Guess what? Canada just got a new Jollibee! It took a couple of years, but the day has finally arrived: Jollibee Regina Saskatchewan is finally open!
The Filipino community continues to grow in Canada. There are Filipinos in every province and territory in Canada.
For those unfamiliar with Jollibee, it’s difficult to understand how the opening of a fast food joint can be considered an event.
The Filipino fast food behemoth (it’s bigger than McDonalds in the Philippines) is planning to open 150 stores in Canada by 2023.
So far, it’s got nine, with the latest opening in Regina, Saskatchewan.
REGINA MAN FIRST IN LINE FOR NEW JOLLIBEE
A local Regina man lined up outside the new Jollibee 19 hours before the doors were scheduled to open to the public.
Jason Marx had his first taste of Jollibee during a visit to Winnipeg.
“I’ve known about Jollibee for a while but with it not being in Canada, it was hard for me to try it. Then, when I was in Winnipeg, I heard Jollibee had opened there and tried the chicken, spaghetti and pie. I wanted to be the first customer in line to experience Jollibee again in Regina and try more of the menu,” Marx said.
It’s not Jollibee Canada’s first rodeo. They planned ahead, and provided heated tents for Marx and the hundreds of other fans who stood in the cold to be first in line for Jollibee Regina Saskatchewan.
JOLLIBEE CANADA STORE OPENINGS CONTINUE TO DRAW MASSIVE CROWDS
Jollibee Canada’s store openings continue to draw massive crowds who line up for days for a chance to be among the first to get their hands on some Jollibee Yumburgers, Chicken Joy and Palabok.
Brand loyalty isn’t anything new for Jollibee, and they have used it to maximum advantage across the world. Generations of Filipinos who grew up with Jollibee’s unique take on American fast food continue to show their love for the Big Red Bee.
