Jellibee: Filipino finds imitation of ‘Jollibee’ logo in China



The most famous and well-loved chain in the Philippines have been slowly expanding it’s branch around the world. Filipinos can’t get enough of Jollibee’s ‘langhap-sarap’ food, even foreigners can attest to it.

Many have tried to copy them, but nothing beats the original. But a Filipino caught surprise as he saw a familiar looking Philipine-based fast food sign, with a twist.

A certain Dennis T. sent a photo to When in Manila to share what he discovered in Yinchian City, Ningxia province Wanda Mall in China. According to him, “Jellibee” had the exact logo of the iconic Jollibee Bee.

Initially, one might assume that China is is ripping off a Filipino brand and that this very funny version of Jollibee might have with it some funny menu items like “Chicken Happy” or the famous “Palabak” as part of the menu. Though it turns out, “Jellibee” is really nothing more than absolute random signage use as fillers.

He, on the other hand, clarifies that “Jellibee” is really nothing more than an absolute random signage use as fillers. Random filler signs like these are common there, he note saying that as he already saw many other signs like Prada spelled as “Parda” and Puma spelled as “Pums” but with the exact logos as well.

So this “Jellibee” sign was probably just random signage, and that a fake (or real) Jollibee store was unlikely build in there. He also tells that these were filler signs on an empty space for rent, next to a real KFC at the mall.

Unsure why they couldn’t just use blank signs as fillers.

Jollibee is an American-style fast food restaurant with Filipino-influenced dishes specializing in burgers, spaghetti, chicken and some local Filipino dishes. Furthermore, Jollibee’s flagship product is its fried chicken which is “Chicken Joy.”

Meanwhile, it was discovered earlier that Baguio City in the Philippines has McDollibee – a combination of the two well-loved fast food giants in the country. McDollibee is a small barbecue stall located at the Baguio public market. The story is feature by Filipino TV program “Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho” in one of its episodes.
