FILIPINO FAST FOOD CHAIN OPENS FIRST CALGARY STORE TO MUCH FANFARE
Hundreds of Filipino Canadians stood in line for Jollibee’s first store in the province of Calgary which opened to the public on Friday, September 20, 2019.
The fast food behemoth from the Philippines is famous for its deep fried chicken, Filipino-style spaghetti and baked pastries.
Jollibee Calgary marks their seventh location in Canada.
Jollibee had previously said that it plans to open 100 locations across Canada by the year 2023.
Calgarian Tim Nixon was first in line, two days before it actually opened.
By the time Jollibee Calgary opened, there were 400 other people waiting in line with Nixon.
Speaking to Global News, Nixon said “I didn’t have a clue what was going to happen here. This is a total shock for me.”
Nixon had first tried Jolly Crispy Chicken during a trip to Las Vegas, NV.
Jollibee spokesperson Maribeth de la Cruz sees a bright future for the company in the province.
Speaking to Global News, de la Cruz said “We’re very optimistic about the future of Jollibee in Canada, specifically in Alberta,” Maribeth Dela Cruz from JFC North America said.
“To have this big crowd, it’s really overwhelming and we’re humbled by the turnout. We have another store lined up by Macleod Trail. It’s going to be a drive-through location, scheduled to open sometime next year.”
Jollibee opened its first location in the province, in the city of Edmonton.
That location served an incredible 8,000 customers on opening day.
The first person in line for Jollibee Edmonton had never even tried it before, but decided to camp out anyway.
Jollibee’s aggressive expansion in Canada is targeting the major urban centres where Filipinos are in large numbers.
In a press release, Jollibee said that “as the most populated city in Alberta and home to more than 100,000 Filipinos, Calgary was the natural choice for the next store location.”
Every opening in Canada has a sneak peek open to select people (usually local politicians and VIPs invited, as well as a few members of the public who receive invitations through a Facebook contest), and the first few people lining up on the first day receive a year of free chicken.
They’ve also been giving away limited edition Funko Pops, with the mascot wearing a Barong Tagalog.
JOLLIBEE TO OPEN 100 CANADIAN LOCATIONS IN 5 YEARS
Filipino fast food giant Jollibee is currently undertaking an aggressive expansion across Canada.
Jollibee is planning to open 100 branches in Canada within the next five years.
There are currently seven locations in Canada, two in Alberta, two in Manitoba and three in Ontario.
The first Winnipeg store opened in 2016, to massive crowds who stood in line in the dead of winter.
Curious Canadians joined thousands of Filipinos to check out what the fuss was all about, resulting in Jollibee’s wildly successful debut in Canada.
When asked by Retail Insider, Jollibee boss guy Jose Minana said that reaching the 100 branch objective was doable.
“It’s a matter of having the ability to ramp this up and as we look at our organization and our capabilities, 100 stores would be something that’s very realistic for us to do,” Minana told Retail Insider.
Many were surprised by Jollibee’s choice of Manitoba for the first location.
Minana explained to Retail Insider, “Winnipeg has the highest density of Filipinos in any city in Canada. There’s 70,000 Filipinos over there. And so right away we opened two and they’re doing very well. Clearly we’re planning to open a couple more there in Winnipeg but we started off by going over here, obviously to Ontario.”
Minana continued by saying that Jollibee decides to look into opening new locations where there are massive numbers of FIlipinos.
“In Canada, there are about 700,000 Filipinos. In the U.S., there are about 3.4 million Filipinos. However, here in Canada what we see . . . the market is very, very open to international brands. Very open to new types of products, regardless of where they come from,” Minana told Retail Insider.
Talking about what’s popular in Canada, Minana checked off the best items on the Jollibee Canada menu, “It’s amazing the number of Jolly Crispy chicken that we sell here in Canada. It’s a lot more than we sell in the Philippines on a per store basis. Our spaghetti is very, very unique. It’s sweet-style spaghetti with hot dogs . . . It’s a very Filipino tradition to have spaghetti for birthdays. I grew up with spaghetti in my younger days. Basically the majority did. There’s this belief that you’ve got to eat noodles, the longer the noodles the better because it’s for longer life. And Jollibee spaghetti has been part and parcel of the Filipino’s life as they grew up.”
Minana also spoke to Retail Insider about importing the ingredients For its popular baked pastry, the Peach Mango Pie, “We have peach mango pie. The mangos are all imported from the Philippines. We’re very proud of our mangos. It’s really one of the best in the world. You mix it with Western peach. It’s quite different. It’s a universally accepted product but with a very different twist. It makes it very unique.”
Jollibee has come a long, long way since its humble beginnings as an iced cream parlour in 1975.
It opened its 1,000th store in Dubai, UAE in 2015.
Jollibee is the Philippines’ largest fast food chain, successfully staving off multinational corporations such as McDonalds.
In recent years, Jollibee has undertaken massive expansion in international markets including the US, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Brunei.
Jollibee is the largest food service company in Asia, with a presence in 16 countries and over four thousand stores across the world.
