A few months ago, it was announced that Jollibee would be opening its doors in Mississauga and Scarborough by spring of this year. Unfortunately, Filipino fast food fans had to wait a little bit longer to get their hands on some Chicken Joy, as the company delayed its store openings to this fall.
According to Paola Caldaroni, Jollibee's marketing coordinator with the Orlando Corporation, the company decided last minute to change the store size to 50,000 square feet instead of 35,000 square feet. Management was required to reapply for permits, which caused the delay in opening dates.
However, fans can expect the Mississauga store to finally open sometime between September and November at the Heartland Town Centre by Mavis Rd and Boyer Blvd. The super grocery Seafood City is slated to come first and Jollibee will follow a few weeks later.
As for the Scarborough store, no word on expected opening dates have been announced; however, some sources reveal that it may open sometime near the end of this year or next. Several job openings have been posted online, and RioCan has released a map of Kennedy Commons outlining where the Jollibee will be located:

UPDATE: The Scarborough and Mississauga location openings have been delayed to 2018.
