MANILA, Philippines ― Jollibee, the leading fast-food chain in the Philippines, is making waves overseas as it was recently considered by a food website as one of the top 10 best foreign fast-food chains in the United States.
In an article posted last September 22, food website The Daily Meal included Jollibee in its article entitled “10 Foreign Chain Restaurants We’re Glad Came Into US.”
According to The Daily Meal, Jollibee is “hugely popular in the Philippines, and has locations scattered around the US, largely in California.”
“Aside from burgers, they offer fried chicken, spaghetti, noodles, and unique breakfast dishes like Spam, beef tenders, or sweet pork with rice,” The Daily Meal added.
In the US, Jollibee offers Filipino favorites such as Chickenjoy, Amazing Aloha, Spaghetti, and Ultimate Burger Steak.
It is also offering food items which are only available in the US such as Chicken Dippers, Little Big Bites, Ube and Buko Pandan Pearl Cooler, Banana-Jackfruit Pie, and Halo-halo.
Jollibee has 30 outlets in the United States in California, Hawaii, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Texas, Washington, and Virginia.
The Daily Meal is a food website founded and led by Colman Andrews, an eight-time recipient of the James Beard Foundation Awards, which is the “highest honor for food and beverage professionals working in North America.”
