Larger than life Chickenjoy Buckets Bring Joy to the Billboards of New York Times Square as Jollibee continues to expand rapidly in North America Homegrown restaurant brand Jollibee joins other global brands in the Billboard Capital of the World, New York Times Square.

TIMES SQUARE, New York. 29 Sept 2022 – After a blockbuster opening at New York Times Square, homegrown restaurant chain Jollibee continues to make waves in the Big Apple with digital billboards now already up at the iconic Times Square in New York, the
global epicenter of outdoor advertising.

Three billboards featuring its flagship product–the world-famous Jollibee Chickenjoy fried chicken—are now showing at the heart of Times Square’s famous bowtie. It features two models who, after seeing a piece of the crispylicious and juicylicious Chickenjoy, couldn’t resist a bite and grabbed a piece of the bestselling fried chicken from an adjacent billboard.

In August, Jollibee Chickenjoy was named “the best chain fried chicken in America” by Eater.com. The distinction comes after Jollibee’s Chickenjoy bested over 15 global brands in four rounds of contests across different categories of chicken – from bone-in, to fillets, to nuggets. Earlier in July, Jollibee was also recognized as one of the Hottest Brands in America for 2022 by Ad Age, driven by its power to draw huge queues to its restaurants. Today, Jollibee joins other global brands which have made a presence in the Billboard Capital of the World, and is one of the few Filipino brands and personalities who have appeared on a Times Square billboard.

Jewelry allows us to express ourselves and often holds sentimental value. Have you ever wondered about the differences between homemade jewelry and mass-produced baubles? There’s a lot that goes into creating these different types of jewelry.

 

Understanding the differences between the two can help you decide which piece to next add to your collection. Here are some factors to consider when choosing handmade jewelry and mass-produced pieces.

 

1. Differences in Production

Handmade jewelry is crafted by an individual. These pieces are usually unique. You can make them yourself or find them at places such as farmer’s markets, craft shows and online.

 

Alternatively, mass-produced baubles are made by machines and factory workers in assembly lines. For this reason, there are many copies of each item that is produced. An example of mass-produced baubles is costume jewelry that you can purchase at a clothing or department store.  

 

2. Differences in Materials

Mass-produced jewelry is often made with low-quality materials. It’s even common for customers to have allergic reactions to the alloys in these pieces, or for fingers to turn green from poor quality rings. This is because larger companies try to cut costs and raise their profits, meaning quality is not a top priority.

 

Moreover, manufactured jewelry tends to break down faster. Gemstones are usually fake and may not have the best color or clarity. You might only wear these pieces a few times and then throw them away, which means they may not be a good investment.

 

Homemade pieces are usually constructed with higher-quality materials that come from trusted and reputable jewelry-making supply companies. Whether you make a piece yourself or buy from a crafter, you know exactly what you’re getting. Some handmade jewelry may even come with a certificate of authenticity. Additionally, these pieces can last for many years, as they are less likely to tarnish or break.
