After Jollibee sold out its famed Chickenjoy and other delightful treats like the Jolly Spaghetti, Cheesy Yumburger, and the Jolly Sausage (that’s good ol’ Jolly Hotdog for us in the Philippines) in West Malaysia, the Bee has certainly been busy building its branches and spreading the Chickenjoy love all over the world.

Its latest entry? The capital of Edinburgh in Scotland, where Jollibee opened to much fanfare as it opened to the public Thursday, as evidenced by the long lines in photos taken on opening day.

“Overseas Filipinos and locals lined up before 7am to order their favorite Jollibee menu items including Chickenjoy, Jolly Spaghetti, and Yumburger,” Jollibee wrote on Facebook.

Aside from the classic Pinoy favorites, the Scottish joint has added some unique dishes on the menu such as an expanded chicken burger range, loaded fries, and a rice bowl and wrap.

Scotland’s first Jollibee opened on Princes Street, Edinburgh’s main shopping capital.

The Bee is set to open in Glasgow next.

About 53,000 Filipinos live in the United Kingdom as of 2021, most of whom we’re certain will make the trip to get a taste of home.
