Gen Z café owners open 90th branch in Fairview

The first black soft-serve ice cream in the Philippines,

Black Scoop Cafe, finally opened a branch in Fairview, Quezon City, last 7 July.

Since its inception in 2018, with the first outlet in Maginhawa Street, Quezon City, Black Scoop Cafe has branched out to 89 locations all over the Philippines, making the Ayala Fairview Terraces’ garden in Fairview more memorable as the 90th branch of the cafe.

The cafe’s owners are the youngest merchants of all store owners in the mall. They are there not just to sell and earn but for a more meaningful reason — to bolster Gen Zs taking over the business field.

Black Scoop Cafe in Ayala Fairview Terraces, co-owned by chief executive officer RK Peralta, 23, and his partner and chairman of the cafe, Jason Dublin, 24, envision themselves taking over the business but, more importantly, Gen Zs to take over the business industry.

“There’s like a connotation that Gen Zs aren’t capable of doing these things, so this is a testament that we are capable,” Peralta said.

Even up to the employees, Peralta and Dublin hired Gen Zs, showing a more powerful testament to their primary goal of uplifting the status of the current generation in the business sector.

“Gen Zs are ready to take over. I believe that everything can be learned naman, so I’m confident also with the staff, with the team that we have,” Peralta explained when asked about their biggest challenge.

Black Scoop Cafe offers a variety of sweet and savory food and beverage options that everyone can indulge in.

Menu includes (tea drinks) frappe, coffee, cream cheese lattes; (food) pancakes, rice meals, pasta, wings, sandwiches/wraps.

The café also serves a “secret menu” — known only to loyal patrons — the Biscoff collection. It includes a Biscoff-flavored milk tea and frappe.
