Jollibee in Vancouver opens February 2022

This is not a drill! Jollibee is almost here in Vancouver! Yes! We don't have to drive all the way to Edmonton or Seattle for our Jollibee fix. You just have to take transit or drive to Downtown Vancouver core to get Chicken Joy and Peach Mango Pie.

Where will the Jollibee be in Vancouver?

The location is going to be at 833 Granville Street, Vancouver, BC.

Why is Jollibee so popular?

My mom and I had this discussion. She said she doesn't understand why we're (me and my siblings) so excited about Jollibee - it's not even that good. The nerve! Anyway, my sister and I explained that more than the food we love (i.e. Peach Mango Pie), Jollibee is our childhood. It's what we grew up with. It's a symbol of being Filipino. It's a reminder of home.

What to get from Jollibee?

I would imagine the line would be long, but I doubt it would be as long as Winnipeg or Edmonton, where there's just more Filipino. You should get the Peach Mango Pie. My sister's Canadian boyfriend is obsessed with it as much as we are. I would also recommend the Jolly Spaghetti with little hotdogs and sweet sauce. There's a combo of Jolly Spaghetti and Chicken Joy - that'll be my order. If I'm feeling greedy, I'll also order the Palabok (Filipino noodle dish) with fries - random.

Honestly, my favourite dishes from Jollibee are the breakfast meals.

When will it open?

Hopefully, soon! Although, understandably, the pandemic would delay things.

For now, I'm ecstatic to have Jollibee in Vancouver and at Downtown at that. It's one bus from my place, and when we're back in the office, I'll order a box for all my colleagues to try Peach Mango Pie.


May 2021 Update

We live near South Granville, but don't go to Downtown Vancouver often. However, during the last week of May, hubby took a bus going through Downtown and was able to take a photo of the Jollibee location.

This is the latest gossip (haha!) that I saw in the Filipino Facebook group in BC. The Jollibee in Downtown Vancouver will open in February 2022. This is the screenshot on Google Maps for the location with the updated pictures uploaded February 4, 2022.
