Cabanas' call center to generate hundreds of jobs

MALOLOS CITY—Hundreds of jobs are expected to be generated by P60-Million facility that will house call center was inaugurated here on February 21.

Victoria Bustos, the President of the Dona Rita Realty Corporation (DRRC) said the four storey North Wing 4 (N4) Building will host a call center along with commercial offices for banks and others business establishments.

Located at the Cabanas garden mall here, the N4 building was first designed as a three storey facility.

But it was expanded to four after local businessmen offered to rent its top floor for call center operations.

“It will easily generate hundreds of jobs to Bulakenyos,” said Governor Wilhelmino Alvarado who led the soft launching of the N4.

He said that increasing investments in the province is one of the signs of rising confidence of investors to the government.

Alvarado also hailed the DRRC which is being operated by children Donato and Margarita Santiago who founded the Bulacan Garden Corporation in the lat 1950s.

Citing accomplishments of the company, the governor described the DRRC as a catalyst in local development.

As a pioneer in local real estate development, Alvarado said that the Santiago family has greatly contributed to the province’s development.

This is through the construction of class A and Class B residential subdivisions here and in the town of Calumpit since the late 80s when members of the Santiago family decided to diversify their business interest from landscaping business of the Bulacan Garden Corporation.

The latest business venture of the DRRC is the Cabanas garden mall, a premier commercial center in this city which opened five years ago.

For her part, Fely Rodrigo, the Vice President of the DRRC said that investing in Bulacan is partly in compliance to their father’s advise.

She said that their father Donato Santiago reminded them to invest in Bulacan to provide jobs and spearhead development.

“Our fathers told us many times that business is now just about earning money but about helping others,” she said.  Dino Balabo
