Jollibee opens first store in London

FILIPINO-owned fast food giant Jollibee Foods Corporation will open its first store in London, England on October 20.

Jollibee gave a sneak peek of the store, which is located at Earl's Court, to key Philippine officials who are in London to conduct the Philippine Economic Briefing 2018.

Among the officials who visited the store was Socioeconomic Planning Secretary and National Economic and Development Authority (Neda) Director General Ernesto Pernia.

The Department of Trade and Industry, in a Twitter post, showed Trade Secretary Ramon Lopez and the other economic officials enjoying the first batch of Chicken Joy and Yum Burger in London.

Other Philippine officials who got first look at the store were Budget Secretary Benjamin Diokno, Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat and Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III, among others.

Jollibee's first European branch is at Piazza Diaz 7 in Milan, Italy. The fast food giant has over 1,000 Jollibee stores, more than 100 of which are overseas. The company also operates Chowking, Burger King, Red Ribbon, Greenwich and Mang Inasal. (MVI/SunStar Philippines)
