That guy is an entitled a-hole! He tries to shame the restaurant because he doesn't have the foresight to go to a super busy restaurant earlier in the day? Also he lied. Jolibee was 90 minutes from closing... or he (a media reporter) needs 30 minutes to post a Tweet. And why the heck is this guy taking a baby to a restaurant at 10:30pm?
He and his wife probably sprayed 2 litres of saliva making that stupid "pssssssht" sound at their kid to try to stop him from crying... (if I ever go to Jollibee I'll need noise cancelling headphones as I find that noise annoying)

As my landlord once said, it isn’t the people who complain who you have to worry about.

He went back a couple of days later:

^ Damn you for bumping this thread! LOL Jonesing for the spicy fried chicken right now because Game 3 of the NBA finals is about to start. Would absolutely love a bucket of chicken right now for the game. Had Jollibee's 5 times in the month of May. So far in June, I've had it zero times. :(

ate a Jollibee in Los Angeles in Season 1, episode 2 of Parts Unknown (filmed in 2012, aired in 2013). Full episode available on iTunes ($3).



He went again in 2015 (aired 2016), this time in Manila. S7E2, available on iTunes or cnn.com / cnn Go app (with a TV subscription).

Filipino fast food chain Jollibee to open 100 Canadian stores in next five years.

No more lineups! LoL!

TORONTO - Filipino fast-food chain Jollibee Food Corporation plans to open 100 stores in Canada within the next five years.
The company says it is eyeing the wave of new locations because the country is a key growth market and a big part of its North American expansion plans.
Jollibee attracted long lines of customers when it entered the Canadian market in 2016, opening two Winnipeg locations and a store in Scarborough, Ont. over the last three years.
It hopes to expand further in Ontario, but is also exploring stores in Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver.
Its aggressive expansion comes as international interest in Filipino food is rising and as Canada is attracting an increasing number of restaurants serving such food.
Jollibee's Filipino fare includes spaghetti in a sweet sauce, crispy chicken, burgers and peach mango pies.

LOL, Missisauga location is 2 years behind schedule.

If they continue their construction plans on filipino time 5 years actually means 10 years.

I just want a downtown Toronto restaurant because we all know T.O. is the centre of the universe.

100 in 5 years in Canada only? That's way too much and way too fast. There's a reason why ratio of Filipino restaurants to Filipino population is extremely low compared to nearly all other ethnic groups.

Drove by last Saturday around 7AM, and was surprised to still see people lining up. I seriously thought the hype would've died down by now lol
When given enough time, all threads on RFD can and will go off on a tangent.
