Jollibee to Open Double Drive-Thru
Restaurant Jollibee is opening its first drive-thru with two lanes in Orlando, Florida, on January 18
Known for offering delicious food at great value, Jollibee specializes in all things fried chicken and is widely revered for its crispy, juicy, Chickenjoy fried chicken and delectable Chicken Sandwiches.
New Format for Fast Times
Jolibee is among the brands introducing new prototypes that cater to sustained demand for digital ordering and drive-thru convenience. Tropical Smoothie Cafeopened its first double-drive thru in October. Krystal opened a prototype designed with off prem in mind. In Tulsa, Oklahoma, Jack in the Box Inc. introduced its 1,350-square-foot, off-premise-only restaurant prototype. Last month, Panera Bread opened its New York Panera To Go,, solely offering Rapid Pick-Up and Delivery shelves where guests and delivery drivers can easily pick up orders.
"Opening a new prototype for the brand is always exciting," said Cheryl Fletcher, Chief Development Officer of Tropical Smoothie Cafe. "Our brand stays ahead of the curve with the latest wants and needs of both our guests and operators, and right now that is strongly linked to convenience. We want to be where our guests are, and our new formats help us achieve that."
Customers can pick up their orders to go or enjoy the convenience of the two-lane drive-thru service beginning on opening day. Dine-in, online ordering, and delivery will not be available on opening day, but will be made available in the coming weeks.
"Get ready Orlando! We are ready to serve up the most delicious fried chicken you have ever had," said Maribeth Dela Cruz, President, Jollibee North America. "From the minute you walk through our doors - or line up at our first-ever two-lane drive-thru - to your very last bite, we are determined to make every experience at Jollibee a joyful one for our guests."
