MANILA — A food and drink website in the United States included Jollibee as one of the favorite foreign food chains in the country.
The Daily Meal described Jollibee as “hugely popular in the Philippines, and has locations scattered around the US, largely in California. Aside from burgers, they offer fried chicken, spaghetti, noodles, and unique breakfast dishes like Spam, beef tenders, or sweet pork with rice.”
Aside from Jollibee, the following foreign chain restaurants also made the cut which include: Pie Face from Australia, Pret a Manger from Great Britain, Maoz from Amsterdam, Pollo Campero from Guatemala, Paris Baguette from South Korea, Tim Hortons from Canada, YO! Sushi from Great Britain, Nando’s Peri Peri from South Afrida, and Go Go Curry from Japan.
The Daily Meal has eight million unique visits every month. It is considered to be one of the fastest-growing content sites of all time. It features annual reports which include 101 Best Restaurants in America, 150 Best Bars in America, and 50 Most Powerful People in Food.
Jollibee first opened its US store in 1988 in Daly City, California. As of the moment, it has 30 outlets in various US states which include California, Nevada, New York, Washington, Hawaii, New Jersey, Texas, and Virginia.
The number of the fast-food chain’s international store network currently is at 111. It has branches not only in the US, but also in Vietnam, Brunei, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Singapore and Hong Kong.
