JFC is the first food service company to be listed in the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) in 1993.

JFC also operates commissaries or manufacturing plants to support the continued growth of its retail chain. It has 12 commissaries and a distribution center in the Philippines. Abroad, it has three commissaries in China, three in the United States and one in Vietnam.
