Mobile phones can now pay for pizza at Shakey’s
Pizza chain operator Shakey’s Philippines has teamed up with Globe Telecom and GCash to allow customers to order and pay for pizza, pasta, chicken, and other products of the restaurant using mobile phones.
At the same time, Globe Business, the information and communication technology arm of Globe Telecom, expanded Shakey’s Philippines' order and delivery operations through number #77777 which will allow over 60 million Globe customers nationwide to order toll-free via their mobile phones and landlines.
With the growing demand for delivery services, the mobile solution ensures greater reach and easier access for guests even those in hard-to-reach provincial areas. A growing number of the country’s top fast food chains have also partnered with Globe Business to avail of the #Hashtag service.
Shakey’s Philippines is also adopting GCash Scan to Pay service to pilot initially in 11 branches. The Scan-to-Pay feature provides a hassle-free payment system that comes with special promos and discounts for guests.
“Our partnership with Globe Telecom maximizes our opportunities to offer a full range of order and delivery services to our guests. Through Globe Business and GCash, both industry leaders for business solutions and e-finance services, Shakey’s Philippines is confident that this partnership will flourish to serve more guests with quality food and excellent delivery service,” said Shakey’s Pizza Asia Venture Inc. president and CEO Vicente Gregorio.
Globe Telecom president and CEO Ernest Cu said the collaboration will primarily benefit the customers of Globe, GCash and Shakey’s.

Globe continuously strives to improve and create solutions that bridge business gaps and provide companies with the technology that will allow them to empower and connect their customers,” Cu said.
