What they serve: Fried chicken, burger steaks, spaghetti
What their deal is: In the pantheon of nationally treasured fast-food mascots, Ronald McDonald will always take the cake. Followed by Grimace, because that guy’s chill as f*ck. But in a close third, it’s Jollibee -- basically, he’s a giant anthropomorphic red bee who’s one of the most recognizable figures in the Philippines, and with good reason. This guy slings Filipino comfort food (tuna pies!! SPAM sandwiches!! Spicy fried chicken!!) at over 2,000 locations worldwide, including a few locations stateside. Look out, Grimace.
