An ‘Americanised-Filipino’ fast food chain is set to launch in Australia in 2017, serving a peculiar mix of products such as breakfast steaks, hotdogs and tuna pies.

Known as Jollibee, the franchise has more than 1000 outlets and is one of Asia’s largest restaurant companies, News Corp reported.

Among the restaurants bizarre menu items, according to SmartCompany, is spaghetti, buttered corn and a number of rice dishes.

The announcement was made at the 17th Asia Pacific Retailers Convention and Exhibition last week.

“Currently, we are present in two (continents), and in the next two years we will see Jollibee in four continents,” Dennis Flores, Jollibee Foods Corp vice president for international markets, said.

“We are doing our best to open our first stores in the UK and Italy next year, and soon in Australia and Japan. We will continue our journey with Jollibee as a truly global brand.”

The restaurant is known for it’s quintessential mascot, a smiling bee dressed in a tuxedo and chef’s hat.

Similar to McDonalds, the franchise also allows customers to book children’s birthday parties online.
