MANILA - The Philippines' largest food operator Jollibee Food Corp. (JFC) inaugurated its first store in Macau Friday last week, the company said in a statement Tuesday.
The store's grand opening day was attended by Philippine officials, led by Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III, and Jollibee officials led by company founder and chairman Tony Tan Caktiong.
Jollibee said it is looking to open 50 stores in Macau and Hong Kong within 5 years as part of its global expansion. The Filipino fast-food firm is also slated to open its first store in London on Oct. 20, and in Manhattan and New York in a few months.
Aside from serving Filipinos overseas, Jollibee had said it has "seen success" in serving locals, especially in Vietnam and Brunei.
