MANILA -- Philippine fast-food giant Jollibee Foods said Friday it will spend 7 billion pesos ($138 million) to build discreet "cloud kitchens" and a stronger delivery service as part of a global restructuring plan.

Struggling to offset the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, Jollibee said the "cloud kitchens" or unmarked delivery outlets, would not include dine-in facilities and would be located in discreet, low rent sites.
