Zark’s: Upgrading Your Burger Experience


“We did a study and found out that during that time, walang casual dining burger joint. So, I filled the gap sa market, yung need sa market na I think may potential mag scale up. Hindi naman ako nagkamali. Sinimulan ko yung Zark’s.”, Zark recalls.

Young entrepreneur, Rolandrei Viktor “Zark” Varona, found the middle ground in offering hamburgers that truly satisfy even the most gargantuan appetites, yet at prices that do not break the bank.

It began eight years ago on a casual stroll along the Malate area, Zark discovered a vacant 20- sqm. commercial space along Taft Avenue. At that time, the former OFW, who had just concluded a two-year stint in the kitchens of a cruise ship already owning a franchise for a noodle shop that unfortunately did not work. After six months, he revisited the spot and knew that the location held much potential. The concentration of a young market gave him the idea to put up a burger joint. Everything was history!

 Fresh. Huge. Great. 

Consistent with Zark’s Burgers’ tagline “Fresh. Huge. Great.” The burgers come out fresh in huge servings, offering a great and filling dining experience with a sporty theme in mind. 

Zark’s taking burgers to the next level with its all-new burger offerings starting at Php109! 

The New Orleans favorite, Ragin Cajun, is your pick for something spicy! 

Ranch Time, for burgers topped with Zark’s version of Cajun dressing. 

Floyd Chicken Sandwich is boneless deep-fried chicken oozing with garlic cream cheese in six different herbs and spices. 

Sloppy J wins with its homemade chunky meat sauce. 


What made Zark’s famous? 

The Deep-Fried Bacon Wrapped, quarter pound deep-fried cheeseburger with their signature Barbeque Rhum sauce. 

Luther Burger, double cheeseburger with two bacon strips sandwiched in honey-glazed donuts. Thunder Mac & Cheese, burger topped with mac & cheese and bacon strips. 

Jawbreaker, triple cheeseburgers with two slices of spam and bacon strips smothered in cheese sauce. 

Tombstone, eight all-beef patties, four slices of stacked American cheddar, topped with overflowing cheese sauce. 

More of Zark’s Burgers

The burger market seems to have embraced Zark’s wholeheartedly! There are currently 32 branches nationwide -- with four currently in Visayas. With eight more opening including Davao and Cagayan de Oro. Expansion in the North furthers as a new store in Clark opens, going forward by city. This is the pace that Zark prefers for the growth of all his company-owned branches. 

“I think it’s really the value for money. The principle is to be fair, not only with my suppliers, not only with my team members, but also with the customers. I don’t want to rip them off, ganun yung values ko. I give them the values sa ibabayad nila. And I think they appreciate (naman) what we serve to them.” 

“I think it’s the right time for us to announce to everyone that we are here; we’re taking the Zark’s brand to the next level and we’re the number one casual dining burger joint.” 


“We have developed a system, built our own commissary, strong and competent management team. Along with that, yes. We are opening our doors for franchising.” For franchising inquiries, please feel free to contact franchise@zarksburgers.ph

Head of the family: Not Just a Provider But a Father

Imagine working in a world where time seems to just past by and where almost everything changes instantly. Think of having to keep up with an environment where it costs a lot to stop or even slow down for a while. Sound taxing, right? What more of prioritizing the welfare of everybody in the household on top of it all. 

But every head of the family doesn’t mind about it. Fathers are said to be the pillars of our homes. They toil sun up to sun down to give our needs and desires.

Some of them go abroad with tears in their eyes because they will be physically separated from their families. However, there is a certain joy in their hearts knowing that they will be able to provide for their loved ones back home.

To honor these gallant paternal men and let them feel how extraordinary they are and important their sacrifices are for their families, Father’s Day has been a yearly universal event. As we mark again this special occasion on Sunday, June 18, 2017, our applause and recognition will never be enough to show them how grateful we are to have them in our lives. 

Our dads, together with our moms, take good care of us the moment we’re born. They are the ones who provide everything we need for our everyday lives. From infancy up to adulthood, they feed and clothe us. 

As we take our initial baby steps, our patriarchs guide and lead us in the right direction. When we stumble and fall, they assist us to rise and move on. In times of danger or any threat, they shield us from any harm.

All of these, they do out of unconditional love. Their selflessness, though, has its own toll. Working tirelessly could lead to high levels of stress constantly and problems not only mentally, but physically, too. So better watch out for the signs. 

Has tatay been constantly complaining about losing strands and strands of his hair everyday? Or maybe has he been searching for a way on how to get them to grow back?

According to the hair loss statistics conducted by Statistic Brain in the year 2016, 40 percent of men experience noticeable mane vanishing as early as age 35. And as per the American Hair Loss Association, there are a couple of different factors that cause excessive hair fall, one being extreme degree of stress.

Nutramedica Inc. introduced a revolutionary product that aims to address this problem: NOVUHAIR, nature’s answer to hair loss. Being the only topical scalp lotion in the country that is made from 19 natural herbs, essential oils and co-factor nutrients all working synergistically, it’s perfect for all the heads of the family out there, be they biological or not.

NOVUHAIR is proven effective and safe to help prevent and stop the progression of hair loss and, at the same time, help promote locks’ growth. Simply spray a liberal amount of NOVUHAIR topical scalp lotion onto the scalp and massage for 5-10 minutes. Voila, it penetrates deeply into the roots, which helps rejuvenate, nourish and maintain the natural moisture of the hair. 

Still have no idea on what to give him on his big day? Well, NOVUHAIR might not be the most expensive gift to impress him, but the most valuable present he could ever have. This nature’s answer to hair loss provides him the chance to be ahead already in preventing his “crowning glory” from receding in the near future. 


So, head on to all leading stores nationwide and get a dose of this breakthrough product. NOVUHAIR is also available in shampoo and conditioner formats to further complement the benefits of NOVUHAIR topical scalp lotion. NOVUHAIR is available at Mercury Drug and other leading drugstores nationwide. You may also order NOVUHAIR online at www.lazada.com.ph.
