For those fans of Marvin Agustin and of course those who loved the foods on his restaurants, here's something that would make you proud of him. Famed not only in the entertainment industry, now in the food industry as well. Here's the details of him being named as Young Entrepreneur of the Year.

When restaurateur Marvin Agustin was included in the list of the 17 finalists for Ernst and Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year awards, the actor-turned- entrepreneur never imagined that he will bag one of the five awards during the recently-concluded Awards Banquet held at the Makati Shangrila Hotel.

“I really did not expect that I’d bring home an award,” says Marvin. “I am with such distinguished roster of respected people in the industry, people whom I really look up to, so I really didn’t think that I will bring home an award.”

Marvin admitted that he thought, out of the 14 finalists, only one will be declared winner. This is the reason why Marvin never really expected to win.

Unknown to Marvin, however, a Young Entrepreneur of the Year award will be given and luckily, the actor-entrepreneur got the distinction.

Marvin was joined by his mom during the said ceremonies.

He adds that his mom was more excited than him.

Marvin shared that a night before the banquet his mom, while reading the Bible, was asking for a sign if her son will win the recognition. Then, she chanced on a passage implying that since she has not wished for quite a while, the desires of her heart will be given to her.

So Marvin’s mom Teresa told him that he might win during the day of the event.

“I am really blessed that my mother supports everything that I do and she is super proud of my achievements,” shares Marvin. “She will always be my inspiration.”

Asked to differentiate receiving acting awards from the Young EOY commendation, Marvin quips, “when you win acting awards, it is inspiring because peers approve of your work. But here in the EOY, it is inspiring because of what it symbolizes – the recognition of the hard work you’ve put in to make your employees and their families survive.”

Marvin noted how National Bookstore founder Socorro Ramos approached him and said, “You have a beautiful story. Keep inspiring the youth.”

This recognition, according to Marvin, simply proves that with hard work, dedication, and determination, dreams really do come true.

Marvin was joined by manager and friend Annabelle Regalado-Borja, and business partners Raymund Magdaluyo and Ricky Laudico.

MARVIN AGUSTIN returns to the big screen with sure-fire comedy hit "MORON 5 and the Crying Lady

6:39:00 AM


Marvin Agustin has been out of the quiet on the big screen for quite some time and it's for sure that his fans are pretty thrilled to see him act again on the big screen. The movie is directed by Wenn V. Deramas entitled Moron 5 and the Crying Lady under Viva Films and MVP Pictures.


Half-witted longtime friends Albert (Luis), Isaac (Billy), Mozart "Mo" (DJ), Michaelangelo "Mike" (Martin) and Aristotle "Aris" (Marvin Agustin) were used to living moronic yet pretty normal and hassle-free lives until successful careerwoman Becky Pamintuan (John Lapus) accused them of killing her father and ruin everything for them. The Moron 5 are more than sure of their innocence but the life of them, they cannot find a single satisfactory argument on how to prove it especially when their opponent would do everything to punish them for whim.

Spending three miserable years in prison trying different failed comedic attempts to get out, they finally figured a way to escape. They stalked Becky and try to understand why she is fighting so hard to have them imprisoned when it's clear as day that what happened three years ago was a nonsense frame-up.


An opportunity came when Becky's driver got fired for having an affair with her maid and Albert volunteered to apply to replace him. He infiltrated the Pamintuan Residence and together with this four crazily daft friends, they've gathered information about the curious family yet to them, Becky's unexplained hatred for them it isn't making any sense at all.

Why is Becky fighting so hard to have them suffer? The Moron 5 will try their hardest to know and hopefully understand what's really going on although little did they know that by doing so, everything that they hold dear might be at risk.

Have You Seen Marvin Agustin Goes Door-to-Door With Knorr?

6:18:00 PM

Marvin Agustin’s journey to what he is today—a successful chef and restaurateur—is so inspiring that it became the cornerstone of his latest endorsement for Knorr Cubes.

Marvin recently signed on to become the new brand ambassador for Knorr Cubes, the favorite partner of people like him who are passionate about food and cooking. As such, he is also the new face behind Knorr Cubes’ “Door to door Sabaw Challenge” in which he will be visiting different cities all over the Philippines, challenging cooks to identify which is the better, more ma-karne and better-tasting sabaw: the one made with Knorr Cubes, or not?

During the challenge, Marvin will present two versions of sabaw, one made with granules and the other, made with Knorr cubes. Marvin believes so much in the product’s claims to deliver the meatiest taste and flavor that he throws in a promise to give up cooking if they end up choosing the sabaw that’s not made of Knorr cubes—and everyone knows how passionate Marvin is about cooking, so for him to promise that is a big deal.

Among the locations Marvin will visit are Laguna, Iloilo, and Metro Manila. There will be a series of 30-seconder commercials featuring Marvin engaging cooks and housewives to take part in the challenge.

“That’s really what it’s about: Marvin being confident about the product so much that he’s willing to give up his passion for cooking just to prove a point, which is that Knorr cubes is the meatiest out of all the cooking aids in the Philippines,” says Monica Rios, brand manager of Knorr for Unilever Philippines, which is spearheading the Door-to-door challenge.

Marvin grew up in a household where cooking was a passion. Their apartment was small, and from the living room, one could sit and smell what was being cooked in the kitchen.

His mother loved to cook Filipino dishes. “Mahilig kami sa sabaw. Mahilig kami sa sinigang, mahilig kami sa nilaga. Every meal, kailangan laging may sabaw. Sabaw at kanin,” recalls Marvin. “At we really used Knorr cubes. Kahit pinakbet, nilalagyan ng Knorr shrimp na cubes.”

As a teenager, Marvin worked as a waiter, and later, became a mascot for a popular fastfood chain. From there, he worked his way up, became a popular actor and re-invented himself into a successful businessman with a chain of restaurants that includes Sumo Sam, Oyster Boy, Marciano’s, Komrad, John and Yoko and Mr. Kurosawa.

This is what inspired Unilever to choose him to be the latest endorser of Knorr Cubes.

Says Rios: “It’s a nice success story to hear, that he started out as a waiter, and even worked as a mascot for a while. He has proven that he can rise above all the challenges in life. Now he’s a chef and a restaurateur. It’s very inspiring, the way he was able to achieve everything…maypassion siya, and he just really went for it. So it’s a nice feeling for him to be endorsing the product.”

Marvin feels honored to be chosen to join Knorr’s family of chefs. “When I first learned about it (endorsement), sabi ko, everyone knows that I really love cooking. I love cooking for my friends and my family, and Knorr cubes is really what we use for soup. So napakasaya at family-orientedang pino-promote namin na brand.”
