Hi!

I suggest googling, ex.: https://sharepoint.stackexchange.com/questions/164673/sharepoint-rest-api-getbytitle-with-ampersand-... or https://sharepoint.stackexchange.com/questions/167125/issue-with-symbol-in-rest-api. Have you tried the suggestions from the Google search results?

I found that one as well. Haven' tried myself, but Microsoft community claims it works:

Maybe this is something you can try out too. Maybe other on the forum have their suggestions?

I mean - I know you have already tried with %26, but maybe there is something else in your REST call you are missing? Maybe the ampersand is not the reason? What errors do you get? What is your query string, that you use for calls? Can you share it?
