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.
In closing, here’s a fun video of Jollibee mascots doing a dance that went viral in 2014:
