Philippines-based Jollibee North America opened its North American headquarters in West Covina, Calif.
The 28,000-square-foot headquarters complex in the 13-story building will serve as the center of operations for Jollibee, Chowking and Red Ribbon.
The building will house a team of around 100 employees, with room to grow as the businesses scale up their operations.
"This new headquarters is extremely rewarding because it shows how far we have come as a company," says Beth Dela Cruz, president of JFC Philippine Brands Group - North America. "I joined the team in North America when Jollibee was a small, struggling brand. There were years of uncertainties, and we almost packed our bags. This new office space marks a milestone in our North American efforts, as we look toward a bright future for the continued growth for the Jollibee, Chowking and Red Ribbon businesses."
The hybrid office space features both individual workstations and an open floor plan to provide a more conducive environment for collaboration between team members. In addition to unobstructed 360-degree views of Los Angeles, employees will also enjoy more social spaces with recreational rooms to play games and unwind. Other amenities include better parking along with a more modern office design that includes digitally enabled facilities.
"With our new headquarters, we are focused on attracting and retaining top talents," says Dela Cruz. "Our office both enables team member productivity and eases the stress of daily work."
