Warm, joyful service. Jollibee earned another triumph with its recent inclusion in the Top 10 brands for customer satisfaction in Kuwait. The awards program by Service Hero surveyed over 500 brands in the country.

The Service Hero CSI Awards honors companies in Kuwait that deliver exceptional customer service, measuring key factors such as expectations, satisfaction, and likelihood of recommendation. It also measures different service dimensions such as staff, location, product quality, value for money, speed, and reliability. Over 500 brands across 20 categories were surveyed.

“Being recognized among Kuwait’s Top 10 brands for customer satisfaction from over 500 brands is a testament to our commitment to providing customers with great-tasting food served with the warmth and joyful service that the Jollibee brand is known for. This citation is not only a badge of honor for us, but it also means we are fulfilling our promise to our customers,” said Joseph Tanbuntiong, Jollibee Group Chief Business Officer and Head, Jollibee Global.

Serving joy. The Jollibee Kuwait team has shown passion and dedication in providing exceptional customer service to customers who crave for bestsellers Chickenjoy and Jolly Spaghetti.

Dennis Flores, President of Jollibee Group’s business in Europe, Middle East, and Asia, and Australia (EMEAA), congratulated the Jollibee Kuwait team and franchisee for the milestone: “We celebrate this achievement with all our store and operations teams in Kuwait whose passion and dedication to our mission of serving great-tasting food and bringing the joy of eating to everyone has made this recognition possible. We are also grateful to our customers in Kuwait for their continued support and loyalty to Jollibee.”

Flores added, “We extend our deepest gratitude to our franchisee Yacoub Aljajery for his steadfast belief in our brand. His hands-on approach not only ensures operational excellence, but also fosters a culture of passion and commitment, making exceptional customer service at Jollibee Kuwait possible.”

The Jollibee Group opened the first Jollibee store in Al Watya, Kuwait City in February 2012 through franchisee Yacoub Aljajery of the Al Musaifra Catering Company. Today, Jollibee has seven stores in Kuwait, with loyal fans craving for bestselling products like Chickenjoy and Jolly Spaghetti.

Jollibee as a franchisor of choice

Aljajery highlighted the factors behind Jollibee’s success in Kuwait, including its strong brand recognition and comprehensive support system. “I chose Jollibee as a franchise because of its strong brand recognition, delicious menu offerings, and the opportunity to introduce Jollibee to Arab/Kuwaiti customers, which has proven to be a successful venture,” said franchisee Aljajery. “I appreciate Jollibee’s comprehensive support system, including marketing assistance, ongoing operational guidance, and training programs which have been instrumental in the growth and success of our franchise operations in Kuwait.

He added, “Being cited as one of the Top 10 brands in Kuwait is a recognition of our dedication and hard work in upholding Jollibee’s standards and values. This award also serves as our source of pride and motivation to continue delivering exceptional service and quality to our customers in Kuwait.”

Jollibee also has stores in other Middle East countries such as the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, and Oman.

Global recognition and growth

Recently, Jollibee has been ranked Top 5 Strongest Restaurant Brand in the World, overtaking more established Quick Service Restaurant brands, according to the latest annual brand ranking report by Brand Finance, the world’s leading independent brand valuation agency. Jollibee has elevated its rating from AA- to AAA. In addition, Jollibee is the only Philippine brand listed in the 2024 Top 25 Most Valuable Restaurant Brands and Top 10 Strongest Restaurant Brands.

The brand has also been cited as the Top 2 fastest-growing restaurant brand in the world. Surging by an impressive 51% to USD2.3 billion in brand value, Jollibee ascended from rank 20 to rank 17 in this year’s Global Restaurant Rankings.

Jollibee continues to gain strong traction among mainstream consumers in countries outside the Philippines. In Vietnam and Brunei, mainstream non-Filipino locals comprise about 100% of customers; 81% in Malaysia; 80% in the United Kingdom; 70% in Singapore; and 60% in Hong Kong. This is a testament to the brand’s global appeal.

