It all started in early 1990 when Agnes Manansala De Joya wanted to pursue her passion for authentic Filipino food and desserts in San Diego, CA. Agnes also wanted a better life for her family here in the United States so she decided to open up her own business, Filipino Desserts Plus. From then on, her business grew and became widely known not only among the Filipino community in San Diego, but throughout the whole county. Her eldest daughter, Maybelline, then took over in early 2000’s and opened up a store in Mira Mesa then in Chula Vista. Maybelline and her husband, Derrick, would continue the family business after Agnes’ retirement.
In December 2012, Agnes unexpectedly passed away. However, Agnes’ legacy continues to live on through her daughter, son-in-law, and grand-daughter.
We would like to thank our friends and family for over 30 years of support!
