Edmonton, Alberta will be Jollibee's 5th location to open in Canada, as the chain progresses in its goal to open 100 branches in the country over the next five years and spread the joy of eating around the world. The chain recently opened other locations in Winnipeg and the Greater Toronto Area where locals lined up for hours.
After seeing their neighbors have their chance to taste and enjoy Jollibee, members of the Filipino community and all the local foodies in Edmonton can finally say "It's our turn!" as they'll soon get their hands on the brand's world-famous Jolly Crispy Chicken – delicately hand-breaded to be crispylicious on the outside, with a secret marinade that makes it juicylicious on the inside. Fans from across Alberta will also have a chance to taste its popular Jolly Spaghetti with its signature sweet-style sauce loaded with chunky slices of savory ham and hotdog, and Peach Mango Pie, craved for its delicious filling made with real Philippine mangoes enveloped by a thick flaky crust.
