NEW YORK — Among those who joined the celebratory Chickenjoy toast is New York Philharmonic chairman, Oscar Schafer.
“It’s absolutely delicious, much better than I thought, as they said on the way above my expectation, tasty yet not too greasy, delicious.”
“It goes to show that the taste of the Pinoy is global also na pang world class nga tayo,” says consulate general Claro Cristobal.
Jollibee Manhattan’s official opening was attended by some of New York’s bigwigs, including Smashburger founder and CEO Tom Ryan.
Jollibee acquired 85% of Denver-based “better burger” chain earlier this year – keeping Jollibee on course towards its goal to become one of the top five companies in the restaurant business in the world.
“I think there’s a great opportunity to bring great food and joy to the world through all the brands, so I think there’s a bright future I couldn’t think of a more empowered and enabled and energetic team to do it than the Jollibee, the JFC team,” says Ryan.
Jollibee is also spreading joy by giving back to local Boys and Girls club in cities where Jollibee opens its stores.
The Madison Square Boys and Girls Club received a $15,000 dollar gift from the world’s largest Asian food chain owned by Filipinos.
“We have 5 clubs all throughout Madison Square, and it’s definitely money that could be used and be helpful in all of our areas we are serving, all throughout New York City.”
Jollibee food corporation now has a network of more than 4,000 globally.
