For the past few days, the word “Jollibee” has been on everyone’s lips. Why? Because the Scarborough location has opened and is attracting throngs of people willing to wait five (or more) hours for the quick service resto’s beloved Filipino offerings.
Built it by Design, a Mississauga based contracting company, told insauga.com that it officially launched construction last week and expects to complete the project by the end of June at Heartland Town Centre just a two second drive from Brampton.
Build it by Design says it usually takes a week or two to open after all the work is completed.
“We have been getting many calls to our office due to our signage being on the window and people wanting to know when it will open,” a company representative told insauga.com.
So it looks like you’ll get to sink your teeth into a burger by summertime.

The soon-to-open Jollibee restaurant, a popular fast food brand from The Philippines, will take shape inside the recently opened Seafood City Supermarket in Heartland Town Centre.
The brand began hiring for the new store back in 2017.
The brand offers a range of Asian and North American staples, boasting traditional fast-food hamburgers, spaghetti (which is definitely an unusual find at quick-service chains), fried chicken, garlic pepper beef, spring rolls, corned beef breakfast dishes and more.
As for Seafood City, that was exciting opening in and of itself.
For those who don’t know, Seafood City is a Filipino supermarket with over 20 locations in the U.S. The brand specializes in Filipino food and products and Mississauga just recently became home to the chain’s first Canadian location.
The store officially opened its doors in September.
Jollibee will joint a host of other quick-service spots inside the supermarket, including Grill City, Noodle Street, Crispy Town and Valerio’s Bake Shop.
We’ll keep you updated on more Jollibee opening details as they become available.
