Monterey Jack’s is an award-winning American-themed burger bar and restaurant serving top-quality food and drink at affordable prices.

Our menus offer an amazing selection of mouth-watering twists on everyone’s favourite North American classics such as gourmet burgers (voted Scotland’s best in 2019-21), gourmet dawgs, nachos, chicken, and pizzas, as well as an irresistible premium spirit fresh cocktails, shakes and sweet sundaes.  We also offer nearly 20 different vegan burgers and puddings that can be free of everything but flavour!

Old West Waggon Wheels, Water Barrels, Horseshoes, Mounted Longhorns and Chunky Wood furniture give every Monterey Jacks a fun, welcoming, relaxing atmosphere where our guests make themselves at home. Our restaurants also have great outdoor dining and drinks facilities.

And we’re green – sustainability at Monterey Jacks means 100% recyclable packaging.

Monterey Jack’s is so much more than the sign above the door – it’s a well-oiled, guest dazzling, hospitality express train perfected over many years and successfully replicated time and time again in carefully chosen locations. Our customers keep coming back as our culture never allows us to forget that this is all about them. It’s their time, and whether it’s to unwind after work, go BIG for a best friend’s birthday or sit around a packed table with all the family, they know their local Monterey Jack’s team won’t let them down.

We also deliver the same restaurant quality food and drinks to customer’s doors; order and pay online and we offer the choice of both collection and delivery service. We escalated our on-line sales for 6 regional branches during Covid, achieving revenues of £4m over the pandemic, showing that Monterey Jacks is already a sharp shooter in the battle for online sales.

Monterey Jack’s Franchise Opportunity

Monterey Jack’s currently has restaurants in Scotland – Airdrie, Dunfermline, East Kilbride (Opening soon), Falkirk, Glasgow Central, Glasgow (The Fort), Hamilton, Perth and Stirling – and we are now looking to expand our award-wining model across the UK.

We’ve opened 8 restaurants in 6 years ourselves (without the Covid restrictions we would be at 12) so we are a brand that’s on the way up with a proven business model and slick take away, collection and delivery options.

As one of the fastest growing bar and restaurant groups, we have developed outstanding trade links and deals in place to allow you to open your very own MJ’s, benefitting from great discounts, outstanding marketing, methodology, training and all you would expect to make your own business a huge success.

Every restaurant has its own unique charm and personality, but the Monterey Jack's branding and theme is strong throughout. With seating for at least 250, you'll need a talented team and space for an efficient kitchen - all things we can talk about once you get in touch!

Suitable locations for your Monterey Jacks:

  • High Street
  • Retail Park
  • Shopping & Entertainment Centres

Many fantastic sites are now available across the UKperhaps you already know of one in your area? Perhaps you have one but just can’t find the right brand to get the best from it? Monterey Jack’s offer a wide range of fit out options to work in the best locations of all shapes and sizes.
