Red Ribbon Bakeshop, the Philippines-founded bakery offering an array of sweet and savory baked goods, debuted its first-ever drive-thru service in the US as part of its new store opening in Houston, Texas this past weekend, with lanes officially opened on Saturday, March 5.
The new store on Westheimer Road not only marks the brand’s first US location to offer drive-thru service, but it also represents its second location in Houston and 36th in the US. In addition to drive-thru service, the store will feature café-style seating for those who want to enjoy their bakery treats right on the spot. Customers can also order either take-out or delivery through the Red Ribbon ordering app (available at the App Store and Google Play), the Red Ribbon website and DoorDash.
“We’re so excited to make our delicious baked goods more accessible to the Westheimer community through the opening of our first-ever drive-through amenity,” says Agnes Briones, business unit head, Red Ribbon Bakeshop, Inc. “We look forward to bringing this added convenience to both our fans and newcomers to our brand who are curious to try our signature cakes, pastries and other baked treats that make Red Ribbon so special and unique.”
