Not known to many, Coco Martin once served Max’s Fried Chicken dishes to customers in one of Max’s Restaurant branches, specifically at SM Fairview, back in 2001.

Even before his big break in showbiz, he has been getting cameo roles and modeling stints. While still making ends meet, it all started when he was offered to audition in ABS-CBN with Johnny Manahan through a talent-scout whom he met at Max’s Restaurant. 12 years after, he now serves as the celebrity endorser of the well-loved brand – Max’s Restaurant.

Since late last year, you would have seen several ‘Coco Martin‘ standees in all Max’s Restaurant branches.

In a recent press con, it was asked what happens to Piolo Pascual then? After 7 years of being Max’s main celebrity endorser, Piolo remains to be part of the Max’s family. As a Max’s officer mentioned, their endorsers don’t just come and go after a contract, they just “grow their family.” Celebrating their 70th year in two years, who knows, a reunion among Max’s celebrity endorsers might even be possible.

Start of Something New

This is only the start. You might have seen his introductory Max’s TV commercial back in November 2012. This will be followed by a series, the first of which will come out by the end of February or early March of this year. The series focuses on Coco’s relationship with the brand slowly unfolding the ‘connection.’

Pag dumating ang pinaka-love mo, ang sarap!“, exclaims Coco Martin.

But more than the ‘yummy‘ smile girls giggle over, you would see through Coco’s words and actions. You can see his sincerity and support for the brand that he knows very well by heart and you will feel his humble spirit in joining back a family he once was with  that is Max’s.
