As part of its plan of expanding around the world, Jollibee is opening two new stores in Scotland this February and March. 

The Filipino restaurant behind the famous Chickenjoy will establish new outlets in Edinburgh and Glasgow. 

The Edinburgh store, located at 136 Princes Street, will debut on February 24. Meanwhile, its second Scottish store in Glasgow will welcome customers on March 25. 

According to the company, both stores will offer halal meat to cater to all kinds of consumers. 

“This is an important moment for us as we introduce Jollibee to Scotland with not only 1 but 2 restaurants launching within a month, showing our commitment to expand in Europe. We are looking forward to serving our Scottish customers, delicious food in a joyful restaurant experience,” Jollibee Group CEO Ernesto Tanmantiong said.

Because Jollibee is a hit among young people, Edinburgh and Glasgow will be perfect venues. The two cities have a large student presence and active youth community

“The reception for Jollibee in 2021 gave us confidence that our new store design and locally relevant menu created specifically for our European audience was working. We are very happy to be opening on one of the busiest streets in Edinburgh and Glasgow and expect to see big queues of chicken lovers at its launch,” President of Jollibee Europe, Middle East, Asia, and Australia Dennis Flores explained. 

Business Head of Jollibee Europe Adam Parkinson said this is the best time for Jollibee to open in Scotland as restrictions are set to be rescinded soon. 

“We are optimistic that opening now in Scotland is an opportune time for Jollibee and will bring customers something different and exciting. Most people have not been able to try new things in the last few years, so bringing the fun, joyful, and colorful Jollibee restaurant to customers will be a great start to 2022,” he said. 

Jollibee opened its first store in the UK in 2018, specifically in London. Since then, it’s added more locations – Cardiff, Newcastle, Liverpool, Leeds, and Leicester Square in London’s West End.
