It’s been a race to see who will get the Philippine-based Jollibee restaurant’s first location in Canada. Toronto and Winnipeg have been at the forefront of that battle.

It’s now confirmed that Jollibee’s is coming and will be located north of Polo Park at 1400 Ellice near the McDonald’s, Pita Pit and Starbucks.

Plans indicate that the most popular restaurant in the Philippines will be located in a building between Pita Pit and Mongo’s Grill.

The fully constructed 2791 sqft. building, which was originally rumored to become a bank with a drive-thru ATM, will now house the new restaurant.

The excitement this is likely to bring for many in the community can’t be understated.

It will be interesting to see if other people in the city take to the unique tastes of this restaurant.
