Since its first location opened, Jollibee, the beloved Philippine fast-food joint, has been making waves in Toronto and the GTA with its ambitious expansion plans. The largest comfort food chain in the Philippines has finally arrived in downtown Toronto, and people are ecstatic. The new outpost, located at 334 Yonge Street, is the first one in downtown Toronto and is already serving up fan favorites like their crispy chicken, spaghetti, peach-mango pie, and other delicious items on the menu. This is just the latest of Jollibee's massive plans to expand rapidly in the Canadian market. There are currently 17 operational Jollibee locations across Canada, with other outposts in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta.
The first North American branch opened in California in 1998 and now operates 64 stores across the continent and more than 240 stores worldwide. With Toronto still closed for the next few weeks (at least), the new Jollibee store will operate as a take-out and delivery-only place for the time being, but will welcome customers to eat at the restaurant when restrictions allow. The new location is open daily from 10 am and can be found inside the mall at 4646 Yonge Street.
