BRIAN Lee, co-founder and managing director of Freshly Chopped (@ChoppedIRL), the healthy food company, hasannounced the opening of Freshly Chopped Little Island.
It will be followed by a second Cork outlet later in the year. Freshly Chopped will be serving free salads in its Little Island outlet from 11am to 1pm on Tuesday, June 27.
The store will open at Spar in Eastgate Business Park. The new store will create 15 jobs and follows newly opened Freshly Chopped outlets in Galway and the first Northern Irish Freshly Chopped in Antrim.
Brian said: “We’re thrilled to be opening our first Freshly Chopped in Cork as our exciting journey moves south. We have been inundated with requests via social media to open in Cork and I am delighted to be able to meet our customers’ needs.
“We are looking forward to working hard to make sure our newest Freshly Chopped is as successful as our other outlets. We will be opening a second Freshly Chopped outlet in Cork city centre later this year and are also in talks with other potential franchisees for additional Cork stores. Cork will be a vital location for Freshly Chopped’s expansion over the next number of years as we continue our rollout across the country.”
Speaking at the announcement of the new outlet, Freshly Chopped franchisee Shane Cantillon of The Cantillon Group said: “We are looking forward to bringing an incredible offering to the people of Cork. Healthy eating is the future and Freshly Chopped is leading this revolution.”
The new outlet will feature Freshly Chopped’s new store design and menu. The new menu features nine new salads including Super Food Chicken, Hot Oak Smoked Salmon and Lebanese Falafel.
Freshly Chopped was developed to meet the needs of the growing number of Irish consumers who want a great tasting meal that is healthy, delicious, and fresh.
Everything about the distinctive grass clad interior exudes freshness and the visionary open theatre of food allows Freshly Chopped to offer a ‘create your own salad’ experience in front of the customer in minimum time.
