Jollibee welcomes new Chicago branch with a chicken toast
At long last! Langhap Sarap goodness has come to Chicago!
Suburban Skokie became the center of Chicago’s Filipino community on Thursday morning, as local officials, corporate officers and media from abroad came into the Midwest’s first Jollibee site, the Chicago Eater reported. Langhap Sarap in Chicago finally opens Friday, 7 A.M.
Prior to its opening, Jollibee officials conducted a ceremony involving a giant bucket of fried chicken. Corporate executives spearheaded what they refer as the Chickenjoy toast, where they raise a piece of fried chicken like a glass of champagne and offer a toast to the triumph of the popular fast-food chain. Of course, appearance of Jollibee was an inimitable part of the ritual.
Locals can enjoy their own buckets of Chicken Joy in the new outlet, although in smaller portions, from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. beginning Friday.
The branch of Jollibee in Skokie is the restaurant’s 34th location in the US and goes before the Jollibee’s next outlet in Manhattan, the report said.
