Global restaurant sensation, Jollibee is bringing its signature brand of joy to Philadelphia and officially establishing the brand's first location in the state of Pennsylvania.
On September 2, 2022, Jollibee will swing open its doors at 7340 Bustleton Avenue and invites all hungry Philadelphians to come experience what sets Jollibee apart from its competitors – extraordinary menu offerings and friendly customer service. Widely revered for its delectable Chickenjoy bone-in fried chicken, Chicken Sandwiches, and iconic Peach Mango Pies, the brand is bounding towards its ambitious goal to become one of the world's top-five restaurant chains. As a testament to its delicious offerings, international food website Eater.com (Vox Media) recently named Jollibee "the best chain fried chicken in America" after its Chickenjoy bested 14 global brands in four rounds of contests.
For those planning to visit Jollibee's first location in Philadelphia, here's everything you need to know:
- Address: 7340 Bustleton Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19149
- Hours of Operation: 9AM – 11PM, seven days a week.
- How To Order: At this time, customers can dine at the restaurant beginning on opening day or pick up their orders to go. There will be drive-thru service, providing visitors the ultimate convenience.
"What a joy it is to finally be able to say we are open and ready to serve the people of Philadelphia," said Maribeth Dela Cruz, President, Jollibee North America. "We heard our fans loud and clear and know that this market has been waiting a long time for their very own Jollibee. The city of Philadelphia is ripe with American history, the location of many "firsts" for this country, and now home to the first Jollibee in Pennsylvania. Expanding to new markets across America and being welcomed in new cities is always an honor for our brand and Philadelphia is no exception."
Whether you have dined at Jollibee before or are trying it for the very first time, here is the rundown of "must-try" menu items:

- Spicy Chickenjoy: Another top seller is Spicy Chickenjoy, which is the fiery version of the classic Chickenjoy.
- Chicken Sandwich: This sandwich features a crispy, juicy chicken breast fillet, spread with umami mayo, and served on a toasted brioche bun.

- Spicy Chicken Sandwich: A spicy version of the original chicken sandwich features sriracha mayo and fresh jalapeños for added crunch and heat.
