In lieu of the opening of the first Jollibee in Canada, speculations about where the next will open are going around. Jollibee on Ellice Ave. is the 35th branch in North America. However, we all know that one store will definitely not be enough to cater all the Filipinos, not to mention foreign fans of Jollibee, across the country. The big question is “Where will Jollibee open next?”
As announced at the press day earlier today, there will be two branches in Winnipeg, one on Ellice Ave. and one on McPhillips. There will also be two branches in Ontario, one in Missasauga and the other will be in Scarborough. It was also confirmed that there will be a Jollibee to open in Edmonton Mall or across the mall, the biggest mall in Canada. The Max’s Restaurant in the said city has always been full and with lines waiting outside. Will Jollibee be the next go-to place there? We know that’s for sure!
If you want to keep track, opening of the branches will happen in this order:
1. 1406 Ellice Ave., Winnipeg (December 15, 2016)
