Today, the company has become the largest fast-food chain in the Philippines, with 440 outlets within the country and 30 stores overseas, employing about 40,000 people. Serving the requirements of the fast-food outlets are three commissaries (food processing plants). These are located in Pasig City, Cebu City and, the latest, in Canlubang Laguna. The 60,000 square meter plant in Canlubang Laguna currently operates 10 hours a day and employs about 200 staff. With expansion of the fast-food outlets proceeding at around 50 a year, the output of the commissary will also increase. When fully operational, in about one to two years’ time, it will have about 500 people working 16 to 24 hours a day, serving about 750 outlets. Power to the Jollibee Commissary at Canlubang Laguna is supplied by the Manila Electric Company, the local utility, through mostly overhead cables.
