Is It April Fool’s? The GTA’s First Jollibee Gets April 1st Opening Date

With the weekend over and no sign of an open Jolibee yet, hungry Torontonians and Jollibee fans were starting to get a little concerned.

About two weeks ago we were informed that Jollibee was set to open yesterday March 25, 2018. With the weekend over and no sign of an open Jolibee yet, hungry Torontonians and Jollibee fans were starting to get a little concerned.

We can now finally tell you, and hopefully, it’s not an April Fool’s joke Jollibee in Scarborough is slated to open April 1st, 2018.

While the location in Scarborough will be a first for Toronto, you can expect more to pop up in the near future.

“We can’t wait to open our doors to the amazing people of Toronto,” said Jose Miñana, Jollibee Foods Corporation’s (JFC) Group President for North America. “For us, nothing brings greater joy than to bring people together over great tasting food and happy moments. We are excited to bring to Scarborough the popular dishes that many now enjoy in different parts of the world.”

”At the same time, we look forward to bringing a familiar ‘taste of home’ to our countrymen in the Greater Toronto Area.  Many may not know that this area is home to the largest Filipino community in Canada!  And we won’t stop here – another location in Mississauga is in the pipeline for the year,” Miñana added.

The Canadian market plays a key role in the company’s North America expansion plans. Jollibee Scarborough is the company’s third store in Canada and the 40th store in North America — proof of the brand’s commitment to this region as a key growth market.

“As the most populous metropolitan area in Canada, we knew that we had to be in Toronto,” explains Maribeth dela CruzVice President and General Manager for JFC North America.  “Scarborough may be the 40th store we are opening in North America, but we can assure you that we look forward to each store opening like it is our first!”

As previously reported, a location slated to open inside the Seafood City Supermarket at the Heartland Town Centre in Mississauga is also in the works.
