Six years ago, Boy Kanin was created as a food cart concept which was made to cater to the needs of the hardworking Filipinos employees for them to have an access to clean, delicious and affordable meals that will remind them of “homecooked meals.”
Six years ago we started on a journey. A journey and a dream of building a great company and a simple idea of making a positive, lasting impact on people.
Over this six-year journey, we’ve been up, and we’ve been down. We’ve won, and lost. We’ve laughed, cried, worried, celebrated, pondered, and partied. But through it all, we’ve continued to focus on building something that we can stand behind and that we’re proud to be a part of.
Today, we celebrate those who have been with us in the past and helped us get to where we are. And it’s a lot of fun looking back, feeling the wins, and remembering the struggles. We’re more than happy to have opened new branches across the Philippine islands– from Luzon we were happy to have made it to the Visayan shores. It is our dream to bring the “Sarap ng Kaning Pinoy” to every Filipinos out there.
There will be more wins, and more struggles. There will be more things we get right, and things we get wrong. And we’ll continue to journey up this mountain. Because it’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey. It’s about the climb. Ernest Hemingway said, “It is good to have an end to journey towards; but it is the journey itself that matters in the end.”
It’s about what you give. It’s about the bridges you build. It’s about what you learn along the way – about business, about your teammates, and most importantly, about yourself.
And hopefully every katropa will help to carry this company to the next level. Each person that has worked here, or invested, or rooted for us is counting on you to build smarter, to serve the customer better, and to create something we’re all proud of. They are counting on you to evolve – to change – to make things better than how you found them.
We are honored and humbled to be sharing our 6th year anniversary with you. Because when all is said and done, we believe that life is about having incredible experiences with incredible people. And there’s nothing more incredible than to be working with an incredible team and taking a shot at creating something great from the blackness of nothing.
We at Boy Kanin sincerely appreciate your work, your smartness, and your dedication. Always remember that you are important. Every line of code, every call, every consumer and katropa, every project goes to creating a better tomorrow – for you, our customers, and our community.
Indeed, Boy Kanin has gone a long way. And whether you’ve been here, six years, six months, or six days, this is now YOUR story. YOUR company. YOUR journey. Maraming, maraming salamat katropa! The best kayo!
