One of Ireland’s most sustainable food businesses is looking to help local pubs get back on their feet.


No industry has been unaffected by the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic in Ireland, but the pub industry has been hit particularly hard.

Thousands of people in the industry were out of work for months, others lost their jobs entirely, while publicans up and down the country are facing into a completely new reality for their business into the foreseeable future and beyond.

With all that in mind, Camile Thai Kitchen, one of Ireland’s leading sustainable food businesses, want to help local pub owners throughout the country to breathe new life into their business and to provide much needed support for the hospitality industry in Ireland.

Check out our interview with Sligo publican and Camile franchisee Brian O'Sullivan here, to find out about his experiences converting his kitchen to a Camile franchise.


Camile are looking for pubs with unused or underused commercial kitchens with whom they can team up with by providing a licence and another way to trade during the pandemic via a home delivery revenue stream.

Camile are offering the opportunity to bring those kitchens back to life, with minimal capital expenditure.

Having done that with the minimum of fuss, they then want to drive sales for their healthy and delicious brand of Thai food, directly to the local community, either in their homes or at the restaurant table.


Delivery sales for Camile have increased by over 35% since social distancing measures were introduced, a figure that shows no sign of decreasing with habits built during lockdown likely to be maintained by the public well into the future.

Camile have identified high demand for food in 14 towns and cities in the Republic of Ireland and want to hear from publicans and restaurant owners in the following locations who would like to turn their underutilised commercial kitchen into a Camile conversion.

  • Athlone
  • Carlow
  • Clondalkin
  • Ballyfermot
  • Dundalk
  • Kilkenny
  • Ennis
  • Tralee
  • Killarney
  • Wexford
  • Letterkenny
  • Clonmel
  • Arklow

Camile are offering a strong, tested, uncomplicated model that they can graph onto eligible local businesses and exceptionally strong operations to have a new revenue stream up and running in a matter of weeks.
