WEST COVINA, Calif., May 4, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Jollibee, the global restaurant brand famous for its Chickenjoy fried chicken, crispy and juicy Chicken Sandwiches, and iconic Peach Mango Pie dessert, will open its first location in Fairfield, California, on Friday, May 5, 2023. The new Jollibee will be located at 1450 Travis Boulevard in the Solano Town Center retail complex, the area’s prime shopping destination situated just east of the Interstate 80 freeway that features more than 130 shops and restaurants. Recognized as one of “America’s Hottest Brands 2022” by leading industry publication, Ad Age, the opening marks Jollibee’s 30th location in The Golden State and its 65th in the U.S., as the brand continues to grow its fanbase across North America.

As personified in its hard-working and happy “jolly bee” mascot, Jollibee is passionate about delivering great-tasting food at a great value that is always served with joy. As a testament to its delicious menu line-up, international food website Eater.com recently named Jollibee “the best chain fried chicken in America.” For curious newcomers to the brand, here are the most popular menu items that have fans lining up around the block when a new Jollibee comes to town:
- Chickenjoy: Jollibee’s signature fried chicken. Each piece is delicately hand-breaded to be crispy on the outside, cooked with precision to be juicy on the inside, and marinated to the bone for next-level flavor. For many fans, dipping each bite into Jollibee’s silky gravy is a must.
- Chicken Sandwich: This sandwich features a crispy, juicy chicken breast fillet, spread with umami mayo, and served on a toasted brioche bun. Find out why this newly launched sandwich has been lauded for its intense crunch and discover how the umami flavor profile and signature Jollibee seasonings meld together to create a perfect chicken sandwich offering.
- Spicy Chicken Sandwich: A spicy version of the original chicken sandwich features sriracha mayo and fresh jalapeños for added crunch and heat.
- Peach Mango Pie: Made with peaches and real Philippine mangoes tucked in a warm, light and crispy crust, one first-time customer even described it as “life-changing”.
At the new Fairfield – Solano Town Center location, customers will not only be able to enjoy Jollibee’s crispy and juicy fried chicken offerings, but also try out several new menu additions, including:
- Baked Cheddar Mac ‘n Cheese: A special blend of macaroni and cheese topped with shredded cheddar and baked in-house to achieve the ultimate creamy, cheesy accompaniment.
- Biscuits: Freshly baked, warm, and flakey.
And, while supplies last, customers can treat themselves to Jollibee’s new limited-time offering – Coconut Pineapple Pie – which features real pieces of coconut and pineapple enveloped in a buttery, flaky crust. The delicious combination of the two tropical flavors creates a sweet and refreshing taste that is synonymous with an inviting island escape.
