QSR chicken chain to feed hospital workers with 5,000 meals
Quick-serve chicken chain Jollibee began offering delivery during the current health crisis while its restaurants remain closed for dine-in. Its stores in the United States and Canada, which currently offer drive-thru, call-and-pick-up, as well as traditional takeout orders, began participating in the national delivery launch with DoorDash.
Stores in Arizona, California, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Texas, Washington, Virginia, and Manitoba and Ontario, Canada participate in the delivery program. Through DoorDash and takeout, Jollibee offers its menu to customers a-la-carte, or in build-your-own-meal and family-pack options. Sister brands Chowking and Red Ribbon also began delivery service.
In addition, Jollibee is helping support frontline workers donating 5,000 meals to healthcare workers at U.S. hospitals. The brand announced delivering “food, love and encouragement to those on the frontlines.” Each donated care package will include a “Note of Joy” from Jollibee customers across the country, showing their appreciation for hospital workers’ dedication during the COVID-19 outbreak.
“We’re looking forward to providing more than just a meal, but the appreciation from people all over the country for everything those on the front lines are doing, day and night, for our communities,” said Maribeth Dela Cruz, president of JFC North America, Philippine Brands.
The Philippines’ largest QSR chain has 240 international locations. These are spread out across the United States, Canada, Hong Kong, Macau, Brunei, Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait, Bahrain, Italy, and in the United Kingdom. Jollibee opened its 40th U.S. store in December.
