Clash of Bakeries

When it comes to quality cakes, there are only two kinds of bakeshops in the Philippines that can provide that, and those are the Red Ribbon Bakeshop and Goldilocks Bakery.

The Red Ribbon Bakeshop and Goldilocks Bakery are the most popular choice of Filipinos when it comes to bakeshops in the Philippines, but have you ever heard of their history? On how did it first start or what are its current status? Well here is a short introduction of the Red Ribbon Bakeshop and the Goldilocks Bakery.

Red Ribbon Bakeshop is a popular fast-food chain and bakery in the Philippines and the United States, offering a wide range of cakes and pastries. The chain first served us with their delectable cakes in 1979 in Quezon City along Timog Avenue and started franchising in 1999.

In 1984, the Red Ribbon Bakeshop first served its cakes in its US branch in West Covina, California.

There are more than 80 branches of Red Ribbon Bakeshop serving their unique cakes all over the Philippines, and there are also 15 Red Ribbon Bakeshop branches across California and are still planning on expanding more.

On 2005, the Red Ribbon Bakeshop was acquired by one of the most popular fast food chain here in the Philippines, the Jollibee Food Corporation.

The Goldilocks Bakery is a Philippine-based chain of bakeries that specializes in providing Filipino cakes and pastry. The Goldilocks Bakery was first a family business that started on 1966 in a one-door apartment of a two-story structure on Pasong Tamo Street, Makati City.

But later on, the Goldilocks Bakery grew and now boasts its 192 branches in the Philippines alone. It has branches not only throughout the Philippines, but also in the United States that are currently confined to California and a single location in Las Vegas, Nevada and there is also one outlet in Vancouver, Canada, where they cater for the Filipino expatriate communities there.

The Goldilocks Bakery specializes in cakes and pastries, but some branches have incorporated a Foodshop, offering Filipino cuisine, including beef, chicken, pork, seafood and vegetable dishes as well as their Thirst Quenchers, such as halo-halo, gulaman, fruit salad and sago.

Though Red Ribbon Bakeshop and the Goldilocks Bakery are rivals when it comes to serving the best kind of cakes, Filipinos all over the world still recognize the two as the most popular bakeries in the world.
