The total value of the investment in the new restaurant is €1.7 million.
The McDonald’s Gorey restaurant will be operated by franchisee Amir Afsar, who owns 11 other McDonald’s restaurants in Dublin and Wicklow, including the Grafton Street franchise.
The new restaurant will employ over 50 people, of which 45 of those will be new hires, providing a significant boost to local economy in the area. The McDonald’s Gorey restaurant will also offer table service to its customers.
Speaking about the restaurant opening, Amir Afsar, who has been a franchisee for over 18 years, told WexfordToday.com; “I am very excited to open this new restaurant in Gorey and we can’t wait to welcome the customers through our doors. It is important that our customers can access the best family-friendly facilities and services on offer and this new restaurant in Gorey provides that in abundance.
“The restaurant features self-order kiosks which will allow customers to make more personalised food choices. Most importantly, we will serve made-to-order meals using the best quality ingredients, in the most efficient time possible.”
Sarah Carter, Director of Franchising and Operations for McDonald’s in Ireland said; “It is a great honour to be opening our 93rd restaurant in Ireland. In the 42 years since McDonald’s opened its first restaurant on Grafton Street, it has become a fixture in towns and cities across the country, creating employment, investing in local communities and supporting Irish food suppliers.”
Like all McDonald’s restaurants across Ireland, the beef, bacon, milk, water and eggs served in McDonalds Gorey will be 100% Irish.
