€560,000 investment sees 20 new jobs created At Lucan Road
Maxol has launched its first Asian cuisine restaurant Kanoodle, and also its fourth Freshly Chopped, the healthy fast food franchise, at the renovated fuel service station at Lucan Road. The renovation at Maxol Lucan Road opened jobs for 20 people and was a €560,000 investment.
The Kanoodle restaurant offers authentic Asian dishes including noodles, soups, salads, stir-fries and curries. The food franchise Freshly Chopped provides a range of freshly made-to-order salads, wraps, soups and juices.
Brian Donaldson, Maxol’s Group CEO said, “We look forward to strengthening our partnership with Brian Lee and Andy Chen of Freshly Chopped, who are joining us for the first time as licensees at Maxol. We are delighted to create 20 new jobs at Maxol Lucan after an investment of over half a million euros. This is our fourth Freshly Chopped franchise and the first Asian cuisine offering, by Kanoodle, to be introduced. Maxol Lucan is our fifth opening in 2017 and showcases our fast-evolving retail strategy to bring our customers a wide range of convenient, healthy food choices in modern and attractive surroundings.”
Brian Lee, co-founder and managing director of Freshly Chopped said, “We’re incredibly proud of our partnership with Maxol and we are delighted to have further strengthened this relationship. Becoming licensees and taking over the management of an already well-established Maxol location will provide us with the chance to learn about a new industry and apply some of the lessons we’ve learned building the Freshly Chopped brand. We set up Freshly Chopped in 2012, and the fact that this is our 26th outlet, only five years after opening our first store, is evidence that Ireland’s healthy eating revolution is still going strong. We’re looking forward to providing more customers across Ireland with the healthy eating choice they’re crying out for.” PWKD13062017
