Jollibee one of world’s best fast food chains

MANILA, Philippines – Homegrown quick-service restaurant Jollibee is one of the best fast food chains in the world, according to an influential American magazine.
The restaurant, known for its fried chicken, spaghetti and burgers, is one of the dining spots featured in Travel + Leisure’s “Best fast food chains in the world” feature, which is part of the magazine’s May 2012 issue.
“Fast food gets a Filipino twist at this quick-serve chain, which is so beloved that its mascots star in their own children’s television show,” author Jamie Feldmar wrote in the Travel + Leisure article.
“There are more than 700 locations across the country, serving anything from fried chicken and hamburgers to local favorites like palabok, rice noodles with meat sauce, shrimp and hard-boiled egg.”
The magazine also suggested what first-timers should order at the fast food chain. “Spicy Chickenjoy, fried chicken coated with chili powder.”
Jollibee has been a household name in the Philippines for its Filipino-style fast food fare. What started as a two-branch ice cream parlor in 1975 is now considered the largest and most popular fast food chain in the country.
Aside from the United States, Jollibee has branches in Brunei, Hong Kong and Saudi Arabia, among others.
