Jollibee makes it to world's best fast-food chains list

Pinoy-favorite Jollibee was named among the best fast-food chains in the world by international online travel magazine Travel+Leisure.
 
“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,” the online magazine said as it described Jollibee.
 
“There are more than 700 locations across the country, serving everything from fried chicken and hamburgers to local favorites like palabok, rice noodles with meat sauce, shrimp, and hard-boiled egg,” it added.
 
Travel+Leisure also noted to its readers that the food to order in Jollibee is the spicy chickenjoy, a fried chicken coated with chili powder.
 
The travel magazine listed 20 fast-food chains around the world which it said are considered international favorites and the best chains to sample when on the go.
 
“For travelers, fast-food chains represent a convenient, inexpensive taste of how everyday residents in far-flung cities eat,” it said.
 
Aside from Jollibee, other Asian fast-food chains that made it to the world’s best list are Japan’s Ippudo, Taiwan’s Din Tai Fung, China’s Mr. Lee, Singapore’s Old Chang Kee, India’s Goli Vada Pav No. 1, and Saudi Arabia’s Albaik.
 
Russia’s Teremok, South Africa’s Nando’s, Canada’s St. Hubert, Australia’s Chocolateria San Churro, Puerto Rico’s El Meson Sandwiches, Brazil’s Giraffas, Barbados’ Chefette, Germany’s Nordsee, Denmark’s Jensen’s Bofhus, America’s Five Guys, France’s Maison Eric Kayser, England’s Pret a Manger, and Italy’s Rossopomodoro completed the list.
 
In Jollibee’s official website, the three-decade-old company said it dedicates its continuous success to the Filipinos.
 
“Jollibee is so well-loved everytime a new store opens, especially overseas, Filipinos always form long lines to the store. It is more than home for them. It is a stronghold of heritage and monument of Filipino victory,” it said.
