Carlo's Bakeshop and Cafe launches All Occasion Rolls Collection

Carlo’s Bakeshop and Café has something new to offer – the All Occasion Rolls Collection. Available in full and half sizes, the rolls come in variants that are known to be Ilonggo favorites, which are Ultimate Chocolate, Mangoes and Cream, Ube Macapuno, Mochaccino, Dulce de Leche, and Brazos de Mercedes. These delicious rolls are expected to be a big hit as these are sold at very affordable prices, ranging from P220 for the half rolls to P420 for the full rolls, depending on the flavor.

Carlo’s Bakeshop and Café has been serving Iloilo since 1987 with their breads and cakes.  A companion to mothers who work to give their children nutritious and sumptuous meals on the table, Carlo’s Bakeshop and Café has noticed the high demand of the market for more tasty food in their homes, expanding their menu to include savory meals and catering.

A Family Collaboration
Carlo’s Bakeshop and Café was introduced into the market by Mrs. Rosalie Sarabia Trenas who has been at the forefront of the success of the RJT (Rosalie & Jerry Trenas) Group in Iloilo City. The RJT Group of Companies includes restaurants: Ang Kamalig and Wild Bamboo.  

Today, all five children of Congressman Jerry and Mrs. Rosalie Trenas are at the helm of the company, with each one heading different departments and restaurants. The siblings have studied in courses related to the business such as business and entrepreneurship, hotel and restaurant management, culinary arts and pastry and confectionary diploma courses. They are definitely the new blood in charge as they have expanded Carlo’s to reach the far flung provinces of Antique and Aklan and added more product lines and items on the menu.

Carlo’s is one of the top Bakeshops in Panay island and will continue to aggressively grow with the Treñas siblings vision of being the number one bakeshop in the Visayas.

The Launching
For this next phase, the children Raisa Trenas, CEO; Carlo Trenas, Director for Carlo’s Store Operations; and Paolo Trenas, head of Marketing and Business Development of RJT Group are both excited to announce the new All Occasion Rolls Collection to be launched this summer by Carlo’s.

“It’s exciting for us to launch this new line because we see more and more mothers provide cakes or desserts for the family while pinching their budgets. Especially during family celebrations, cakes and rolls are a staple, making the occasion more special. We decided to offer them more choices in terms of cakes and rolls so they can make the moments count.  In the end, that’s what we are all about, goodness in every moment,” said Paolo during the launch.

The guests were treated to a sumptuous buffet meal with presentation corners for rolls served in various occasions, from graduation to birthdays to baptisms. Guests were treated to party games and fun as well, much like the character of the new product line which is really celebratory.  Everybody went home happy.

“We’re happy and proud of this product and our team.  It is a good time to launch” said Raisa.  “We are just in time for graduation and for the fiestas, and you know how Ilonggos love their sweets and desserts. We still have more flavors and products to offer soon, knowing the market is also growing in size and demands.”

Carlo’s Rolls for Everyone
All flavors of the rolls collection were served to the guests and each had their own favorites. There is the Mangoes and Cream Roll with our famous sweet Guimaras mangoes plus cream filling, and Dulce de Leche Roll which uses our own delicacy of dulce gatas with caramel and cream. The Ube and Macapuno Roll and Brazos de Mercedes are the usual Pinoy favorites.

There is also something for the coffeeholics, which is Mochaccino. Chocolate lovers will definitely love the Ultimate Chocolate Roll, made with chocolate cream and topped with chocolate chips. As you can see, there is something for every taste.
