The 4 Lanterns is a great example of a family run business, that has moved with the times & adapted to ever changing trends. From the beginning the 4 Lanterns have always been a family concern. Frank Grimes & his 3 brothers, with the support of their parents invested in their first outlet in Sligo. They learnt everything about the fast food business & opened Sligo in 1970, 40 years ago this year. In 1977 Lower Main Street Letterkenny opened followed over the years with shops on Port Rd. Letterkenny, Buncrana, Donegal Town & recently opened Ballybofey.
The reputation of the 4 Lanterns brand remains as strong today as it did 40 years ago. There is probably know one, who has visited the North West of Ireland that hasn’t had a Big 4 or a Snack Box as is evidence in the photographs across our facebook page.
