Fast-food chain Jollibee opens here

Popular fast-food chain Jollibee will be opening its first outlet in Singapore on Tuesday. 

It will be located on the sixth floor of Lucky Plaza along Orchard Road and will have a seating capacity of 300. 

Jollibee is a multinational fast-food chain that originated in the Philippines. 

The fast-food chain is famous for its signature crispy fried chicken, Chickenjoy. Other notable items on the menu include Yumburger, a beef burger, and Jollibee Spaghetti, which is served with sweet tomato sauce and cut up ham and sausage pieces. 

It was founded by Mr Tony Tan Caktiong in 1978. It is currently the largest fast-food chain in the Philippines, with 780 stores in the country. 

As part of its international expansion plan, it has opened 92 other outlets around the world, in places such as the United States, Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. 

Jollibee Singapore is a joint venture between Golden Plate, a Jollibee Foods Corporation subsidiary, and the Singapore-owned Beeworks Inc. 

The company was not able to confirm by press time if it is planning to open more Jollibee outlets in Singapore. 

In a release to the media, Beeworks’ representative, Ms Jennie Chua, said: “We are very hopeful that Jollibee’s signature great-tasting food will be enjoyed by Singapore residents. We are thrilled to partner an old friend, MrTony Tan Caktiong, who is a foremost Philippine entrepreneur, to bring Jollibee to Singapore.” 

Many Singaporeans are eagerly awaiting the opening of Jollibee here. A Facebook page for Jollibee Singapore, set up early this year, has amassed more than 17,000 likes.
