For over 42 years, 3M Pizza Pie has made millions of Filipino pizza lovers happy with its crispy thin crust; unique, sweet, home-style sauce; and a distinct mix of toppings that make up the original 3M Pizza Pie taste.
The first commercialized Filipino pizza that pioneered pizza kiosks in the country, 3M Pizza Pie is a well-loved tradition and an unforgettable pizza brand for many as it was part of their youth and family tradition. We all practically grew up or grew old with it.
3M Pizza Pie was founded by Merle B. Hemedes after coming back from the U.S. in 1969. A regular pizza lover in New York, she thought of reinventing her pizzas by making a unique sauce that caters to the sweet, Filipino taste and using a thin crispy crust topped with ham and cheddar cheese. This made the pizza more affordable to the Filipino masses. To make her pizzas more accessible, she put up a small kiosk outside their toy shop business at Araneta Arcade in Quezon City. It became an instant hit since it was the first time Filipinos tasted pizza.
Soon after, her other sisters Minerva B. Miller, Milagros B. Villar, and later Leandra P. Pascual joined the company. In 1996, the company was reincorporated under the name Supremo’s Food Corporation. In 2006, 37 years after the four sisters established the business, the torch has been passed on to four young and dynamic entrepreneurs last September 17, 2006.
Under a new management, 3M Pizza Pie returns to the market in 2006 with aggressive plans to re-establish itself as the leading quick-serve pizza, pasta and snacks chain in the country by reinventing the brand and upgrading its image and to finally offer franchising operations.
To meet this eventual growth, the company worked on optimizing and restructuring the business systems particularly the commissary operations to further improve its services to the partner-dealerships. The company has also successfully established an R&D team composed of culinary chefs and market analysts to help develop new products and unique pinoy-pizza product lines as well as new services such as a new pizza delivery system. Continued generation of new marketing collateral and an aggressive multimedia marketing campaign are already in place to complement our new line of products and expanding menu and to promote brand recognition and nationwide growth.
3M Pizza Pie currently runs over 40 company-owned outlets and franchises nationwide from Aparri, to as far as Cagayan, and Virac, Catanduanes. The franchise operations was formally launched in the 2007 Philippine International Franchise Expo, and since then, the company has already opened more than 40 franchised outlets throughout Metro Manila and Luzon. Former dealerships have also undergone conversion to formal franchises after realizing the benefits of the strong franchise system.
With a name that is strong as ever, a re-engineered brand logo and store look, better and more exciting pizza and pasta and rice meal offerings, and more calculated marketing, 3M Pizza Pie is now soaring new heights to establish itself to be number one in the quick-serve pizza industry.
