The original owner of Jollibee are Tony Tan and his family opened a Magnolia Ice Cream parlor in Cubao, Quezon City in 1975. In 1978, he and his siblings engaged the services of a management consultant, Manuel C. Lumba, who shifted the business focus from ice cream to hot dogs after his studies showed a much larger market waiting to be served. Lumba was Tan's last business and management mentor. Throughout its three decade history, Jollibee became a success enjoying rapid growth.
