Alex Scicluna (Cafe' Jubilee)

In 1989, Alex enrolled at the Institute of Tourism Studies as a full time student in Hotel Management.  After a brief time working in a five star hotel in Malta, he decided that it was time to open his first business. Otters, a seaside restaurant in Marsalforn, Gozo opened its doors in Summer of 1995. His brothers, Mario and Anthony joined him and all three decided to launch a new concept. Café Jubilee, Victoria welcomed its first guests in 1998. Two years later, Alex decided that it was time to go across the island and open the second Café Jubilee in Valletta. Malta welcomed Café Jubilee with open arms and it became the place to be in Valletta. There was another opportunity to open the third Café Jubilee but the space had to be larger as the loyal customers’ list was steadily growing!  Café Jubilee Gzira opened in 2005. It s now time to launch and establish Jubilee International - the first international Café Jubilee in partnership with Corinthia Group is set to open in Budapest in January 2010.

In conjunction with the growth of Café Jubilee, in 2000, Alex established another company, Jubilee Foods Manufacturing where traditional home made and genuine foods, are prepared for all outlets, including the famous Nanna’s Ravioli. Customers fell in love with these food items and were seeking to buy these ready to cook food items from Café Jubilee for them to take home.  This year, Jubilee Foods Retail was launched onto the market and two shops are currently open, one in Ibragg and another in Victoria.  The third Jubilee Foods shop will open at the end of this month, in Pavi Complex, Qormi.
