Wolfgang’s Steakhouse expanding in Philippines
Wolfgang’s Steakhouse has opened its second branch in the Philippines, at the new Podium Mall in the Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong.
And the president of the New York-based restaurant, Peter Zwiener, says a third branch is on its way.
Its first branch launched at Resorts World Manila in 2016, while the third branch will open in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, in June.
Local partner Raymund Magdaluyo says a restaurant is also being considered for Cebu.
He says the opening of the Podium restaurant is strategic because of the wide market of residential areas and company offices in the neighbourhood.
Compared to the 120-seat restaurant at Resorts World, the Podium branch can accommodate up to 70 diners.
Wolfgang’s also has branches in Japan (four), South Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore and China. Zwiener says he is flying from the Philippines to Jakarta to investigate the possibility of opening a branch in Indonesia.
Other Asia expansion being considered includes Shanghai, Shenzhen and Taiwan.
