Turks: One of the Country’s Fastest Growing Food Franchise

You’ve probably already had a bite of this famous snack, or at the very least, seen one of its famous ads featuring one of the country’s leading heartthrobs – Piolo Pascual. If you guessed it right, then yes, we are talking about Turks Shawarma – the famous Middle Eastern food company that managed to conquer the palates of the Filipino people.

With humble beginnings that dated way back in 2007, Turks Shawarma started with a mere, single food cart. Fast forward to today, it is one of the most popular and leading shawarma brands in the Philippines. With its iconic advertisements starring Piolo Pascual that started around 2017, most experts agree that this bold move from a small company back then like Turks was a bold move. Eventually, it paid off, as its current success seems to be worthy of the estimated 6-digit figure as an endorsement fee for the beloved actor.

The concept of grilling meat by turning it around in a rotisserie is claimed (by some) to have been invented in Turkey, where it’s called Doner Kebab. When this awesome delicacy begun spreading to the Middle East, it got the name Shawarma, from the Arabic word “turning”. This led to Turks to drop the word ‘shawarma’ off their menu, settling with ‘doner’, which is the actual Turkish name instead.
