About Foodee Global Concepts
Foodee Global Concepts has now grown into a food empire. It has become the number one multi-faceted food operator in the Philippines thanks to a careful selection of restaurant concepts (like Mesa, Todd English Food Hall, Tim Ho Wan, Pound Burgers, Hook, and FOO'D By Davide Oldani) that will stand the test of time and the ever-adapting Filipino palate.
When Rikki and Beng Dee started, they had a simple dream as two 19-year olds: to feed their newborn son as they were both still studying. Rikki sold his car and put up Chin Chin on Pasay Road where they specialized in Chinese food--with Rikki waiting on tables and Beng doing the cashier's work. Chin Chin was their pet name for their son Eric Thomas. Their bestseller, fish head noodle soup, was well-loved by a then unknown Henry Sy, Sr. He would frequently call up their restaurant after a long day at work and ask to keep it open so he could eat.
One day in 1987, Eric recounts, Henry Sy, Sr. tells his father Rikki, "You are a great guy, hardworking. I am opening a mall and I want you to be a tenant." The mall that opened 30 years ago was SM North EDSA. The rest is history.
