Donegal has finally got its first Supermac's branch
The Irish-brand fast-food restaurant brings 60 new jobs to the area.
As of 2.30pm on Thursday 1 November, Donegal will finally have its own branch on Supermac's.
Set to be opened by Donegal footballer Michael Murphy, the branch will be located at the new Supermac’s Donegal Service Station at Drumlonagher, just outside Donegal Town.
This marks the 116th branch of the fast-food chain in Ireland, but it's the very first one to open up in the hills of Donegal.
Supermac’s MD, Pat McDonagh, said: "We have been inundated for years by people from Donegal to open in the county. Once the right site was found the decision was clear. What makes Supermac’s different is our commitment to the communities we are involved with.
"Not only do we provide sustainable jobs but we become active members of the community as well. I look forward to working with Ken [Foley, Supermac's Franchisee] and his team to help them achieve that in Donegal."
Ken Foley said: "We are delighted to be the first Supermac’s outlet in Donegal and like all the Supermac’s outlets throughout the country, it is important that we are part of the community here. The creation of 60 jobs is a part of that and having good staff and a good team around you is one of the key ingredients for success in a business like this.
"Another key ingredient is the positivity that is in the area and there is a great buzz about the North West now that I haven’t seen in a while. People are on the move. The Wild Atlantic Way has had a huge effect on the tourist trade and there are more people at work."
