The restaurant chain Five Guys has announced that it will open a new restaurant at Disneyland Paris in 2017. The announcement was made in an interview with Five Guys’ Head of Operations Maxime Lestringant on the French site meltyStyle.fr, where Lestringant confirmed: “at the beginning of 2017 we will also open a Five Guys at Disney Village.” The restaurant will employ 100 people. During the summer of 2016, Five Guys has opened a restaurant in Paris, in the area of Bercy, but the number of people employed at this unit is currently unknown. Another restaurant will be opening on the "Champs Elyséees" in Paris by the end of 2016 with 150 employees, while another restaurant opening is also expected near the Gare du Nord in Paris in 2017. Five Guys has 1,350 restaurants worldwide (1,300 in the United States) and employs 40,000 people. The group expects to open 40 new restaurants over the next three years.
