Glasgow to welcome independent burger chain Fat Hippo to city centre

By Craig Williams

Independent burger chain Fat Hippo has announced plans to open a new restaurant in Glasgow this year.

The company, which specialises in burgers, loaded fries and more ‘good old fashioned, roll up your sleeves and get it all over your face’ food, will open the brand new restaurant on St Vincent Street in Spring/Summer.

The chain operates at 10 locations across the UK in areas such as the north east and west of England, Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire.

It will be Fat Hippo’s second site in Scotland after they opened their concession kiosk serving a selection of their burgers within the new Lane 7 complex in St. James Quarter, Edinburgh last year.

The family friendly burger joint is famed for its quality ingredients and quirky flavours, with burgers like their PB&J (a beef burger topped with peanut butter and bacon jam) available, alongside the classics.

Glaswegians will be able to tuck into a full menu of their signature beef and boneless buttermilk chicken patties (with fries as standard) and a range of vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free options - as well as a kids menu.

Michael Phillips, who founded Fat Hippo in the North East of England in 2010 said: “When we were given the opportunity to bring Fat Hippo to Glasgow city centre, we couldn’t turn it down.

“The building on St. Vincent Street is the ideal location for our brand new restaurant, and we’re so excited to be able to welcome everyone for a taste of ‘the good kind of gluttony’.”

The group also work closely with Deliveroo and will be launching on the platform in Glasgow to allow customers to enjoy Fat Hippo’s signature burgers in the comfort of their own home.

Michael Johnson, Operations Manager, added: “We can’t wait to bring the best burgers to Glasgow and welcome even more people into our ever-growing herd of burger lovers.”
