Jollibee, home of the famous Chickenjoy, opened its 1000th store in the Philippines on Tuesday (July 4) at the BGC Triangle Drive in Taguig City.
The fast food giant hosted a store blessing ceremony attended by business partners, government officials and other special guests. Jollibee Foods Corporation (JFC) Chairman Tony Tan Caktiong, JFC Chief Executive Officer Ernesto Tanmantiong, JFC Philippines Country Head Joseph Tanbuntiong and Chief Global Real Estate Officer William Tan Untiong unveiled the 1,000th store commemorative marker.
This was followed by the ribbon-cutting ceremony and official store blessing led by Jollibee Philippines President JJ Alano with Taguig City Mayor Lani Cayetano, Department of Trade and Industry Undersecretary Nora Terrado, Ms. Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach and Jollibee BGC Triangle Drive Restaurant Manager Sharon Morendo.
Culminating the program was the “Chickenjoy Toast” led by Tanmantiong.
The milestone branch is the sixth Jollibee store in Bonifacio Global City and the 16th in Taguig. It has a seating capacity of 350 and features the latest modern tropical design concept with two spacious and beautifully-decorated party areas.
Creative murals also give the milestone store an engaging and contemporary feel, starting with a 27-foot long drive-thru Jollibee Pinoy Art containing images of the Philippine Eagle, the carabao, and the sarimanok grabbing some Chickenjoy to bring home.