SALT LAKE CITY, June 11, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Myriad Genetics, Inc. (NASDAQ: MYGN), a leader in genetic testing and precision medicine, today announced a collaboration with GSK aimed at improving access to homologous recombination deficiency (HRD) diagnostic testing for high-grade serous ovarian cancer (HGSOC) patients. A new sponsored testing program leveraging Myriad’s MyChoice HRD Plus and MyChoice CDx Plus Tests (collectively referred to as Myriad’s MyChoice Tests) is now available in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Egypt, Netherlands, Saudia Arabia, Singapore, and United Arab Emirates.

HRD testing is an important predictive and prognostic biomarker for patients who have ovarian cancer. Myriad’s MyChoice Tests determine HRD status in women with ovarian cancer. Clinicians can order this test through their local pathology labs and samples are sent to Myriad Genetics.

This collaboration delivers on both companies’ shared commitment to improve care for patients with advanced ovarian cancer by facilitating access to genetic testing and demonstrates a mutual dedication to meeting an unmet need for patients who otherwise may not have access to testing.

“Our collaboration with GSK is an important step forward in providing critical genetic insights that can help clinicians guide more personalized ovarian cancer treatment decisions,” said Patrick Burke, PhD, EVP of Strategy and Innovation, Myriad Genetics. “In the pursuit of advancing healthcare equity, Myriad is committed to extending the reach of our diagnostic solutions, like Myriad’s MyChoice Tests into additional markets to support more targeted patient care based on their genomic profile.”

About Myriad’s MyChoice Test
Myriad’s MyChoice® test is the most comprehensive tumor test for determining HRD status based on the assessment of genomic alterations in genes such as BRCA1 and BRCA2 and Genomic Instability Score (GIS) status using Myriad’s proprietary algorithm.  It enables healthcare professionals to identify patients with advanced ovarian cancer who are more likely to respond to treatment with targeted therapies.

About Myriad Genetics
Myriad Genetics is a leading genetic testing and precision medicine company dedicated to advancing health and well-being for all. Myriad develops and offers genetic tests that help assess the risk of developing disease or disease progression and guide treatment decisions across medical specialties where genetic insights can significantly improve patient care and lower healthcare costs.

King receives Indonesia president-elect


His Majesty King Abdullah II on Monday received President-elect and Secretary of Defence of Indonesia Prabowo Subianto, who is scheduled to participate in the Call for Action: Urgent Humanitarian Response for Gaza conference hosted by Jordan Tuesday.

The meeting, attended by His Royal Highness Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II, covered regional developments and the dangerous situation in Gaza.

His Majesty stressed the importance of the upcoming humanitarian response conference in uniting efforts to coordinate and increase the delivery of aid to Gaza to mitigate the humanitarian catastrophe.

The King stressed the need to reach an immediate and permanent ceasefire in Gaza and ensure the protection of civilians.

His Majesty commended Indonesia’s efforts in working towards peace in the region and supporting UNRWA to enable it to undertake its vital role under its UN mandate.

The King reaffirmed the need to create a political horizon to achieve peace on the basis of the two-state solution, which guarant
ees the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on the 4 June 1967 lines with East Jerusalem as its capital.

The meeting also covered the strong ties between the two countries and the importance of expanding cooperation.

The national football team topped Group VII of the FIFA World Cup qualifiers, after beating its Saudi counterpart on Tuesday.

The Saudi team opened the scoring through Ali Lagami in the 16th minute, and the national team equalized the score in the 27th minute through Ali Alwan, while Nour Al-Rawabdeh doubled the score and gave the national team the lead before the end of the first half.

Greatest risk of famine in Gaza has not yet arrived, JHCO Secretary General says, 3rd, final add


“We are seriously considering setting up temporary camps to shelter families who have lost their homes.

These camps will be equipped with tents, health facilities and water distribution stations. Additionally, we aim to provide food, blankets and essential clothing to ensure that living conditions in the camps are as acceptable as possible,” Shebli said.

He noted that Jordan has made significant efforts to facilitate the entry of humanitarian aid into the sector since the crisis began. Early on, Jordan sent planes loaded with relief, food, and medical supplies from the Egyptian city of Al Arish, followed by airdrops led by His Majesty the King when various areas of Gaza, particularly the north, faced the threat of famine and death before Jordan could deliver aid through land convoys.

