Craving a pineapple burger or sweet spaghetti? If you’re in Manhattan this fall you’re in luck since Jollibee – the maker of such foods – is opening up an eater near the Port Authority Bus Terminal. While they have two franchises currently in the New York region, this will be the first one in Manhattan.
And if it’s as popular as its Queens location which created lines when it first opened back in 2009, Jollibee will be selling Chickenjoys in Manhattan for many years to come. And of course for the Filipinos (15% of those who are living in New York are in Manhattan) it is bound to be successful since they already claim it is a “taste of home.”
Then there are also the New Jersey Filipinos, many of whom commute for work in New York. They will most likely enjoy the tastes of Jollibee too.
