Originally an ice cream shop in the Philippines that also served hot meals, Jollibee now sits as one of the fastest-growing Asian fast food restaurants in the world.
With 81 locations across North America, the chain recently made a name for itself after a rough start trying to establish itself when it first came to the U.S. in 1998. Last year, Jollibee's entrance into the notorious chicken sandwich wars helped cement the brand's place among competitors like Popeyes and McDonald's. But unlike these rivals, Jollibee offers a unique combination of flavors. The "Chickenjoy" blends crispy fried chicken with traditional adobo rice and the "Jolly Spaghetti" tops pasta with a hot dog, ham and a sweet tomato ketchup sauce.
