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 his company is “incredibly proud of its partnership with Maxol.
“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 our own 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.”
More investment is planned at a further 11 locations within the Maxol service station network for the remainder of 2017.
