The famous Mojos of Shakey's is cuurenly missing in action due to issues with suppliers.

Aside for the pizzas, Mojo Potatoes is one of the most popular items on the menu of the Shakey's.

Soft potatoes with a textured, savory crust dipped in either gravy or the special garlic white sauce—what’s not to love?

But have you noticed that, recently, it seemed to be M.I.A.?

Even when you order it with the fried chicken—the so-called Chicken N’ Mojos combo—servers would offer giving French fries instead.

What happened to Shakey’s Mojos?

According to the Philippine Daily Inquirer, we’re not imagining things. Servers at Shakey’s have apparently been told that its famous Mojos have been “temporarily phased out” due to issues with suppliers.

The Inquirer reached out to the head office of Shakey’s Pizza Ventures and a representative confirmed the supply-chain issues.

However, the rep made the assurance that “mojos haven’t been phased out and they’re on the way.”

“We didn’t experience shortage from our suppliers,” the Shakey’s rep said.

“The shipments just got delayed because of supply chain bottlenecks.”

Shakey’s added that the problem should be sorted out within the month and that we should be getting our Mojos fix before welcoming February.

Shakey’s is owned by the Century Pacific Group, which acquired a controlling interest in the pizza chain from the Prieto family in 2016.

The new Shakey’s Pizza Asia Ventures Inc (SPAVI) has acquired more food brands over the years, including Potato Corner in 2021.
