Jollibee has made a name for itself with its spaghetti and fried chicken combos that are an absolute hit with Singaporeans.
Its outlets that are located islandwide can often be seen packed with customers and sporting long queues.
Unfortunately, despite all its popularity, one of them has just closed its doors.
Lasted for Four Years
From 13 June onwards, Jollibee at Jurong East MRT Station will be no more.
The Filipino fast food chain announced on 12 June that they would be closing the outlet, but did not specify what the reason was.
The Jurong East outlet enjoyed a strategic location on the ground floor of the MRT station, under the concourse and right next to the Kopi food court.
It first opened on 18 July 2018, making its operations a total of four years.
Customers are told to keep their eye out for future store openings.
Currently, the company’s Facebook page lists 13 other outlets in Singapore, with the next nearest one at Jurong Point in Boon Lay.
Speculation on Reason for Closure
According to a netizen, construction works are ongoing in the area, making the closure a reasonable one. Another noted that many shops there had relocated due to the works for the Jurong Region Line.
According to Singapore Atrium Sale, the food court next door also closed on 31 May, so the premises might have needed to be shut down for the construction works.
Others responded to the news by asking Jollibee to open an outlet in their estates, which ranged from Choa Chu Kang to Pasir Ris and Sengkang.

Jollibee opened its first store in Singapore in March 2013.
Since then, it has brought its iconic Chickenjoy, Yumburgers and savoury spaghetti to Singaporeans who took to it with great satisfaction.
However, the pandemic saw Jollibee being hit severely in 2020. As a result, Jollibee closed 255 stores worldwide due to its losses of $336 million.
Despite the setback, Jollibee has made a strong comeback in the past two years.
The fast food chain has expanded significantly from its Lucky Plaza outlets, entering heartland areas like Woodlands, Punggol, and Serangoon.
Late last year, Jollibee Foods Corporation (JFC) acquired a 51 per cent stake in Taiwanese firm, Milkshop International Co. Ltd., which owns Milksha and Milkshop.
Before that, it took over Hong Kong dim sum chain Tim Ho Wan.
