Photo Care of Jollibee

Jolibee is a Filipino fast-food chain that has been spreading across the world with locations in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and the US.  Canadians got their first taste of the delicious food when two Winnipeg locations opened last year.  Following a successful Canadian launch, the franchise is expanding, and the first location in the Greater Toronto Area is opening next week.

Doors open to the new Jollibee location at 15 William Kitchen Road, Scarborough, Ontario at 7 am on April 1.  And, yes, we hope it is not an April Fools’ Day joke too.

While you can expect the new restaurant to be pretty busy for the first day, it may be worth getting down there early for a chance to get some free stuff.  The first 300 customers can expect to receive a free collectable plush toy, Jollibee is also offering a free one-year supply of ChickenJoy to the first customer through the doors.  There will also be other free giveaways happening throughout the day.

Jolibee is planning on opening another location in Mississauga later this year before expanding to markets in Edmonton and Vancouver.
