Teddy’s Bigger Burgers breaks into Manila

Teddy'sTeddy’s Bigger Burgers is growing internationally, announcing nine locations in the Philippines. The Hawaii-born company confirmed its largest partnership to date, covering the next three years in Manila. The launch date of the first store is Friday, July 18, 2014, located at Greenbelt 3, Makati City.

A potential location for one of the remaining eight future Teddy’s is Newport Mall, Resorts World Manila.

Spearheaded by the High Jap Group, the Philippines opening of Teddy’s is expected to be a success with the local demographic, according to HJG’s Ricky Laudico.

“Opening in the Philippines is beyond anything we could have imagined when we started our first little burger joint,” said co-founder Rich Stula.

Other co-founder Ted Tsakiris adds, “The progress we are seeing with Teddy’s is excellent. We’re excited to launch Team Philippines!”

Eaters in the Philippines will soon taste Teddy’s handmade, 100-percent ground chuck patties, served in an iconic, lively ’50s-themed diner setting. Other classic Teddy’s menu options include turkey, chicken or veggie burgers, fish or pastrami sandwiches and salads, as well as extra thick shakes made with fresh ice cream.

Teddy’s currently operates 11 locations in Hawaii. On the mainland, Teddy’s recently opened locations in Washington and Iowa, and soon, California and Texas. Teddy’s also has a location in Japan, and will add to their international growth by breaking ground in the Philippines.

Teddy’s Bigger Burgers franchises are currently available in all territories domestic and select international markets. Territories are being awarded now to qualified franchise prospects. Please visit for information about opening a franchise in your neighborhood.

The Teddy’s brand is built on the premise of a fun, ’50s style, high-energy burger joint that features burgers, old-fashioned extra-thick shakes, excellent customer service, unique local flavors and custom concoctions in every franchise.
