Grab highlighted its evolution as a “super app” as it marked its 10th anniversary in the Philippines last Friday, June 17, during a well-attended celebration at the Conrad Hotel in Pasay City.
While starting out as a ride-hailing platform, Grab has become a leading super app across Southeast Asia. During its anniversary bash, Grab Philippines kicked off its 10th year unveiled 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,” said 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,” said Grab merchant partner Marvin Cabreza.

“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,” said Grab Philippines country head Grace Vera Cruz.
