Who would resist a sumptuous viand of puto paired with dunuguan on a merienda; pork barbecue and kare-kare with laing during lunch, and a serving of cathedral window for dessert. These are just a few of pinoy's favorites from goldilocks aside from their array of all-time favorite cakes. This year is goldilocks' celebration of it's 45 goldilicious years.
A brief history: Goldilocks traces its roots to the collaboration and complementary talents of the women, whose collective love for good food fueled what has been transformed into the global enterprise today. In 1966, two sisters Milagros and Clarita, and their sister-in-law, Doris, decided to open a small bakeshop along to the Pasong Tamo Street, Makati. The sisters have already been dabbling in the business for some time -- Milagros, by supplying chiffon slices to a number of Manila’s canteens, and Clarita, by baking and decorating cakes during special occasions in Bicol -- when they decided to take their hobby one step further. A third sister, Maria Flor, suggested that they name the enterprise “Goldilocks“, after the character in a fairy tale, aiming to make it easier for children and their mothers to remember its name; and because it suggested luck and prosperity. Over the years, Goldilocks did prosper, but not due to mere luck. The sisters’ dedication, hard work and business sensibilities led to a second branch just two years after the pioneering outlet began operating. Read here.
