Jollibee is best chain fried chicken in the US: food website
The Filipino fast food chain has over 1,500 restaurants globally.
Filipino fast food, Jollibee’s, chickenjoy was declared the best-fried chicken in the US, according to Eater.com, a global food website.
It surpassed 15 other global brands in four rounds of contests.
“We are honored that our beloved Chickenjoy has been named as among the best-fried chicken in the US,” said Maribeth dela Cruz, Jollibee Group’s President for Philippine Brands, in North America, in a statement.
Commenting on the fast food’s victory, Eater.com’s Special Projects Editor, Lesley Suter, said, “The subtly seasoned skin is as tectonically crunchy as advertised if loosely attached in such a way as to be able to slide off a total hunk with one bite… But the real surprise here was the chicken itself: satisfyingly light, flavorful in a ‘tastes like chicken’ sort of way, and supremely moist.”
Jollibee has 83 locations all over North America and over 1,500 restaurants globally. It is eyeing opening 500 stores in the next five to seven years.
