MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The ongoing Congressional hearings on the broadcast franchise for ABS-CBN may all be moot and academic, as the Lopez-owned conglomerate announced it has been granted not one, but several franchises.
A spokesperson for ABS-CBN Holdings told The Adobo Chronicles that the new franchises include operations in several cities in the Philippines and in the United States.
The new franchises were signed today in Manila between officers of ABS-CBN and ChowKing.
The spokesperson said ABS-CBN is really excited about its new fastfood venture. It will continue to use its popular meme of “In the (food) service of the Filipino.”