He pointed out that the number of trucks sent reached 1,865 within Jordanian land convoys and others in partnership with countries and international organisations. The number of airdrops reached 358, including 257 in collabora
tion with friendly and brotherly countries.

He added, “We sent 53 planes to Al Arish, including 40 in partnership with relief organisations. Jordan was able to provide direct aid to Gaza residents in cooperation with partner organisations inside the sector, benefitting about 717,000 Gazans. The total amount of aid that reached Gaza through Jordan was about 31,000 tonnes, varying between food, relief, medical and health supplies.

From the beginning of the war, Shebli underscored, Jordan announced support for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) and provided financial assistance of $3 million to sustain its operations. Under the directives of His Majesty the King, Jordan strengthened medical staff and supplies at the field hospital in Tel Al Hawa, established in northern Gaza in 2009, and ordered the establishment of another hospital in Khan Yunis in southern Gaza. The two hospitals have received tens of thousands of citizens in Gaza. During the peak of the war, medical su
pplies were delivered through airdrops to enable them to perform their work and provide the necessary services.

Shebli said that His Majesty the King has been keen in all his movements and meetings with world leaders to emphasise the need to deliver aid to the people of Gaza without interruption and sufficiently and highlight the humanitarian tragedy faced by innocent people in the sector.

As part of his efforts, His Majesty organised an emergency international meeting in Amman at the end of November 2023 to coordinate the humanitarian response in Gaza, attended by leaders of international organisations, UN agencies, and representatives from Arab and foreign countries to identify urgent needs, address challenges, and prevent duplication of efforts. Today, through the conference at the Dead Sea, he seeks once again to prevent the exacerbation of the humanitarian crisis in Gaza, Shebli concluded.

Greatest risk of famine in Gaza has not yet arrived, JHCO Secretary General says, 2nd add


He explained that coordinating distribution within the sector requires a large team of local volunteers and workers, in addition to close cooperation with local authorities to ensure aid reaches the neediest areas. This work requires on-the-ground cooperation from international parties (organizations) and a well-organized and well-trained cadre to ensure the effectiveness and continuity of distribution. Ensuring the continuity of this aid flow depends on securing financial and in-kind support and the active participation of the international community.

He highlighted the challenges facing the JHCO’s work, including the reliance on donations and international support to provide aid, and any decline in this support could negatively affect Jordan’s ability to consistently provide aid. Continuous closures and increased security measures at border crossings could also hinder or delay the delivery of humanitarian aid to Gaza. There are challenges related to providing the necessary logistical resources, which can b
e complex and costly, and administrative challenges related to coordinating with various international and local organizations, which require significant organizational and administrative efforts to ensure aid reaches those in need. Any disruption in this coordination can negatively affect the effectiveness of relief operations.

He added that multiple crises may pose additional challenges to Jordan, such as local economic crises or natural disasters, increasing pressure on available resources and capacities to assist in Gaza. Addressing these concerns requires careful planning and continuous coordination with international partners and relief organizations to ensure the effective and sustainable delivery of humanitarian support.

He stressed that the greatest risk of famine has not yet arrived. It will become evident to everyone after the war ends, and if we do not take action now and set a precise plan, harsh scenes await us, epidemics will spread, and the demand for the missing hospitals will increase. Thi
s humanitarian crisis cannot be compared to any previous crisis in modern times.

Shebli said he expected many challenges and obstacles, as there will be a significant need to rebuild the infrastructure that has been destroyed, as a movement within Gaza depends on establishing new roads, followed by building houses, hospitals and schools, which require enormous efforts and substantial funding necessitating a clear and steadfast international intervention. Also, we will need to provide medical, psychological and social support to residents who have suffered psychological trauma due to the war, especially children and women, requiring specialised treatment services. Additionally, there will be challenges in restoring economic life and providing job opportunities for residents, especially since many businesses and commercial establishments have been destroyed or severely damaged and compensating for the educational loss for students. These obstacles require careful planning and close cooperation with various don
or entities and international organisations, along with a commitment to secure grants and funding for this purpose.

Shebli pointed out that the aid distribution process carried out through strategic partnerships with specialised UN and international relief organisations.

