Jollibee, home of the world-famous Chickenjoy and the largest Asian food service company, celebrated today the grand opening of its 100th store in Vietnam in the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho with an event that brought boundless joy to huge crowds of customers who love the restaurant’s renowned range of dishes.

“Vietnam is home to our largest Jollibee restaurant network outside of the Philippines, and as such, this country will always hold a special place in Jollibee’s history,” said Ernesto Tanmantiong, chief executive officer of Jollibee Foods Corporation (JFC). “From our humble beginnings as a small ice cream parlor in the Philippines, it gives us joy that more and more people are coming to love Jollibee, helping us grow to become one of the biggest global food service companies to-date. This inspires us to stay true to our mission of spreading the joy of eating with everyone.”

To celebrate this milestone, Jollibee is giving away 100 buckets of its famous Chickenjoy along with other freebies at its stores across the country to bring even more joy to Vietnamese families. Various special treats and surprises also welcomed customers at the 100th store grand opening in the Can Tho store.

“Since opening the doors of our first store in Vietnam in 2005, it has been such an honour to see the nation embrace Jollibee,” said Dennis Flores, head of International Business at JFC. “For many, Jollibee is one of their first experiences of a memorable family bonding, whether by enjoying great food together or having a kiddie party. These, among many other moments, contribute to the boundless joy we have shared together with Vietnamese families over the years. As such, our business in Vietnam has been a core pillar of our international operations, and will continue to be one of our most important markets as we continue reaching more families around the world.”

Jollibee opened its first branch in Co.op Mart Xa Lo Hanoi in 2005 and has been expanding steadily since then. Now it is one of the top three largest restaurant chains in the country as it stays true to its commitment of bringing joy to customers.

“At Jollibee, we are dedicated to spreading the joy of eating to everyone. Now with 100 stores nationwide, we are even more ecstatic in bringing our unique brand of joy to families everywhere in the country—from the very south to the very north of Vietnam,” said Lam Hong Nguyen, general manager of Jollibee Vietnam.
