Philippines-based Jollibee to open first AZ location in Chandler

This marks the company's 40th location in the US.

Philippines-based fast food restaurant Jollibee announced plans to open Arizona’s first location at 7 a.m. on Saturday, December 28 in Chandler.

The space at 2800 E. Germann Rd. previously housed Slim Chickens.

Jollibee has over 1,300 locations worldwide; the Chandler location will be Jollibee’s 40th location in the US.

The restaurant’s menu features fried chicken and burgers along with Filipino dishes such as sweet spaghetti with sliced hot dogs and palabok, a noodle dish covered in garlic sauce, crushed pork rinds, shrimp, and egg. For dessert, the menu features halo-halo and the restaurant’s signature Peach Mango Pie.

Jollibee has not yet announced a Tucson location; if that happens, we’ll let you know.
