Ever since eight-time World Boxing Champion Manny Pacquiao started his string of major wins in the field of professional boxing, he has already poured in a lot of money in major business investments in his original hometown, General Santos City.
First was a convenience store in his old barangay, Labangal. This was followed by a bigger convenience store along Santiago Boulevard which has already closed shop.
Next were two buildings, christened JMP Building 1 (JMP meaning Jinkee-Manny Pacquiao) at the corner of Osmena South-Champaca and JMP Building 2 at corner of Aparente Avenue and Provido Village.
He has also bought houses for his mother Dionisia, his siblings and a bigger mansion along Salvani Street (Block 8) at Barangay City Heights. Then there’s the JMP Gymnasiumat Barangay Tambler where he holds his cockfight tournaments and where his mother celebrated her birthday party earlier this year.
He has also purchased large parcels of land in Yumang Street (for his radio station) and along the Bula-Lagao Road behind KCC Mall of GenSan (for a large hotel), among other areas within GenSan.
He and wife Jinky has also invested in Team Pacquiao, a novelty store selling all his souvenir items and apparell; Jinkee’s Fashion World; Flawless Skin Clinic plus dining and entertainment joints like JMix Resto Bar, Pacman SportsBar, and Blu Gre Coffee Shop; a water refilling station named Pacman and many more.
Right now, Manny and Jinkee are focusing their time and resources in the impending opening of their first foray into the hotel business. Soon to open is a much bigger mixed-use office-restaurant-and-hotel edifice (which we blogged in June this year) located a stone’s throw away from JMP Building 2 along Aparente Avenue. Situated right at the corner of Aparente Avenue and Block 1 Dadiangas Heights Subdivision, is Pacquiao’s very own ROADHAUS ECONOMY HOTEL.
This Pacquiao hotel is actually located at the back of the building. The facade will be made available for commercial establishments and offices.
The hotel lobby and office will be along the Block 0 Street, beside the car entrance. See above photo.
The 2nd floor of the hotel lobby will reportedly house the new office of Manny and Jinkee’s various ventures, all under the umbrella of the Pacquiao Group of Companies.
The two-storey Pacquiao hotel which has two wings, will have 40 airconditioned rooms, all equipped with LCD TV with cable, hot & cold showers, Wi-Fi, plus other modern amenities.
The courtyard shown above can actually be used to park the vehicles of the hotel guests.
Just recently, Manny Pacquiao’s staff submitted a letter to the Office of the City Mayor of General Santos asking permission to cement the portion of the Block 0 which runs parallel to their hotel.
This hotel which is set to open during the first quarter of 2012, is one really good investment of the Pacquiao couple considering that General Santos City is still in dire need of more hotel rooms to be able to fill up the growing number of conventions and conferences being conducted in the city. And with the numerous guests that the Sarangani Congressman receives regularly, and whom he billets in the city’s various hotel establishments, he might just as well construct his own and save money.
This is basically the reason why the Roadhaus Economy Hotel is just right for that purpose.
I really just missed my hometown which certainly does not look like Dadiangas anymore…

Very good investments by Manny & Jinkee. It will truly be a sure hit given its style, design, prestige (manny’s name attach) and high quality materials been used in order to make these economy hotel a world class of its own. Hope the rooms are quite affordable especially to local guests. Hehe
It is good to see Manny pours his wealth and business ventures in GenSan. I heard that they also negotiated to buy a property in business district Manila purposely for highrise residential block.

Manny Pacquaio could invest anywhere in the World, be thankful that he is investing in Gensan. His investment will show others that Gensan is a good investment. This can only help the people of Gensan. Manny worked hard for his wins, now he is putting some back into the community. Good on you Manny and Jinkee.
Wonderful gift to the Generals in terms of economy, employment and tourist attraction. God bless you more, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and pray for your good health to serve the people Castanares family of Buayan, General Santos City.
