Say hello to the first Jollibee branch in Spain, which is located at Puerta del Sol in the vibrant city of Madrid. Jollibee Madrid will open at Calle del Arenal, one of the busiest pedestrian streets and shopping destinations in the Spanish capital.
Just in time for the launch of its store in Madrid, the fast-food giant has released official images of the new restaurant’s stylish interiors — and my, do they look like no other Jollibee we’ve seen before. Check out the photographs below.
Jollibee gets a “tropical twist” in Madrid
Jollibee Madrid has a dining capacity for 180 guests and a double-height dining hall with a full-size palm tree. Not to be ignored are the cosy-looking purple couches and aesthetically pleasing lighting fixtures at the restaurant, which offer a stylish departure to the fast-food chain we know and love.
If this Jollibee branch looks a little different than what we’re used to, this is because the store design for Jollibee Madrid was envisioned with European customers in mind as well.
Guests will also want to keep an eye out for hidden gems of Pinoy culture distributed throughout the space, like the colourful jeepney sign pictured above.
To protect guests and restaurant employees, the branch also features outdoor seating, a designated take-out area, hand-washing stations, and digital kiosks for safe transactions.
Jollibee Madrid is scheduled to open on 23 Sep 2021.
