Jollibee Foods Corp. (JFC) opened the first branch of its Jollibee fastfood chain in the Macau Special Administrative Region last week, as it continues to ramp up its global expansion. “Macau is home to over 40,000 Filipinos and we are only too happy to bring them ‘a taste of home,’ as well as share Jollibee’s signature brand of great tasting food and friendly service with the warm people of Macau,” Ernesto Tanmantiong, JFC chief executive officer, was quoted as saying during the store opening. JFC said it employed overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) and Filipino permanent residents in Macau for the store.
