Grab celebrates 10 bigaten years of empowering everyday Filipinos
On its 10th year, Grab celebrates the success of its partners and merchants in the Philippines, as it continues to be the leading superapp that helps make life better for every Filipino
MANILA, PHILIPPINES, JUNE 20, 2022 – Grab, the leading superapp in Southeast Asia, marks its 10th anniversary in the Philippines through a celebration of everyday convenience, growth, and success— made possible for every Filipino with the help of Grab’s tech and platform.
While starting out as a ride-hailing platform, Grab has evolved as the leading superapp across Southeast Asia – providing Filipinos unfettered access for their everyday needs, while supporting the country’s long term economic recovery and development. On its 10th anniversary, Grab Philippines is throwing a Biga10 celebration for its driver- and delivery-partners, merchants, and consumers!
Biga10 sa saya with Grab!
Last Friday, June 17, Grab kicked off its 10th year through a once-in-a-lifetime spectacle, unveiling its Grab Biga10 Wheel, which highlights 10 stories of growth and success from its partner and merchant communities.
“Nagsimula ako Grab dahil sa pinansyal na pangangailangan, at doon ay natutulungan ko ang aking pag-aaral at natutuloy-tuloy ko hanggang ngayon. Sa dami-dami naming Grab partner, Grab rider— libo libo— at isa ako dun sa napili bilang Biga10 sa 10th anniversary ni Grab. Sobrang saya at overwhelming para rin sa aking pamilya,” says Grab delivery-partner Jester Ocampo Castro.
“One of the things that I like about Grab is that merchants— big or small— has the opportunity to expand and grow. Thanks to Grab, we have seen InstaMart grow from a home-based business to a fully fledged online grocery store. This shows that even a small business like ours can grow and make a big impact in the community,” says Grab Merchant Partner Marvin Cabreza.

Biga10 support and celebration for Grab’s merchants and partners

The Biga10 celebration is not complete without recognizing Grab’s vast community of driver- and delivery-partners, all of whom have been key to Grab’s journey in the last decade. On June 20, Grab will be having its Ka-Grab Anniversary Concert – a fun-filled celebration featuring performances from music icons Aegis and Morissette and more.
“As we mark another milestone for Grab in the Philippines, we are immensely grateful to our kababayans who continue to believe in our mission and motivate us to be better at what we do best. Every Filipino has played a huge role in shaping Grab to what it is today, and we will continue outserving our kababayans the best way we know how – through our technology, platform, expertise, and our Filipino values. We have achieved great things in the past 10 years, and I believe that greater things can be accomplished if we all work together for the common good,” says Grab Philippines Country Head Grace Vera Cruz.

Grab is Southeast Asia’s leading superapp based on GMV in 2021 in each of food deliveries, mobility, and the e-wallets segment of financial services, according to Euromonitor. Grab operates across the deliveries, mobility, and digital financial services sectors in 480 cities in eight countries in the Southeast Asia region – Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. Grab enables millions of people each day to access its driver- and merchant-partners to order food or groceries, send packages, hail a ride or taxi, pay for online purchases, or access services such as lending, insurance, wealth management, and telemedicine, all through a single “everyday everything” app. Grab was founded in 2012 with the mission to drive Southeast Asia forward by creating economic empowerment for everyone, and since then, the Grab app has been downloaded onto millions of mobile devices. Grab strives to serve a triple bottom line: to simultaneously deliver financial performance for its shareholders and have a positive social and environmental impact in Southeast Asia.
