Camile Thai to create 220 new jobs in Ireland and open 15 new outlets
Irish takeaway restaurant chain Camile Thai has confirmed that it will create 220 new jobs in Ireland in 2021.
The chain, which currently has 35 outlets in Ireland and the UK, also intends to open 15 more across the two countries, with an additional 80 jobs being created in the UK.
The company said the new positions would be in retail, business development, marketing, sales, and cookery.
“Despite an extremely difficult year for the hospitality sector, for Camile 2020 has seen rapid growth," Brody Sweeney, Founder, Camile Thai Kitchen, said.
"Our suburban, delivery focussed model has proven to be pandemic proof in the last 11 months, not least in terms of revenue and sales. This has enabled us to not only push forward with our aggressive expansion plans, but also to prematurely move ahead with our main goal - our tech pivot.
“Our raison d’etre is delivering guilt-free, delicious takeaways - but for us, we see tech playing such an incremental role in terms of food preparation, but also UX and of course, delivery.”
The new Irish locations include outlets in The Point Village in Dublin, the new Frascati Centre in Blackrock, and several other locations in Waterford, Mayo, Dublin, and Cork.
Camile is also hoping to raise €10 million as part of its plans to progress with a technology-centric strategy.
Earlier this year, the company embraced delivery by drone and has further plans to integrate automated robotics into its kitchen operations this year.
