Jollibee at Lucky Plaza is the brand's top performing outlet worldwide

The Jollibee outlet at Lucky Plaza is the brand's top performing outlet worldwide. The Phillipines-based popular fast food chain, famous for its fried chicken dish Chickenjoy, has over 800 outlets across the globe and opened its first Singapore outlet on the sixth floor of Lucky Plaza on March 12 this year.

Jollibee's vice president for international operations Dennis M. Flores told The Straits Times that the Lucky Plaza outlet attracted 35,000 customers in its first week but did not elaborate on customer numbers so far. Jollibee is looking to open another outlet by the end of the year at either Tampines or Causeway Point in Woodlands, he added.

Jollibee formally marked its first milestone store in Singapore on Wednesday with a celebration officiated by its global chief executive and chairman Tony Tan Caktiong. Among the invited guests were former president of Singapore, Mr S R Nathan, and Temasek Holdings' chief executive and executive director Ho Ching.

Mrs Grace Tan Caktiong, president of Jollibee Group Foundation, also presented a cheque for $8,888 to The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund at the event. A surprise birthday celebration was also thrown for Mr Nathan, who turned 89 on Wednesday.
