Spartanburg-based Denny’s Corp. has opened its first Denny’s restaurant in the Philippines, the company recently announced.
The Bistro Group plans to open 10 Denny’s restaurants over the next 10 years across the Philippines.
The first location is the Uptown Parade in Bonifacio, Global City, in Manila. A second location is set to open in November in Santa Rosa, Laguna.
The new Denny’s features a welcoming atmosphere with American comfort food served for breakfast, lunch and dinner, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the company stated.
“With over 1,700 locations throughout the world, Denny’s is excited to open in the Philippines, an important gateway to Asia,” stated John Miller, Denny’s president and CEO. “We’re delighted with the performance of our America’s Diner concept with the increasing global acceptance and demand for our brand.”
Founded in 1953 in Lakewood, Calif., Denny’s is one of the largest full-service restaurant chains in the world. Headquartered in Spartanburg, the company began its international expansion in 1966 with the opening of its first location in Acapulco, Mexico. Since then, Denny’s has expanded its reach to 14 countries and U.S. territories.
Denny’s spokeswoman Christine Beggan was unavailable to comment on whether there will be any impact on the Spartanburg’s headquarters.
