Jollibee now secures Edinburgh site hot on the heels of Glasgow


Jollibee, the Philippines fast food group, has secured a site in Edinburgh – at 136 Princes Street in a former Santander bank, after the company took on the former Burger King on Glasgow’s Sauchiehall Street earlier this month.

The Jollibee Group, which operates about 1,200 sites worldwide, plans to be in ‘every major city in the UK’, and is planning a further 15 to 20 openings here next year and the company also pledged to invest £30m to open 50 sites in the UK by 2025. The business expects to invest almost £1m per site.

The brand, which plans to open ten new sites in 2021 and recently opened its seventh UK site, in Reading, has openings lined up in Newcastle and Nottingham. Earlier this year.

Founded in 1978 by Tony Tan Caktiong in the Philippines, the company was built up from ice cream store beginnings, then later on expanded to hot food. Jollibee quickly became the market leader in the Philippines’ fast food industry and by 1998 it went global.
