Toast, a tech company focused on the restaurant industry, is to create 120 new jobs in Dublin.

The business, which is based in the United States, is hiring staff in the areas of software engineering, data analytics, product design and software development.

The announcement was made as it opened a new office on Dublin's Westmoreland Street.

Toast already employs more than 40 people here, across engineering, development and support roles.

Hugh Scandrett, senior vice-president of engineering at Toast, said: "The response to placing our first international office in Dublin has been positive, and we look forward to growing our presence here."

He added: "Dublin is a recognised technology hub in Europe, which makes it the right location for our investment in this great new office."

The company is being supported by the Government through IDA Ireland.

Founded in 2011 and launched in 2013, the group helps restaurants streamline operations and increase revenue by combining point-of-sale, front-of-house, back-of-house, and guest-facing technology. Last year, it secured Series D funding of $115m (€103m), valuing it at $1.4bn.

The move was welcomed by Minister for Business Heather Humphreys.
