Later in 1978, it was incorporated and expanded to 7 outlets with a plan to shift into a hamburger chain. With its distinct Filipino taste, consumer base drastically increased that in 1984, it hit the P500 Million sales mark and became one of the Top 500 Philippine Corporations. Barely after 5 years, in 1989, its sales soared to the P1 billion mark.  The rest was then history for this number 1 Filipino fast food chain.  Currently, it has almost 600 stores and is growing fast in the country and abroad as well.

    I want to start a Jolibee franchise in the Philippines. I am retiring soon and I want to have this source if income when I go back to my homeland. I’ve been looking around Jolibee’s in the Philippines and the chicken is great! Better than KFC I think, but what’s disappointing are the restrooms!! They’re all the same, no water, no toilet paper, smelly and disgusting! Do you corporate people even expect the facilities every now and then? I mean, 35+ mil Peso to franchise a business is no joke so it should also have a clean facility right?
