Yap thanked Chicken Deli, that he says he used to eat when he was still a child in Negros, for selecting him as endorser.
“Dati nung bata ako, nasa probinsya ako, kinakainan ko yung Chicken Deli. Ngayon ako na yung endorser nila. Sobrang nakaka-overwhelm. I never expected na yung kinakainan ko sa probinsya before, ngayon ako ang endorser.”
According to Yap, he makes it a point to eat Chicken Deli whenever he visits his home province. He said that he also orders Chicken Deli while in Manila. He added that Chicken Deli also enabled him to join the PBA.
“Kaya siguro ako nakasali sa PBA, dahil sa kinakain ko ay Chicken Deli.”
The Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) cited Chicken Deli, the official flame grilled chicken of the play-for-pay league.
“The PBA has always strived for excellence in the game. Because of this goal, we are associated with some of the best players in the country. We also attract like-minded individuals and organizations that seek the same results.
We discovered that Chicken Deli is one company that has consistently worked hard to attain its goals in quiet, unassuming ways that deliver. And of course, we really love that inasal!” Rhose Montreal, Business Development Director of PBA, said.
Chicken Deli was inspired by the family matriarch Mamang Lourdes, whose recipes served as the blueprint for the kitchen’s masterpieces.
“Deli” was derived from the word “delicious” and as a tribute to daughter, Delia, who conceived the idea of the restaurant.
It has five stores in Bacolod and now has five company owned outlets inside and outside Metro Manila. It also has nine franchises in the metropolis.
