JolliTowel: JOLLIBEE Temporarily SHUT DOWN BGC Branch After ‘Fried Towel’ Issue
Jollibee Towel Issue, MANILA—Jollibee Foods Corp. said it will be closing down one of its branches in BGC following an incident that has gone viral online.
The tweet, which has since been deleted, has garnered over 3,500 retweets and 6,600 likes.
In a statement released early Thursday, Jollibee said it will close down its Jollibee Bonifacio-Stop Over branch because of the towel issue for 3 days to review its compliance with the company’s procedures, as well as to retrain its personnel.
“Jollibee has carefully developed and complied with food preparation systems to ensure that we deliver excellent quality products and customer satisfaction,” the company said, adding that it is already conducting a thorough investigation on the incident.
A Facebook post by user Alique Perez early Wednesday made the rounds online. According to Perez, she ordered fried chicken via delivery for her family.
