Jollibee Foods knocking on door in UK
Jollibee Foods may open its first store in the UK by next year, says British Ambassador to the Philippines Daniel Pruce.
This followed him visiting Jollibee’s 1000th branch in a “show of support” for plans by the Philippines’ largest fast-food company to expand to the UK, where tens of thousands of Filipinos are living.
The Philippine company has already sealed a deal with Singapore’s Blackbird Holdings which will see it enter continental Europe, starting with Italy.
Jollibee is also reportedly in talks to acquire a stake in British-based sandwich and coffee chain Pret-A-Manger.
