A popular fast-food restaurant on Washington Street in the city centre has announced it has ceased trading with immediate effect.
In a post on social media yesterday evening, West Cork Burger Company said it had “no choice” but to shut up shop.
“Dear Cork, we never wanted to make a post like this but unfortunately we’ve got no choice.
“Our lease on No. 6 Washington Street was up and unfortunately not able to be renewed,” the team said.
“We’ve been on an absolutely amazing journey these last few years.
“But it was only possible because of you, the people of Cork!
“We could not have done anything without you.
“You are all truly appreciated and we are grateful for everyone we got to meet on this brilliant adventure,” the business added.
In terms of its future plans, West Cork Burger Company said unfortunately the business is “closed indefinitely”.
“However, the world is filled with ups and downs and twists and turns.
“Nobody truly knows what the next chapter might bring,” they added.
The business appealed to its customers to continue to follow its social media pages in case of any future updates.
