Jollibee now serves crispy fried towels

Wazzup Pilipinas!?

Jollibee has ordered the temporary closure of its Bonifacio - Stop Over branch in BGC, Taguig City following the “fried towel” incident that made rounds online.

Why just one branch, when there's a possibility that the breaded towel could have come fromtheir commissary.

Jollibee chicken is already in marinated packs, blast frozen and delivered to branches ready for frying.  It’s not like they have batter lying around for a towel to fall into and fry it. 

I also used to work for Jollibee during my college days as a service crew. Basically, the batter and breading for chickens is not done at the store, unless their process has changed and if ever they did, it's easy to trace who did it. But how come it's taking Jollibee a long time to announce the result of their investigation. They don't need three days because every crew is monitored as per assigned task per day. Unless they are trying to paint this incident in a better picture. There must have been either negligence or fault or prank among their crew and they are being very careful of their announcement.

#FactCheck: This image originates from a Facebook meme page. McDonald’s never posted the advertisement on any of its digital platforms or on social media.  

I really want to know how the towel ended up being perfectly marinated, battered and fried.

That could have not happened at the store. Maybe because it's the pandemic and the company has changed its methods of food preparation to make the process more sustainable especially when they are trying to earn as much after having to close down some branches and decrease in sales due to lockdowns and Quarantines that resulted in less customers.

Green is the official color of their towels used for cleaning so there's a big chance that the towel.really got mixed with the battered chickens which are already pre- cut and packed upon reaching the branches.

Since the time of delivery was late at night, it could have been neglected since there very few crew during that shift.

Tom Sawyer's marketing team is taking advantage of the hype. I never knew there was a restaurant of such here in the country.  Mas kilala pa rin si Mcdonalds at Jollibee

That fried towel from jollibee has more implications. it didn't go near the assembly line by chance - ginagamit siya doon. for cleaning which means most probably madumi yon at the time of preparation, & the other chicken it was with got contaminated. So dapat lahat ng umorder ng ChickenJoy that day ay magreklamo. Magkusa na dapat ang Jollibee to reach out to all that got chickens that day

Whatever is the cause, we should be rallying in support of the employees (service crew) which are mostly overworked working students who still needs to go to school before or after their shift. I'm sure they don't want to lose their jobs as every peso counts for these students who are supporting themselves to keep themselves in school.

The fried towel incident requires investigation & reparation, but I don't think it's enough reason for anyone to doubt the standards of Jollibee as a whole just because of 1 incident. It's just Murphy's Law in play. There's no such thing as flawless service. On the other hand there could be more happening within their branches that needs to be scrutinized further.

Let us not think of Jollibee as a Filipino brand but it is owned by people of Chinese heritage. Just like how our country has been overran by the Chinese who setup their businesses in our country and became richer than Filipinos. The company is not something to be proud of. It is a sad reminder that foreigners have conquered our country and  made it their source of wealth. Why are they richer than the real natural-born Filipinos. What is wrong with Filipinos for patronizing foreign-owned companies instead of locally owned?
