Canadians will be able to enjoy even more crispy chicken and Jolly spaghetti soon. New Jollibee Canada locations are opening to end off the year and there are plans for even more expansion across the country. Plus, there are new exclusive giveaways to celebrate the new locations.
To end off what the restaurant calls a "record-breaking year for the brand in North America", the brand is opening its fourth location in the Greater Toronto Area on December 20 and its first-ever store in Saskatchewan on December 22.
The new stores in Vaughan and Regina are just two components of Jollibee's expansion into Canada.
"It's important for us to make Jollibee as accessible as possible to our customers so we're working to have a presence in all the major provinces in Canada," Maribeth Dela Cruz, President of Jollibee Foods Corporation for North America, said in a news release.
"We knew Saskatchewan had to be next on our list as this province has a strong Filipino community and continues to grow," said Dela Cruz."We cannot wait to bring our fellow Filipinos a 'taste of home' and encourage Regina locals to come see for themselves why our delicious Jolly Crispy Chicken is so sought after."
Including the two new openings in Vaughan and Regina, there are only nine of the Filipino chicken locations in Canada so far.
But the fast-food brand has big plans for Canada and wants to have 100 stores open in Canada by 2023.
They first opened in Canada back in 2016 and new locations have popped up in Ontario, Alberta and Manitoba since then.
At the fast-food brand's most recent openings in Edmonton and Calgary in August and September, people were so excited that they actuallylined up outside the stores before they opened just to get a taste of what Jollibee has to offer.
To celebrate the opening of the new stores, there is a bunch of exclusive access like an advance tasting for select customers at the Regina store and exciting giveaways like Jollibee Funko Pop! figures, other collectibles, and a year's supply of Jolly Crispy Chicken.
The new location in Vaughan will be in the Promenade shopping mall in Thornhill and the Regina store will be at 2830 Quance Street.
