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 their first branch in Sligo, over 40 years ago in 1970. In 1977, Lower Main Street Letterkenny opened followed over the years with shops on Port Road Letterkenny, Buncrana, Donegal Town and Ballybofey. The reputation of the 4 Lanterns brand remains as strong today as it did forty years ago.
There is probably no one, who has visited the North West Ireland that hasn't had a Big 4 or Snack Box.
