The concept’s unique feature is that any fund raised from operations goes towards charity.
PTT Philippines Corp. has managed to collect P2 million from operations of its Restroom 20, amatchless, air-conditioned washroom at its 2-hectare PTT SCTEx station, which is the firm’s largest fuel service station in the Philippines. A pay-restroom concept that originated from the firm’s parent PTT Public Co. Ltd., Thailand’s largest fuel firm, features Restroom 20, which was showcased by PTT Philippines President and CEO SukanyaSeriyothin at the launching of PTT Subic-Clark–Tarlac Expressway (SCTEx).
Designed to be luxurious but, at the same time, environment- and customer-friendly, Restroom 20 has a solar roof that could save energy of as much as 1.5-megawatt per month. Moreover, Restroom 20’s unique purpose to give out to charity whatever fund it may raise from its operations is the most outstanding aspect than its well-appointed features.
PTT Restroom 20, since it started operations has already reached the P2-million mark collection and formally turned them over to several beneficiaries identified by the local and provincial governments, which include New Concepcion Senior Citizens Consumers Cooperative, Concepcion Day Care Workers Federation, Community Volunteer Barangay Health Workers, and many more.
“Our customers deserve more than what we offer in our pump. We cannot just simply offer fuel to our customers in this highly competitive downstream industry,” Seriyothin said. “There must also be a good corporate citizenship, which we value in PTT.”
With 122 fuel service stations currently located in various parts of the country, PTT diversified recently in the country with the opening of Café Amazon, the most popular coffee chain in Thailand with over 2,000 stores, is set to open its convenience store Jiffy in the country.
