Chooks-to-Go backs Kobe Paras’ second foray in US


Chooks-to-Go will be continuing its support for Kobe Paras as he embarks on a new journey in the United States.

“We will continue to support Kobe in his pursuit of having a career abroad. We at Chooks-to-Go continue to believe that he has yet to reach his full potential,” said Chooks-to-Go president Ronald Mascariñas.

“He is not just our ambassador but a son to us. We got his back through thick or thin.”

For the past month, Kobe, his dad Benjie, and Mascariñas have been plotting the 6-foot-6 stalwart’s next move after the cancellation of UAAP Season 83 and the postponement of Season 84.

Though Mascariñas would have loved for Paras to stay in his alma mater University of the Philippines for at least one more season, time was not on the 23-year-old’s side.

An opportunity to train abroad came two weeks ago. That is why last Wednesday, Chooks-to-Go immediately booked his flight to Los Angeles, California before heading to Cincinnati, Ohio where he would train full-time.

“We have Kobe’s back through thick and thin,” continued the sports patron.

Back in 2018, it was Mascariñas and Chooks-to-Go who paved the way for Kobe to come back home at the request of his father Benjie.

Since then, Kobe has been an ambassador for the brand.
