Filipino fast-food giant Jollibee is accelerating its plans to continue its expansion in the Canadian market. With the opening of its fifth location in Canada (and its first in the west coast), Jollibee’s next store will be at the Promenade Mall in the suburban community of Thornhill. We can’t wait to meet you Jollibee Promenade Mall.
Just a few minutes north of Downtown Toronto, the suburban community of Thornhill has a population of 56,361.
Because of its proximity to the City of Toronto, the population of Thornhill has grown dramatically. Thornhill is now home to a large number of Filipinos, many of whom came to Canada under the now-defunct Live In Caregiver Program.
Thornhill is home to Canadians from diverse backgrounds, including Jewish, Chinese, Korean, Persian and Italian.
To put things in perspective, there are 33,000 members of the Jewish community, while there are approximately 2,535 Filipinos living in the Thornhill area.
The Promenade Mall is a shopping centre popular with Filipinos in Thornhill, Ontario.
The mall is over 879,000 sq ft, and includes stores like T&T Supermarket (which sells a LOT of Filipino food), H&M and Old Navy.
The Promenade Mall was home to one of Canada’s last Sears locations.
BUILD IT BY DESIGN
Mississauga-based construction company BUILD IT By Design (who also constructed the Jollibee location at Seafood City in Mississauga) confirmed to BlogTO that the Promenade Mall location will be over 3,300 sq ft.
Construction has already begun, and is estimated to be completed in three months.
BlogTO is predicting a late November or early December opening. They were right, looks like Christmas is coming early for the Filipinos in the area.
