There's going to be a brand new place for locals to get their burger and fries fix very soon....

The first Supermac’s in Donegal is set to open in Donegal Town later this year.

Supermac’s is Ireland’s largest and fastest-growing indigenous fast food restaurant group with more than 100 eateries across Ireland.

The exact date of the opening has yet to be revealed but owner Pat McDonagh and his team have agreed a deal on the new outlet.

The new fast food takeaway, a favourite amongst many Irish food fans, will employ more than 20 people when it starts up its grills to cook its famous burgers and fries.

The first Supermac’s opened its doors as far back as 1978 in Main Street, Ballinasloe, Co. Galway.

Since then, Supermac’s has gone from strength to strength with a turnover well in excess of €82m and well over 2500 employees.

Supermac’s was founded by Pat McDonagh, the Company’s Managing Director and a school teacher by profession.

After five years of teaching in Kilrickle, Co. Galway, Pat spotted an opportunity in Ireland’s quick service restaurant business and decided to pursue it. Since then Supermac’s has become the success story of the Irish restaurant industry.

Pat is very much a “hands-on” manager and is highly involved in the day-to-day operation of the company. He is joined on the Board of Directors by his wife, Una, who is also actively involved in all company activities.

The company’s success is built on a unique menu, ideally suited to local tastes, using real food and food ingredients sourced locally wherever possible and enhanced by quality in every aspect of the operation. This quality philosophy has been recognised by the Gilbey’s Award for Food Excellence and the Excellence Ireland Hygiene Mark. The quality of service is underwritten by Supermac’s staff, who gives the restaurants their unique, friendly atmosphere.

It is for these reasons that Supermac’s has become the great success story it is and the great franchising opportunity it offers.
