French Baker's 25th Anniversary + Visit Paris in Summer 2015 Raffle Promo

Bonjour, les amis! Who fancies a trip to Paris? Are you dreaming to visit the city of light? Oui, oui! (Translation: Yes! Yes!)

If yes, then you’re in luck because French Baker has a merveilleux surprise that will have you living la vie en rose as they celebrate 25 successful years of French Baking in the Philippines.

I attended the launch of “Visit Paris in Summer 2015” today, a raffle promo by French Baker together with Insight Vacations, Rajah Travel Corporation and Etihad Airways, where one lucky winner will get the chance to visit and experience Paris, France next year. As the company’s way of saying ‘thank you’ to the customers who have embraced and supported the patisserie over the years, this much-anticipated promo marks French Baker’s 25 years of bringing European-style breads in the mass market.

“It was in 1985 when I travelled to Europe for the first time that I fell in love with PARIS and her baked goodies. Since then I’ve dreamt of doing the same so that I can impart a similar experience to our kababayans in the Philippines,” shared Johnlu G. Koa, professor turned entrepreneur, and now Founder and CEO of The French Baker.

“It is for this same reason that we wanted to give back to our loyal customers the same French experience not just through our products, but by giving one lucky winner a chance to see and feel for themselves the beauty and charm of Paris.”

How to Join:
Every P500 worth of dine-in and take-out single receipt from any The French Baker branch entitles the customer one raffle coupon.  The promo will run from November 5, 2014 until March 15, 2015. Grand Draw will be on March 20, 2015.

“Visit Paris in Summer 2015” Prizes:
  • 25 The French Baker gift certificates worth P5,000.00 each are also up for grabs. 

The grand prize winner will get to spend at least
  • three days in each of France’ key cities, including Paris, the old Roman City of Nimes; and finally in Monte Carlo.  
  •  gives one lucky winner and three of his companions an all-expense paid 10-day trip to Paris through luxury escorted tours provider Insight Vacations, together with Rajah Travel Corporation, and Etihad Airways as the official airline. How does it sound? 

 “People may ask why four tickets for one winner, and not four winners with one ticket each?” Koa furthers. “The reason is that we wanted the winner to see the charms of France and experience that magical feeling together with family and friends, and not just by themselves.”

Apart from the raffle promo, The French Baker also featured a spectacle of fashion, art, music, entertainment and food in the form of tableaus at the Fashion Hall of SM Megamall:

The Art tableau, which are decorated with paintings from France; the Fashion Tableau, with models dressed in Parisian Chic;

the Wine and Cheese tableau, which offered exquisite cheeses from different parts of Europe;

and the Food tableau, which provided a delectable choice of entrees. Délicieux!

Gary V. also performed a few songs for The French Baker's 25th Anniversary! He is perfection!

Opening its first branch at the SM City North Edsa in 1989, The French Baker began as a startup selling French-inspired breads and pastries such as baguettes, croissants, sourdough and tarts alongside local favorites like pan de sal and ensaymada, until it expanded into a casual dine-in that also offers soups, salads, pasta and pizza.

Today, The French Baker has 52 branches all over the country, and has expanded to include The French Baker “Salon de The” edition.

“This is a noteworthy milestone not only for me but for all of us. I thank you all for the support, especially those who have been patronizing our products since we opened 25 years ago. We have achieved so much, and I hope you keep on supporting us so we can do more in the future,” Koa said.

If you're looking for a great place to eat with the whole fambam, drop by the nearest French Baker store.  Everyone who will visit for breakfast, lunch or dinner will be in with a chance of winning. So, what are you waiting for? Don't miss out on the chance to WIN a trip to Paris!

Bon Appétit!
