In the Philippines you will find a Jollibee on every street corner. And now they are expanding all over the world to wherever there is a high population density of Filipino families.
With their offerings of burgers and fried chicken meals that have a distinct Filipino twist, they bring to Qatar a real taste of home to thousands of overseas workers and their families from the Philippines.
These days Mc Donald’s and KFC have started to appear everywhere in the Philippines as well. But Jollibee is still by far the favorite taste for Filipinos. As demonstrated in the above image where there is a big cue for Jollibee and just one person standing at Mc Donald’s.
Personally I am not a Jollibee fan. I prefer Mc Donald’s burgers and KFC chicken. I can eat Jollibee, but if there is an alternative close by, I will take the alternative. However Filipinos can’t get enough of Jollibee and they will walk past other brands to go to Jollibee.
I think this is the 3rd branch to open in Doha, and I’m sure it will do very well indeed. The food court in Dar Al Salam is always very busy, and Jollibee is a great addition for those seeking a taste of home.
