E-bikes For Food Delivery To Further Reduce Carbon Footprint

Quick-Service Restaurant KFC has moved to further reduce the company’s carbon footprint with the rollout of its pioneering e-bike (electric bike) fleet for food delivery in Metro Manila and nearby provinces. Several units of the eco-friendly e-bikes have been deployed last year, with 72 more set to be dispatched to service KFC stores in Metro Manila and its peripheries. “This is a trailblazing initiative for KFC and reflects our continuing pursuit for more ways to contribute to the global efforts to reduce carbon emissions and address climate change,” KFC Philippines Chief Operations Officer Jojo Marcelo shared. Electric vehicles have three times less carbon footprint than conventional vehicles in their entire lifecycle, or from production to distribution, use, and disposal, studies have shown. They do not produce direct emissions, thus, helping improve air quality in urban settings. KFC’s e-bikes, supplied by one of the world’s top makers of electric vehicles, also do not contribute to noise pollution like the ordinary motorcycles being used in food delivery today. “The e-bike fleet is part of KFC’s response to the clamor for the private sector to escalate the green movement, which gives primary consideration to the environment in all aspects of the business, from production to consumption. It is also our way of addressing the growing need for sustainable food delivery service in this New Normal when mobility is restricted and people are staying indoors even while working or studying,” Marcelo added. KFC’s e-bikes are also lighter and easier to navigate than conventional motorcycles, without compromising efficiency and on-time delivery of “finger lickin’ good chicken and gravy, well-loved fixins, tasty new pasta, and rice bowl creations”. KFC now prides itself as the first quick-service restaurant in the country to utilize e-bikes for eco-friendly delivery, which can be accessed via its website, the KFC Philippines mobile app, and delivery service number 02-888-7-8888. It currently has over 300 branches nationwide. KFC also recently opened the business for sub-franchising, allowing entrepreneurs throughout the country to join the fast-growing QSR chain......»»

Kevin Quiambao can t wait to face off with Ange Kouame

Kevin Quiambao will be the newest Taft tower. The once pillar for Nazareth School of National University's back-to-back championships will be seeing action for De La Salle University in UAAP Season 83, at the earliest. Whenever that time comes, Quiambao is nothing but determined to continue rising. At the same time, the 6-foot-8 youngster is nothing but determined to stand strong alongside the best of the best bigs in college. Among all of them, who is he looking forward to facing off with the most? Asked just that in The Prospects Pod, Quiambao answered, "Para sa akin, si Koaume." The 19-year-old is referring to Ateneo de Manila University's Ivorian tower Ange Kouame who has three more years of eligibility. And so, without a doubt, the two would have at least two years of going at it as archrivals. "Paang mate-test ko yung sarili ko kung hanggang saan niya ako," he said. "Ngayon pa lang, ii-scoutin ko na talaga siya para next year, alam ko na yung mga gagawin niya." However, Carl Tamayo, for his part, has one name and one name only on his mind as his must-see matchup. "Ako, isa lang. Si Kevin," he said, with a laugh. Tamayo and Quiambao were National U's twin towers in its dynastic run in the last two years. Now, though, they have gone their separate ways with Tamayo in the University of the Philippines and Quiambao in La Salle. But it's not just Tamayo who cannot wait to test his mettle against Quiambao. "Ako, isa na rin si Kevin," Gerry Abadiano said. "Siyempre, gusto ko rin siya ma-experience makalaban." Of course, Abadiano, a point guard, will only get to guard Quiambao on switches. Still, that will also be the first time the two of them will be on opposite sides. When it comes to fellow guards, Abadiano said he is also eager to duke it out with former teammates in Jojo Antiporda in University of the East and Paul Manalang in University of Sto. Tomas. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
