to open at the Bonifacio Global City in 2015, McDonald’s Philippines is happy to announce its partnership with KidZania Manila. KidZania is locally franchised by Play Innovations, Inc., a subsidiary of ABS-CBN Corporation.


In a McDonald's restaurant replica called McDonald’s Burger Shop, kids age 4 to 12 years old will learn the ingredients that go into every McDonald’s Cheeseburger and each step of the process in making it. The training that kids will undergo is the same standard procedure that ensures Quality, Service and Cleanliness delivered to every customer and each meal enjoyed in any McDonald’s around the world. It’s definitely a fun experience where kids develop their skills and teach them the values of responsibility, hard work and discipline.

This partnership strengthens McDonald’s commitment to children’s well being as it continuously paves ways to provide enjoyable and enriching experience for families, the McDonald’s way.


McDonald’s Philippines President and CEO Kenneth S. Yang shares, “We are definitely excited about this partnership as it strongly adheres to our commitment to Filipino families especially kids. We have existing programs that are especially designed for our youngest customers such as Kiddie Crew, a summer program wherein kids are trained like a McDonald’s crew and enjoy fun activities and creative workshops. We have Family Fun Days that we regularly hold in-store and the annual McHappy Day that encourages families to go out, play and enjoy a morning of fun run and various activities. Now that McDonald’s Burger Shop will open at Kidzania Manila, it is yet another innovative way to have a fun activity for kids which at the same time teach them essential life skills and values. We are looking forward to hear their good stories as they enjoy their experience at the Burger Shop.”

“Like KidZania, McDonald’s is a brand that loves and is loved by kids around the world,” said Maricel Pangilinan-Arenas, Governor of KidZania Manila and President and CEO of Play Innovations Inc. “We’re very excited to have them as an ally in giving children a truly realistic, immersive experience.  Our goal is to empower kids in a fun way, by letting them experience how a community works, how to make and manage money, and how to cooperate and work with other people—all of which are necessary for success in the adult world.”
