MANILA, PHILIPPINES — Last Friday, June 17, ride-sharing superapp Grab kicked off its 10th year through a once-in-a-lifetime spectacle, unveiling its “Grab Biga10 Wheel,” which highlights 10 stories of growth and success from its partner and merchant communities.
“Nagsimula ako Grab dahil sa pinansyal na pangangailangan, at doon ay natutulungan ko ang aking pag-aaral at natutuloy-tuloy ko hanggang ngayon. Sa dami-dami naming Grab partner, Grab rider — libo libo— at isa ako dun sa napili bilang Biga10 sa 10th anniversary ni Grab. Sobrang saya at overwhelming para rin sa aking pamilya,” said Grab delivery-partner Jester Ocampo Castro.
“One of the things that I like about Grab is that merchants — big or small — have the opportunity to expand and grow. Thanks to Grab, we have seen InstaMart grow from a home-based business to a fully-fledged online grocery store. This shows that even a small business like ours can grow and make a big impact in the community,” said Grab Merchant Partner Marvin Cabreza.
Grab is also bringing the festivities closer to many Filipinos through its Biga10 Food District in SM Mall of Asia Music Hall — where everyone can enjoy regional food delights from June 17 to 19, and On The Spot Biga10 Tour, bringing the Food District to more cities!
Biga10 support and celebration for Grab’s merchants and partners
Continuing its Biga10 support for local businesses, Grab Philippines will hold its annual GrabNEXT 2022 Conference this June 22 where local businesses and MSMEs looking to take their brand to the next level can get valuable insights from industry experts such as celebrity chef Jeremy Favia, Let’s Eat Pare founder Mark Vincent del Rosario, and MagBadyetTayo co-anchor Tintin Babao. Additionally, merchant-partners will also learn how to better scale their businesses through Grab’s suite of tools, solutions, and services.
The Biga10 celebration is not complete without recognizing Grab’s vast community of driver and delivery partners, all of whom have been key to Grab’s journey in the last decade. On June 20, Grab will be having its Ka-Grab Anniversary Concert — a fun-filled celebration featuring performances from music icons Aegis and Morissette and more.
“As we mark another milestone for Grab in the Philippines, we are immensely grateful to our kababayans who continue to believe in our mission and motivate us to be better at what we do best. Every Filipino has played a huge role in shaping Grab into what it is today, and we will continue outserving our kababayans the best way we know-how — through our technology, platform, expertise, and our Filipino values. We have achieved great things in the past 10 years, and I believe that greater things can be accomplished if we all work together for the common good,” said Grab Philippines Country Head Grace Vera Cruz.
As Grab celebrates its 10th anniversary, it remains fully committed to bringing even more access to convenient and reliable services that uplift Filipinos’ lives.
