Jollibee to open first Japan branch in 2019

After making headway in Vietnam, the fast food behemoth is set to launch its first store in Japan in two years.

“We were told that Japan is welcoming Filipinos now, particularly caregivers, as it has about 45 million citizens that need special care. So they’ll need caregivers and nurses to work there. I was told that the government is training Filipino nurses to bring them to Japan,” JFC founder and Chairman Tony Tan Caktiong said.

“If that happens, Japan can be a big market for the Jollibee brand,” Tan Caktiong added.

Jollibee Foods Corp. (JFC) has set a target of generating a 50:50 ratio in sales contribution from international and local stores in the next five years. Most of the Jollibee stores overseas also target the overseas Filipino community.
