Jollibee Kapolei Day 1: Grand Opening. Today is the grand opening of Jollibee USA newest location in Hawaii on the island of O’ahu. It is located within the Ka Makana Ali’i Shopping Center area in Kapolei. I have been checking out this location for a very long time after passing through the construction of the new store many times while visiting Ka Makana Ali’i for the past few months just in admiration and awe of the beauty. It is now finally open! Even when the new Ka Makana Ali’i shopping center just opened they were announcing that Jollibee will be coming soon to the new mall! It is towards the back of the mall right near Macy’s, Wendy’s, and before 24 hour fitness. Anyways, I did a Facebook vote post on Facebook to see if I should do another 100 days of happiness at the new location. I got a 10/10 votes saying that I should do the people have spoken and it shall be done. I have a whole lot of support especially with my Jollibae, Nichelle. We actually went down together to be the first customers of the new location. The new location is very nice and modern, probably the nicest stand alone Jollibee that I have seen. Nichelle was even saying it is the nicest one that she has seen as well. Both the exterior and interior is very nice. When you step in the the entrance they have quite a lot of table and seating areas. While in line we got to talk story with a few Jollibee representatives. We got there just a little after 7am and they opened at just a little after 8am. Just being in line fueled the joy and jollyness again, a time of tasting and being at a Jollibee for the first time. For example, standing in line to be the first one at Jollibee Kalihi. The inside of the store is really nice, they have a lot of table and seating areas. The set up is almost like the combination design of all Jollibees in Hawaii so far. Right when they opened the doors all of the crew workers were very welcoming. When we went to order, we were bummed to know that they do not have breakfastJoys available. Instead, we ordered two burger steak meals and two peach mango pies. The only deal that they were having for the first 100 customers was a free jollibee doll with a $20 or over purchase. Honestly, it wasn’t really a grand opening perk to me but it is what it was. While we were ordering, the actually Jollibee mascot came out greeting all of us customers as well and even took a picture with us. It was very Jolly indeed having the Jollibee Kid, Jollibee, and Jollibae in one photo. Too much jollyness power right there. Towards the back of the restaurant they have a cool picture with Jollibee doing his signature twist move. Speaking of restroom, I checked it out and used it for the first time. It was very nice, clean, and fresh of course. We stayed for a bit and took a few more pictures of the area. Will be back for day two of Jollibee Kapolei jollyness.
Kalihi Visit. Today I came over in the late afternoon time. I came over with my Jolly niece Hazel because I think she was craving Jollibee so we went ahead and went to the closest Jollibee after picking her up from school. She gets excited and is happy when she sees Jollibee. The dine-in beezyness was about 40 percent. We just got a yumburger kiddie meal with pineapple juice. We got one of the Jollibee toys which was one of the Jollitown characters Popo. The Jollibee kiddie Jollitown toys have a musical theme. Hazel liked the toy and had fun playing it. She mostly just ate the Jolly crispy fries along with her pineapple juice. The drive-thru beezyness was about 20 percent. Since it is almost thanksgiving and Christmas time, they also now have their Christmas meal bundle specials going on.
