While American trademarks of fast food have taken a small grip in the Philippine market, many Filipinos have not climbed on board with the likes of McDonald’s, Burger King or KFC. Filipino-owned food franchises have seen marvelous accomplishment and financial development in the United States generating billions of dollars each year.
Following is a list of the top 5 successful Filipino based restaurant chains operating in the USA.
Jollibee – one of the largest Filipino-owned fast food chains
Jollibee Foods Corporation, broadly identified as Jollibee, is a fast-food restaurant chain situated in the Philippines. Since December 2007, Jollibee has developed into one of the major fast-food chains with 1,655 restaurants globally. Jollibee has become a fast growing restaurant in the United States earning over $ 1 billion. Jollibee’s success is derived from multiple aspects, such as:
- Client focus: The market is so vibrant and fast-changing, so they do a lot of investigating. When Jollibee was first starting out, they had little research finances and directly asked clients their desires and requirements.
- Culture: Jollibee makes sure the entire organization shares their apparitions and ethics, meaning all clients are a part of that. Their business values are superiority, a spirit of fun, modesty to discover and take note, honesty, frugality, reverence for the individual, and fellowship. Any person who is not a fit to all that, is removed from the business. They consider their staff to be fully engaged and dedicated.
- Spirit, family and fun: Among Jollibee’s core ethics are harmony and team work. They now have more than 40,000 workers; approximately 4,000 who are supervisors. If you take into account the other brands, they have in excess of 60,000 workers.
