BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KERO) – Bakersfield is getting another addition to the fast food landscape. Jollibee is opening a location at Carl’s Jr.’s former location at 5520 Stockdale Hwy.
Jollibee, a Filipino chain of fast food restaurants, has locations in Southeast Asia, the Middle East, East Asia, North America, and Europe. They have 37 restaurants in the United States, the first one opening in Daly City, California in 1998.
Jollibee is best known for its Chickenjoy, which is described on its website as “finely hand-breaded to be crispy on the outside with a secret marinade that makes it juicy on the inside”.
The restaurant also serves spaghetti, traditional Filipino noodle dishes, burgers, and more.
According to Giana Olivieri with the Olivieri Commercial Group, construction began earlier this month. However, no opening date has yet been set.
