Little Progress Made At The First Jollibee in Orange County

Ain't much progress goin' on at what's supposed to be the first outpost of the Filipino fast-food giant Jollibee in Orange County. I checked out the site recently, in what used to be Chris & Pitts BBQ restaurant at Euclid and Crescent in Anaheim, and saw that so far, the place has been gutted but not much else.

But there was one thing that the site revealed that I hadn't anticipated. Initially, it was thought that this would be a joint Jollibee and Red Ribbon site. Red Ribbon is the Filipino bakery that Jollibee bought out. But the banners reveal that it will actually be a threesome of Jollibee, Red Ribbon, and Chow King.

When this thing opens, it will be the Filipino equivalent of a Yum! Brands pile-up of a Taco Bell, KFC and Pizza Hut under one roof.

Don't have a clue what Jollibee is? Read more here.

Not sure it's wise to have redundant fried chicken from Chowking and Jolibee under the same roof. If I had to pick one or the other, I'll take the cayenne-dosed spicy crust from Chowking that'll leave your lips burning.

About 2.5 weeks ago, I came off the northbound 5 freeway onto Euclid Street and was also very surprised to see that the future Jollibee space was still a gutted shell.   I was like, what's up?? There are hungry Filipinophiles who don't want to drive to Cerritos or Chino Hills to try that peach mango pie LOL
