Pat and Una McDonagh, founders of much loved Irish food retailer Supermac’s are to develop three new motorway service stations. They will be rolled out across the next two years creating 220 new jobs. The announcement was made as work began on a new €8 million motorway service station on the M6.

The new Motorway Service Station at Junction 16 Kiltullagh Plaza has an opening date in early 2016 and will see the introduction of 100 new jobs. It will be the country’s largest motorway service station. As well as the tasty fresh fast food offerings Supermac’s are renowned for, it will also offer Deli, Bakery, Carvery, Pizza and SuperSubs as Supermac’s extend their brands beyond their core offering that they are most associated with.

A further 220 jobs at three more plaza sites will be developed over the next couple of years which will include Ennis and Limerick. They currently have 3 Motorway service stations in place, with encouraging news that they are in a position to double this over the forthcoming years with the creation of hundreds of new Irish jobs.
