Irish family restaurant chain Supermac’s is to create 200 jobs in Cork with the opening of three new outlets.

The first of the three outlets, which is located Ballyvolane in Cork, will open in the coming weeks.

This will be followed by the opening of two further outlets, one on the Bandon Road and the other in Tivoli in Cork.

These three restaurants will bring to 13 the total amount of outlets the company has in Cork city and county.

Commenting on the announcement, Supermac’s managing director Pat McDonagh said that the group had been “delighted” with the response to its recruitment drive in Cork for the new openings.

"We have career opportunities at all levels and we are looking for managers, store managers, assistant managers and catering assistants," Mr McDonagh said.

"We have put structured career paths in place for staff that leads to store manager positions, as well as site managers and area managers and we want people that will stay with us and develop with us."

The chain, which first opened its doors in Ballinalsoe county Galway 40 years ago, currently employs over 2,700 people throughout the country.

This year, the group of family restaurants chain will open six new outlets in the first half of 2018, bringing the total amount of outlets to 114.

Earlier this year the group said that it was committing to spending €32m on Irish produce over the course of the year. The group's expansion plans has largely driven the increase spend on beef, chicken and vegetables.
