Jollibee, the Extremely Popular Filipino Restaurant, is Coming to Edmonton!

Edmontonians are about to get one of the most successful Filipino restaurants of all time; Jollibee.

EDMONTON — Edmontonians will soon be able to enjoy the great foods of the Philippines through the very successful Filipino fast food chain, Jollibee.

There are over 3,000 Jollibee locations worldwide at the time of this writing, but only one location in Canada. Winnipeg, Manitoba. Winnipeg’s Jollibee just opened its doors on December 15, 2016, less than two months ago, and the company already has plans to open at least 4 more locations across our nation.

It’s to be assumed that the location is doing quite well, seeing as there are now plans to open up a second Jollibee location in Scarborough, Ontario by the end of this year.

With that said, in 2018, there are plans for locations to be up and running out of Mississauga, and Edmonton, with a second location in Winnipeg.

There are roughly 660,000 Filipino Canadians across the nation at this time, with over 59,000 of them residing in Manitoba, 106,000 living in Alberta, and 275,000 residing in Ontario.

Those unaware, Jollibee serves foods such as Filipino-influenced hamburgers, chicken, spaghetti, french fries, salads, desserts, breakfast and more.

    Rafa Dadivas, looks like Jolibee won’t be open until 2018. Anyhow, good enough reason for a visit. I thought it was like “McDo”, but it looks like they serve spaghetti too. Do they offer halo-halo and bubble tea?

    Elizabeth Anne Cruz Zalamea and Vince Zalamea, a reason to visit Edm once Jolibee is up. Though it Doesn’t make sense why they’re putting a second location in Winterpeg instead of Vancouver.

      They serve fried chicken as well. We’ll definitely visit once it’s open.

      Vince Zalamea . LOL. We’ll, guess if u add a stop at the Premier Outlets at Tulalip, there’s two good reasons to cross the border (may want to bring an “alternate” cell phone). Edward Matsubara was joking if spaghetti with hotdogs will be served. Looks like it’s on the menu. Yum!

      Yeah Vancouver would make lots of sense. Because who wants to go to the USA (Tukwila, WA) just for Jollibee?

      When Jollibee opened in NYC, there was line up to go there for about a couple years, someone told me…I can’t remember who, but it’s gonna be like here cuz it’ll be the only one here in Western Canada.
