Fastfood giant Jollibee Foods Corp. (JFC) is accelerating its local and foreign store expansion next year that will be supported by a record PPH6 billion (USD134.7 million) capital spending, a top company executive said.
“Normally, we would grow the store opening by at least 10 percent. If we open 200 this year, you add 20 stores so it will be 220 (branches next year),” JFC chief financial officer Ysmael Baysa told reporters said.
Jollibee Foods Corp. (JFC), the Philippine largest food service company, reported a 24.7 percent jump in net income to PHP1.1 billion (USD25.1 million) in the first quarter of 2014 from the PHP881 million the company had in the same period last year.
In a disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange, Jollibee said the profit growth was driven by strong same store sales, both in the Philippines and abroad. Revenues rose 15.2 percent to PHP20.9 billion from PHP18.2 billion in the first quarter of 2013.
