The day prior to the grand opening of Jollibee on Ellice Ave., the Jollibee management held a media day for a sneak peek to VIPs and the press. The VIPs included Hon. Brian Pallister, Premier of Manitoba and prominent Pinoys in Winnipeg. Among the attendees were Jon Reyes and Flor Marcelino, who are the first Pinoy and Pinay elected Members of the Legislature in Manitoba.
It started with a blessing and prayer officiated by Fr. Rodrigo Lazarte. Jollibee officials conducted a ceremonial Chickenjoy toast involving a giant bucket of Chickenjoy. Corporate executives, VIPs, members of the press and Jollibee, himself, were there to partake in the ritual. Honorary Consul in Winnipeg, Ronald Opina, also delivered a speech about the arrival of Jollibee in Winnipeg.
