Jollibee launches first UK restaurant

At the start of the month, Caterlyst revealed that the Asian rival to KFC was coming to the UK and now it has been announced that the first site will open this week on the former Wagamama site on London's Earls Court Road.

Jollibee, which offers single plates combining fried chicken, tomato spaghetti, beef with gravy and rice, has plans for rapid expansion across Europe.

As previously revealed, Jollibee is targeting 25 stores in Britain and 50 across Europe over the next five years.
