La Consolacion College hits it big at Gardenia’s Next Big Sandwich Hit
The 10 teams from top universities and colleges in Metro Manila waited with bated breath as to who will be declared grand champions of the “Next Big Sandwich Hit,” an inter-school sandwich-making and business idea generation competition organized by premiere bread company Gardenia Bakeries Philippines, Inc. (GBPI). The heart-pounding finale of the competition served as one of the highlights of Gardenia’s Happy Bread Day event, held recently at the Glorietta Activity Center.
In the end, after the audition rounds, the gruelling qualifying rounds at their schools, the demanding challenges at Mercato Centrale in Bonifacio Global City and the exhausting final cook-off, it was the team from La Consolacion College-Manila, composed of Kristina Francesca Jordan and Janmel Lolong, that bested all the other teams.
As their names and that of their school reverberated inside the venue after being hailed as Grand Champion of Gardenia’s Next Big Sandwich Hit, Jordan and Lolong were completely astonished.
“We really didn’t expect to win, especially after we saw a couple of schools bag the major awards, which have a significant impact on the teams’ total scores. As soon as our names were called, it took quite a moment for everything to sink in, and then we realized it was all true,” said Jordan and Lolong while holding the symbolic champion’s check and plaques amid the commotion and excitement inside the venue.
