WEST COVINA, Calif. — Jollibee North America recently celebrated the opening of its new North American support headquarters in West Covina, Calif.
The 28,000-sq.-ft. space, housed in a 13-storey building, will serve as the centre of operations for Jollibee Foods Corporation’s (JFC) Jollibee, Chowking and Red Ribbon brands as they seek to aggressively expand across North America. The headquarters will house a current team of approximately 100 employees with room to grow as the businesses increasingly scale up their operations. The hybrid office space features both individual workstations and an open floor plan to provide a more conducive environment for collaboration between team members. Employees will also enjoy more social spaces with recreational rooms to play games and unwind.
Jollibee has been a main focus for the company’s North American, with a goal of having 250 Jollibee stores in North America by 2023.
“This new headquarters is extremely rewarding because it shows how far we have come as a company,” says Beth Dela Cruz, president of JFC Philippine Brands Group – North America. “I joined the team in North America when Jollibee was a small, struggling brand. There were years of uncertainties and we almost packed our bags. This new office space marks a milestone in our North American efforts as we look toward a bright future for the continued growth for the Jollibee, Chowking and Red Ribbon businesses.”
