Filipino fried chicken chain Jollibee set to open 50 stores across the UK

The famous Filipino chicken chain Jollibee is set to open 50 restaurant across the UK within the next six month.

The international fast food chain is joining big names like Popeyes and Wendy’s in its attempt to conquer the UK market.

Jollibee is renowned around the world for its crispy fried chicken, spaghetti and burgers all which have a tropical twist.

The fast food giant is opening stores in in Cardiff, Reading, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle in the next six months.

And, one restaurant has already opened in London’s Leicester Square.

Bestselling items include Chickenjoy – a famous crispy fried chicken made with a family-secret marinade, Jolly Spaghetti, made with a Filipino inspired sweet-style sauce, with tasty layers of cheese and hot dog slices and the Jollibee Chicken Burger.

All the store’s burgers are reasonably priced at just £3.99.

The fired chicken shop opened a small restaurant in Earl’s Court in 2018 and sparked a love of Jollibee in Brits.

There were 18 hour queues of over 1,000 people.

Fans said that the opening “brought them more joy than the birth of their children” and people even camped overnight.

They have since opened up in Leicester, Liverpool and Leeds, but their latest expansion plan is huge.

Meanwhile, American brand Popeyes is also opening its first restaurant in Britain.

And, Wendy’s is already here, check out their full UK menu before ordering.

Adam Parkinson, Business Head for Jollibee Europe told the Daily Mail: “We are very excited for Londoners and visitors from across the UK to come try our famous chicken burger.

“Don't let the price fool you – we are confident this is the best chicken burger in London.

“I could talk all day about the quality and care we put into each burger, but instead, we've set the price at £3.99 so our customers can easily taste the quality and decide for themselves.

“They won't be disappointed!”
