Jollibee has become an integral part of Pinoy culture and true to this; I am passing the tradition to my son. At 18 months, he recognizes Jollibee. Whether it’s on a TV ad, table napkin, plastic bag, and even on a giveaway balloon which was held by a little girl we passed along the Supermarket aisle. Rohan recognizes Jollibee anywhere.
The other day I was privileged to be invited to the ribbon cutting of the newest branch of the country’s favorite fast food chain – Jollibee SM City GenSan.
The ribbon cutting was spearheaded by the city’s lovely mayor Darlene Antonino-Custodio. A short and sweet program followed and the crowd went wild as the Jollitown gang – Jollibee, Yum, Popo, Hetty and Twirlie – performed a very special number. But the crowded went berserk when the People’s Champ and Sarangani Congressman Manny Pacquiao made his way through the melee.
A symbolic gesture between the People’s Champ and another Jollibee favorite, Champ, was made. Truly an act that will go down in history.
Jollibee’s new branch at SM City GenSan is the ninth in the city and the eleventh in SOCSKSARGEN. This branch is also the sixth company-owned restaurant in GenSan. The company’s expansion is a simple testament to the love of all Pinoy, young and old, to Chicken Joy, Jollibee Spaghetti, and my son’s favorite, Jollibee French Fries.
Jollibee SM City GenSan is open to cater to patrons during mall hours and offers free Wi-Fi too! Rest assured that every diner is treated with the best in langhap sarap goodness and customer service lead by their restaurant manager Mr. Alex Requieron and assistant manager Ms. Janice Castro.
My family has a new place to hang out when in SM, that’s for sure. Who can resist Jollibee’s langhap sarap meals, anyways?
