With the announcement that Yelp UK is opening its sales office in London and creating over 100 new jobs in the city, Prince Andrew, The Duke of York checked-in to meet the management team and celebrate the announcement with the employees.

The largest urban zone in the European Union, a population of almost 8 Million people and host to a thriving Yelp community since January 2009, London is a city that can now also add the accolade of hosting the newest Yelp office!

The Duke of York has long been an ambassador for foreign investment in the UK and expressed his pleasure at the fact that “Yelp has decided to invest further in the UK and use it as the gateway to Europe as it continues to deliver on its impressive international expansion plans”.

We are honoured to have hosted His Royal Highness the Duke of York and we are excited about this next chapter in Yelp’s evolution, especially as the UK becomes an important piece of our European expansion plans.
