For people in General Santos City and the outlying areas who love Chinese Food, here is a piece of good news!
Chowking, the #1 Chinese Fastfood Restaurant chain in the country is set to open its second branch in General Santos City to augment its first one at the KCC Mall of GenSan!
The new Chowking which will be a stand-alone branch will be housed at the Yap property now being constructed beside the Land Bank Branch Building along the National Highway. It is right across the 24-hour Jollibee outlet of the Teng Family.
The restaurant is reportedly company-owned and it will just be leasing the area provided by the Yaps. There is no word yet on whether it will operated on a 24-hour basis just like its neighbor across the road but Bariles feels that it should.
Traffic along the National Highway is on a 24/7 roll and if the Jollibee outlet there was able to survive, then the owners of Chowking should not have any worries.
And besides, they should just take into consideration the proliferation of lugawan and arros caldohan eateries in these areas to realize that nocturnal businesses offering piping hot dishes could survive in these parts.
Bariles who took the photo of the construction above, observed that the building stands perpendicular to the National Highway, owing to the limited size of the property. This means that the only way for cars to get in is to enter from the right side of the highway, facing west. Problem is, this is right in the center of the junction where the traffic light signal system is situated.
This could prove to be a major bottleneck in the area.
However, Bariles still believes that there is nothing that could not be solved through dialogues between the Chowking owners and the local government who handles traffic matters. What should be first and foremost in the minds of both parties is to come up with a win-win solution redounding to the benefit of the people of GenSan, both investors and the buying public alike.
And all these are for the continued development of the Tuna Capital! (nosebleed)
ang subway mostly dto lng yn sa uae at middle east countries,,,it’snot impossible,,it is possible na posible mgkaroon din sa gensan soon,,,,included pope eyes chicken,southern fried chicken,sbarro pizza,and many international food chains,,,,nakkkksssss inshallah,hamdullilah…….magandang gensan????
[…] Although a spur-of-the-moment thing since the mayor couldn’t make it, Bariles made sure he’d be the first to take shots of this newest Chinese Fastfood restaurant in General Santos City, one of the establishments he has been most excited about since he blogged about it in an EARLIER POST. […]

Meron din akong nasagap na balita na may itatayong stand – alone JOLLIBEE Store sa J. Catolico Ave. sa harap mismo ng Mercury Drug at tabi ng SHELL Station! : )
Booming ang NATIONAL HIGHWAY ngayon ah!
Naka din! Ang Traffic nito lalong lalala especially walang parking space for customers and sa harap mismo ng traffic light system ang CHOWKING!
Pero Magagawan natin yan ng paraan for sure…
NOSEBLEED jud kuya! LOL.. Ako gi highblood na! Hahahaha…
Another big news for GENSAN! Another BIG post for SSC! LOL!
Good Job Kuya! Naka! head to head pag nagkataon ang JOLIBEE, CHOWKING and McDO nyan sa NAtional Highway! COngratulations GENSAN!
Karapat – dapat tong ICLAP! CLAP! BRAVO!
Wow galing naman neto. Sana nga 24/7 operations nila. I’m sure malakas ang sales nito kasi malapit sa mga hospitals and offices. Sana sa di katagalang panahon ay uumpisahan na rin ang napapabalitang McDonald’s restaurant sa katabi nitong lokasyon. Naku, nag uumpisa nang maging masaya ang tanawin sa bandang riyan. At mas lalo pang sasaya ito sa pagbubukas ng SM City Gensan sa di kalayu-an sa mga susunod pang mga taon. Mga bagay na mas lalo nating kinsasabikan masaksihan.
@general_rj: me Subway outlets yata sa Manila. Though not sure if they have outlets in provinces. 🙂
kuya pano pla magpost na picture dito?thanks po..
i tried Subway sa tampico,mexico..pero sa phil di pa aq nakakakta ng subway.anyway congratulations gensan hehe.my bagong chowking nnaman,uwi na aq ds octbr!wahh babanatan ko ang lauriat!miss ko na kaz, alang chwkng kz dito sa china.wahh!hehe..robnson shopping to the highest level!!
This is good. After they left their Pioneer cor. P. Acharon branch we will have another choice of famous branded fastfood on the go. Before, I’m not so much fond of their menus, but later I have appreciated their innovative and affordable yet delicious foods offered.
Starbucks, Costa, Seattle’s Best, T.G.I.F, Chilis, Subway, Cinnabon, etc.. soon to open in Gensan….
Wow! “healthy” na kaayo ta ni ani 🙂
I hope it’s 24/7. 🙂
@Brendel, that’s also my wish! Nothing like steaming hot bowl of Beef Wanton Noodles to comfort you after midnight. Then, wi-fi pa talaga sana! HEAVEN!!!!
