Wave goodbye to that diet: There’s a Five Guys opening off Princes Street

Will it be open past 2 tho

A branch of the American fast-food chain, Five Guys, is set to open in the centre of Edinburgh.

Five Guys, which is hailed for its burgers and cajun fries, started in Virginia in 1986 and has since found its way around most states in the US, and now the capital of Scotland.

Although they already have a restaurant in Fort Kinnaird retail park, Five Guys is set open in a more central location, replacing Millets on Frederick Street.

Speaking to the Scotsman, the director in the retail team at CBRE which advised Five Guys, Callum Mortimer, said: “Five Guys’ endlessly customisable burgers and dedication to freshness and quality have seen the brand move from strength to strength in the UK. Having also concluded deals with Five Guys in Aberdeen and Dundee city centre recently we were delighted to help secure such a prominent Edinburgh city centre location.

“It had been a long standing requirement, and this new acquisition further enhances the brands’ representation across the country.”

But, will it be open past 2am though?
