Burger King has launched its first outlet in the Republic of Macedonia through a Master Franchise agreement with TAB GIDA.
The first Republic of Macedonia Burger King will be located in the TAV Alexander the Great Skopje airport.
Jose Cil, President of Burger King Corp. in Europe, Middle East and Africa, said: “We are very pleased to announce the Burger King brand’s continued expansion in the EMEA region. This new market entry is part of our overall growth plan to increase our brand presence in existing European markets as well as in strategic new ones. We have closely studied the region with TAB GIDA and believe that now is the time to develop the brand in the Republic of Macedonia. We look forward to a long and successful future in the market.”
TAB GIDA, which also owns the Burger King Master Franchise for Turkey, will help deliver Burger King’s renowned flamed-grilled burgers to the Republic of Macedonia. Additional restaurants are expected to open throughout the country, with the second outlet opening in the capital’s city centre before the end of this year.
Caner Dikici, CEO of TAB GIDA, said: “We are very excited to continue our partnership and expansion with a globally recognised brand and market leader and expand the Burger King business in the Republic of Macedonia. We are about to open our 400th restaurant in Turkey and, therefore, believe that, similar to our success in this market, the Republic of Macedonia also has a high potential for the Burger King brand to grow and expand quickly.”
