Filipino fast food company Jollibee is now set to deliver its unique fast food menu nationwide via DoorDash. The popular chain, known for its fried chicken, spaghetti, and other comfort food favorites, will offer delivery from any of its franchise locations in North America (including Canada), and the company says that their packaging will include tamper-proof seals — a workaround as more and more restaurants doing delivery raise questions about the health and safety of the process. Jollibee’s American headquarters is in the San Gabriel Valley.
And in other news:
— Sweetfin has launched a new plant-based bowl and salad concept within its existing kitchens. The delivery-only option is called Plant Shop.
— There’s a virtual winemaker dinner going down tonight with Hirsch Vineyards and the folks from Marino restaurant on Melrose. The deal includes Maine lobster, a variety of wines, and dessert, and runs $175 for two, with a Zoom link sent to those who buy.
