Filipino Fried Rooster Favourite Jollibee will open its latest location in Saskatoon earlier than the tip of 2020

The hugely popular Filipino fried chicken chain Jollibee will open a third location in Saskatoon before the end of 2020.

As Eater reported a year ago, the newest location will be near Westchase at 13347 Westheimer Road just outside the Eldridge Parkway. It will be added to the chain’s other Saskatoon stores, including one in Missouri City that opened in June and a long-standing location on South Main Street.

Jollibee is the largest fast food chain in the Philippines and is known for its particularly crispy fried chicken, which is served with adobo rice. Mashed potatoes and corn as well as the “funny spaghetti”, a dish that is served with grated cheese and sweet tomato sauce. His “Chickenjoy” often outperforms chains like KFC and Church’s in taste tests, and hour-long lines regularly form when new locations open in the US.

The newest store in Saskatoon is part of a wider expansion for Texas and the US. These include a restaurant in the Plano suburb of Dallas, which opened in August, and the first location in central Texas, soon to open in San Antonio. The restaurant’s menu can only be delivered via Doordash.

No word yet about an exact opening location for Westheimer, but probably in the next few weeks.
