Beloved Filipino restaurant chain best known for their delicious fried chicken, Jollibee, just opened a brand new location in Times Square at 1500 Broadway between 43rd and 44th St. It’s their second Manhattan location, the first of which is located at 609 Eighth Avenue only a couple blocks away (though it is temporarily closed at the moment).
This location will also have a bunch of exclusive new menu items like Mandarin Orange Crispy Chicken Salad, Baked Cheddar Mac ‘n Cheese, a Deluxe Cheeseburger, and freshly baked flakey Biscuits, in addition to their beloved classics. Hoping to become one of the world’s top-five restaurant chains, they are expanding their North American menu to “broaden appeal” with new burgers, sides and salads — only currently available at their Times Square location before rolling out across the region later this year.
“Opening our Times Square location, an undeniable global destination and retail hot spot, is truly a dream come true for our brand,” said Maribeth Dela Cruz, President, Jollibee Group North America, Philippine Brands. “It’s not only our newest location, but a powerful symbol of how far we’ve come and the unlimited potential we see for the future. We are committed to becoming one of the top global QSR restaurants and this opening marks a key milestone in that plan.
Our fans are the best in the world, and we invite those who haven’t tried Jollibee yet – from around the corner and around the world – to discover our joyful dining experience for themselves.
Aside from fried chicken, the restaurant serves other favorite Philippine dishes like their Jolly Spaghetti (sweet spaghetti with slices of ham and hot dogs), Burger Steaks (with a mushroom gravy on top), or Fiesta Noodles (noodles in a garlic sauce with shrimp and hard-boiled eggs). For dessert, they’re known for items like their Peach Mango Pie and Halo-Halo.
Beginning, Thursday, august 18, Jollibee Times Square is now open seven days a week from 9 p.m. – 12 a.m. daily.
There is also a Jollibee location in Woodside, Queens (at 6229 Roosevelt Avenue), and a new location in Jamaica (at 16102 Jamaica Avenue).
