Studies have shown the great impact of COVID-19 on comfort food consumption in the Philippines. As we all deal with the pandemic in our own way, sometimes, all we want is the taste of something familiar, or something that reminds us of better times.
This phenomenon has led us all to continually search for better-than-fast-food offerings with homegrown and trusted dine-in restaurants responding by offering better and tastier alternatives for takeaway or for delivery.
Take the case of Racks, the homegrown American comfort food and leading ribs restaurant chain in the Philippines. Racks has once again innovated product offerings and have used their famous pork ribs and US steak meats to launch three “real deal” sandwich-offerings, crafted by artisans especially for those who crave for juicy and tender meats marked with the signature freshly grilled flavor in their burgers in time for World Cheeseburger Day.
“These burger and sandwich offerings mark a significant milestone in Racks’ many years of offering interesting and well-loved American food favorites to Filipino foodies. We took heed of how much burgers have evolved to become one of the friendlier takeaway and delivery items in the country and saw fit to offer our brand of burgers, and our take on these favorites to our customers,” said Eric Fontillas, Racks Marketing Manager.
