What is the impact of historically high inflation on the UK consumer landscape?

The average UK consumer is experiencing a severe cost-of living crisis as inflation surges to a forty-year high and the price of goods continues to rise. This shock is the result of the sharply increasing costs of commodities, energy, and the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, and is threatening FMCG manufacturers, retailers, and foodservice operators’ ability to survive and grow. Inflation will have a profound effect on many consumer-facing industries in 2022 and beyond. Consult GlobalData’s new whitepaper, Inflation in the UK: The Impact of Historically High Inflation on the UK Consumer Landscape, to better understand shifts in consumer behavior and their impact on spending patterns, as well as the implications for UK businesses.

The expansion plan also includes the launch of a flagship store in Leicester Square, London, in the first half of the next year.

It will be followed by launches in Edinburgh, Leeds, Cardiff, and other major cities across the country.

In addition to the UK, the chain aims to open locations in Italy, Spain, and other European markets.

Jollibee Europe market head Adam Parkinson said: “We’re pushing forward with our continued growth plan across Europe as we believe that both the high streets and people’s livelihoods need the support once we come out the other side of this pandemic.”

Known for its Chickenjoy fried chicken and Jolly Spaghetti, Jollibee made its entry to the UK fast food market in 2018 with the opening of its London store.

The chain opened a second restaurant in Liverpool in September.

Jollibee is set to open its third UK location in Leicester this week, despite the national lockdown placed by the government to contain Covid-19.

The new location will initially offer take-away with dine-in and delivery services expected to follow when restrictions are lifted.

With a seating capacity for 134 people, the Leicester restaurant is the first UK Jollibee location to sell all-Halal meat.

Jollibee operates a global network of 1,466 stores with a presence in 34 countries.

In January, the chain opened two new restaurants in the Tampa Bay, Florida, and the island of Maui in Hawaii in the US.

Last year, Jollibee expanded its presence in the US by opening two restaurants across northern and southern California.
