Jolibee Mississauga supposed to open inside seafood city, but looklike its the space problem that why they delay it. Maybe they will contruct their own building within that Plaza.
I doubt that, but yeah I do see your point. If they were to open the Mississauga location first, maybe that store would not be able to handle the crowds.

I believe the tents are gone so the volume has dropped. Passed by a week ago and no tent. Hmm.

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.
LOL, highly doubtful. I can see 25-30. Majority of pinos like all minorities tend to hang out in big cities. 10 provinces, say 2 large cities per province outside of ontario with 2-3 stores in each. Obviously they have to review the stats ever 6 mos before expanding beyond that.

...but as you've noticed, they're not opening up in Filipino neighborhoods. It's more of a "If you build it they will come..." way of thinking rather than a "build where they are..." way of thinking.

Maybe they will piss off another successful Nando by moving next door and ruining their business with the location hijack. LOL

I trust those who say that the spicy chicken is well worth the wait. I'm taking their word for it because I still don't do spicy.
Their mango pie is also heavenly. No one else sells them.

Can anyone else confirm this? I plan to go during the weekday lunch hour.

Personally speaking, there isn't a food in this world that is worth spending my finite time on this planet lining up for. But that's just me.

Never say such a thing without trying Jollibee food first.
I bet if those jollibee mango pies could be sold (frozen) at walmart there'd be a much shorter line at the actual restaurant possibly...

It isn't as crazy as before but there will still be a short line

The spicy is a little bit better than Popeyes, but not enough to make me go out of my way to get it or to lineup. Mango pie is good but not great IMO

The Mango pie was great for me. It's the main reason why I have any desire to return to Jollibee, if ever again.

Yeah but its not like that scarborough location is in a middle of nowhere. Its easily accessible using public transit and by car. Anyone from the GTA can get there within an hour.

100 stores is not realistic at all. Face With Tears Of Joy

Lets say 2 in Toronto, 2 in Peel(Sauga, Brampton). Put 1 in Niagara, Montreal, Quebec, Edmonton, Vancouver. That should cover most of the filipino population in Canada.
