"We are so excited to expand our presence in Queens, as it is home to such a beautiful, dynamic melting pot of people from all different backgrounds and cultures," said Maribeth Dela Cruz, Business Group Head, Honeybee Foods Corporation dba Jollibee. "While Jollibee was founded in the Philippines, we believe that great taste knows no boundaries; Queens County is one of America's most diverse populations, which makes it a perfect fit for exposing our brand to a broader audience who have yet to discover our special brand of joy."

Set in a vibrant district in southeast Queens, the Jamaica neighborhood offers a wide variety of independent businesses that reflect the diverse population that calls the area home. Queens is the largest and fastest growing of New York City's five boroughs and Jollibee will be positioned at the heart of this neighborhood in close proximity to York College and amongst the hundreds of businesses that serve the area. This store marks the brand's 59th U.S. location and joins its two existing New York City locations – Manhattan (609 8th Avenue) and Woodside, Queens (6229 Roosevelt Avenue). Jollibee store openings in the U.S. and around the world are known for drawing massive crowds, which was the case when Jollibee first opened its doors in Manhattan in 2018; despite the cold, rainy weather, hundreds of hungry fans waited up to 20 hours to be among the first in line on opening day.