“We rely on these partnerships to ensure the effectiveness and speed of aid distribution. For instance, we cooperate with the World Food Programme and partner associations working in the Gaza Strip to ensure the coordinated and organised distribution of food and medicines. These partnerships allow us to distribute aid efficiently and ensure it reaches its recipients as quickly as possible,” he explained.

On the participation in the “Call for Action: Urgent Humanitarian Response for Gaza” conference, Shebli said; “The prominent international participation in the conference is very important. The international response at all levels confirms a serious desire to help. We are currently working in cooperation with the international community and concerned parties to make Jordan a key point on the map of transit to Gaza by establishing a Jordanian relief corri
dor to facilitate the delivery of aid to the sector more effectively and quickly.”

He added, “This corridor includes integrated logistical arrangements in coordination with the relevant authorities between Jordan and Gaza to ensure the smooth passage of relief convoys. We also coordinate efforts with UN and international organisations to ensure the sustainable and continuous provision of aid. The Jordanian relief corridor will allow us to increase the volume of aid sent and deliver it faster to those in need, especially in times of emergency crises, and Jordan has what it takes to play this humanitarian ethical role it bears on its shoulders, given its long-standing commitment to serving the Palestinian people.”

Shebli noted that relief work is fraught with risks, it is not as easy as some might think and the path for the work of associations and humanitarian sector institutions is not paved. “There are many obstacles that hinder our way of sending relief materials to Gaza, including security restrictions i
mposed on border crossings that lead to delays in their arrival.”

He added, “We also face logistical problems related to the number of trucks in the fleet, which do not meet the needs and require support. Additionally, there are challenges related to coordinating the movement of trucks and ensuring their safety, as several convoys have been attacked by settlers. In addition, there is a high cost to sending aid convoys; a single convoy of 100 trucks can cost up to half-a-million dollars, including transportation costs, fuel, and worker wages, as well as administrative costs.”

Greatest risk of famine in Gaza has not yet arrived, JHCO Secretary General says


The Secretary General of the Jordan Hashemite Charity Organization (JHCO) Hussein Shebli, said that the JHCO is the official local destination to provide donations to Gaza, and over time, due to the trust of the international community in Jordan, the JHCO became a regional hub for many countries to send aid by land and air through the Kingdom, in cooperation with the Jordan Armed Forces (JAF) – Arab Army, which mobilized all its capabilities to transport relief materials to Gaza.

He told the Jordan Times, a local English-language daily newspaper, that Jordan has achieved significant and important achievements in Gaza by leveraging its previous experiences and high organizational capabilities. Since the onset of the recent crisis, JHCO has sent thousands of air and land shipments carrying food, medical, and relief materials. These shipments were primarily directed to hospitals and health centers suffering from severe shortages of medicines and medical equipment. We have also provided food aid to hundreds of t
housands of affected families. This could not have been achieved without the concerted efforts of the logistical fieldwork team and continuous coordination with local authorities and partner organizations.

“Our message to the international community is an urgent call to intensify support and aid for Gaza. The situation requires immediate and comprehensive intervention without delay, and everyone must fulfill their humanitarian responsibilities. We raise a warning sign calling on donor countries, charitable institutions, and individuals to provide donations and humanitarian aid to support the Palestinian people in these difficult times,” Shebli added.

He emphasized that donations and logistical support are the only ways to help the affected and rebuild what the war has destroyed. International solidarity and cooperation among all parties will make a real difference and restore hope to the people of Gaza.

“We urge the international community to stand by Gaza and provide the necessary support for recovery and
prosperity. We do not want to reach the moment where everyone regrets inaction or doing nothing in the face of the escalating tragedy,” Shebli further emphasized.

“The relief materials in our warehouses are depleting over time, so donations and international support are the cornerstones of our work inside Gaza,” Shebli warned.

“Our continued activity depends on the financial and logistical support provided by donor countries, charitable institutions, and individual donors. Without this support, we will not be able to purchase essential materials or provide necessary services to the population. Therefore, we always strive to communicate with our international partners and present transparent reports on the use of funds and the challenges we face, which helps build trust and increase the chances of receiving more donations,” Shebli added.
