Society Pass Incorporated (SoPa), Southeast Asia’s leading data-driven loyalty platform, recently announced the ownership of Mangan.ph (Mangan), the Philippine leader of local restaurant service founded in 2017.
“We enthusiastically welcome Mangan into SoPa’s growing loyalty and data ecosystem. We combine the robust technology and operational efficiency of Mangan with our own brand building expertise. Combined with Pushkart, which delivers grocery food to consumers in Metro Manila, and Mangan’s operating focus in the provinces, SoPa is creating a food delivery behemoth to serve the 115 million people of Philippines,” said Society Pass Philippines Country Manager Arbie Pagdangan.
With over 1,200 partner restaurants and a 200-rider network, Mangan delivers first-rate cuisine to more than 500,000 registered users. It’s now famous for its excellent service with a backing of 80,000 social media followers.
Operating in Pampanga, the culinary capital of Philippines, Mangan’s service covers to 16 other cities including Angeles City, San Fernando, Clark, Dau, Mabalacat, Guagua, Lubao, Tarlac, Bataan, Magalang, Pasig, Cabanatuan, Baguio, Lipa Batangas, Antipolo City, Dagupan City. The newly acquired business will be integrated into SoPa’s F&B vertical, Push Delivery Pte Ltd, along with Pushkart and #HOTTAB.
“When we started Mangan five years ago, our vision was to deliver delicious dishes from Pampanga’s wide array of cafes and restaurants right to our customer’s doorsteps in a hassle-free way. We have witnessed tremendous success in our initial goals, and now, aim to expand Mangan beyond Luzon Island to other regions in the Philippines. This is why joining forces with SoPa is our logical next step, and we are excited about the combined capabilities we will now bring to Mangan’s partners and customers,” shared Ralph Rile, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Mangan.
