Jollibee foods corporation North America president Beth Dela Cruz said: “We cannot wait to welcome Jollibee fans who have long waited for their turn to finally have Jollibee in their area in addition to welcoming new foodies intrigued by our unique menu, which we fondly describe as a joyous mash-up of Western comfort food and Asian flavours.”
