FORTY YEARS AGO, great times and great memories landed at the Visayas-Mindanao region with the opening of the first Shakey’s restaurant on December 10, 1978 in Mango Avenue, Cebu City.

Mr. Danny Tan and the rest of his Gryffinhouse Incorporated team gave southside a whole new meaning to their “dining experience” over a fun spread of pizza, chicken, and mojos which have become Cebuanos’ favorite through the years. In a span of four decades, the brand expanded in eight different locations in Cebu: Robinson’s Cybergate, SM City Cebu, Ayala Center Cebu, The Walk IT Park, Lightsite Parc AS Fortuna, F. Cabahug Street, SM Seaside City and soon to open in Mactan Mall Marina, Bohol and Davao.

This awesome milestone in the restaurant’s history will be celebrated through the Shakey’s Fast at 40: Fun Run on December 9, 2018 with its four race categories: 15K, 7K, 3K (Family Fun Run), and Kiddie Dash. The event is on its second run and it aims to commemorate the brand’s long-standing relationship with the Cebuanos at the same time renew connections and create new relationships with the younger generations.
