“It feels like we’re just getting started” – Five Guys boss eyes more UK sites as it reaches 100 in just six years

Five Guys St Paul’s

Premium burger brand Five Guys has launched its 100th restaurant in the UK – just six years after it opened its first.

The landmark branch is anchored in a prime position opposite St Paul’s Cathedral and was secured by UK leisure property agency Shelley Sandzer, which incidentally assisted the brand in finding their first UK location, in Covent Garden in 2013.

Alongside the latest opening, Five Guys is launching its breakfast menu for the first time in the UK, at the 5,000 square foot St Paul’s store and three others across the country.

John Eckbert, CEO of Five Guys UK, said that more projects are planned in 2020.

“Since we first opened our doors in Covent Garden on the 4th of July, 2013, the UK has given us such a warm and enthusiastic welcome. We are grateful for all the hungry customers who have flocked to Five Guys to discover our burgers and fries. It feels like we’re just getting started – with so many exciting locations to come.”

Five Guys is also poised to further expand its presence in London with a store at Baker Street.

The bespoke hamburger specialist, which has around 20 branches in the capital, is currently refitting a unit that was formerly occupied by YO! Sushi.
