The very first Jollibee in the midwest is a gigantic hit with the people in Skokie, Illinois as they willingly wait for hours to get a taste of the Filipino fast-food chain's spaghetti, fried chicken and 'Yum Burgers.
The Jollibee Skokie branch had to put up tents in order to accommodate the customers who are waiting in line, they even had to shut down the drive thru from time to time due to the incessant queue.
The fast food chain branch may not have expected the overwhelming demand of the Chicagoans, with hundreds of other fast food chains and Restaurants in Chicago that can provide both fried chicken and spaghetti. Who would have thought people would be so willing to sacrifice that much time for Jollibee's sweet and hot-dog filled spaghettis? Surely no one did!
Although, Filipino Americans in Chicago and immigrants prove that the wait isn't too great as one customer shared that he drove all the way from Minnesota, a 7 hour drive just to wait in line for the said fast food chain meal.
This is amazing news to the Filipino-based company, although unfortunately, bad news for those who hoped the craze will subside in order to get their turn without the hassle of waiting in line.
