Mang Inasal (Hiligaynon for Mr. Barbecue) is a barbecue fast food restaurant chain in the Philippines established in Iloilo City in 2003. It is one of the fastest growing food companies in country specializing in grilled chicken.

History[edit]

Mang Inasal restaurant in Pulilan, Bulacan

The company was started by Edgar Sia II, a young enterprising architect who owned his first business at the age of twenty. He engaged in the food business at twenty six years of age, opening the first Mang Inasal branch in December 2003 at the Robinson's Mall Carpark in Iloilo City. The restaurant was an instant success despite stiff competition from other more established grilled food restaurants. The branches were first opened in the Visayan region, then to neighboring Mindanao to its south, before spreading to Metro Manila. The company started franchising in 2005. By 2008, Mang Inasal had 23 restaurants opened, with ten being franchised.[2]

In October 2010, 70% of Mang Inasal was acquired by Jollibee Foods Corporation, the largest food chain company in the country, for P3 billion ($68.8 million).[3] As of March 2014, the chain has grown to about 460 stores.[1]

Products[edit]

The chain is open for lunch and dinner serving Filipino cuisine like grilled chicken, pork and milkfish served with rice (some stores offering unlimited rice). Non-grilled dishes include sisig, pansit bihon (Filipino thin noodles), dinuguan with puto. Desserts include Philippine snacks like ginataang bilo-bilo (tapioca pearls), Halo-halo, and others. Prices vary in selected stores.[4]
