I will agree with you, the bee does look cute. But Chick-fil-A has spelling-challenged cows. So if we're judging a restaurant chain by its mascot, I think they'll do just fine.

(Oh, by the way, since my food tastes tend towards the level of what you'd find at an elementary school cafeteria, I'd probably like Jollibee just fine. I'll have to try them out, if I ever find myself near one.)
Yes Chick Fil A has one of the best marketing campaigns with those "cows".

I am pretty sure ..... I would only be going to Jollie Bee’s once for the experience.
I am anticipating I won’t be in love with anything other then the bee 🐝

I've been to Toronto WAY to many times.Toronto has great food.One of the best but so does MANY cities from California to NYC where there have been lines at CFA around the corner every time they open for over a year.

As far as fast food chains,there is absolutely NOTHING different or special about it that sets it apart from other cities.
We are talking about a chain of fast food.Nothing is revolutionary about that concept.

Panera Bread you can ,make at home also yet people flock to it.It and CFA are the top grossing same store sales leaders in the U.S. and CFA is far ahead of it
I hate the food at Panera.
The only plus is that they have comfortable seating and lots of plugs. The desserts suck too.
Maybe I might have higher expectations then most people lol.
I don’t like buying stuff I can actually make. There bagels are ok... but I could buy a good bagel at many places. The food is stuff that is nothing complicated to make.

When I am eating out I want something I can’t make as good or take too long to make.

I am not saying there is no place for it in the market ..... but I am not excited about and won’t be in rush to try it

So if this is any indication, Canadians like fried chicken so I don't see any reason why Chick-Fil-A will do poorly. In fact I think it'll do well.
Popeyes has a better catch
Toronto and Canada does not have food chain that offers spicy lousiana style chicken.
The sell biscuits and different sides then kfc.

The different from churches chicken too. As you can get ice cream... different fries ... different biscuits there.

So there are differences.

I am happy this place is serving grilled chicken... but it just seems underwhelming.

Yeah ...another okay chain

The chicken is the main draw but its not just the chicken.Its the presentation that sets it apart. I have NEVER been to any fast food place that has the consistent quality of CFA.I personally like how they take care of their employees.
Rarely do I get stale bread or heat lamped food.

Also CFA milkshakes and lemonade is like a drug they are so good,

Actually Popeye's has been in the Toronto area for quite some time. They just weren't in Western Canada but now they are. I don't think they've made it to BC yet but I think that's because BC is very vegan health conscious. It's more like the California of Canada.

You need to amend that to the lower mainland. There's a whole lot of BC that is VERY not vegan.

CFA has the best sauces.The chicken sandwhich by itself can't be done so differently other than how its presented. The basic CFA sandwhich is average but when they offer it as a Smokehouse BBQ with bacon ,or eat the Club grilled chicken with Honey Roasted BBQ saucce(my go to)its quite good.
The waffle fries especially are always hot and fresh.

I have no problem admitting I like the place for its service,consistency and quality.Its taste isthe main thing though

Not all Canadians. Can't stand the place.
