Freshly Chopped has today announced the opening of two new stores in Ireland and the UK.
The two new outlets will be located at Junction 14 in Monasterevin, Co Kildare, and HGS The Stage in Leicester in the UK, creating 10 jobs per outlet.
“When we founded Freshly Chopped in 2012, our mission was to make it as easy as possible for people to eat healthily and it’s encouraging that in spite of all that is happening we are continuing on this mission," said Brian Lee, co-founder and managing director of Chopped.
"There’s no doubt it has been a challenging few months for everyone but these two new outlets represent a belief that in a post-Covid world, people will want fresh, healthy food on the go even more.
First UK Franchise
Freshly Chopped’s new outlet in HGS The Stage in Leicester will be the only food offering in a forecourt opened by Joe Hockenhall and his son Peter of Hockenhall Garages Ltd.
This is the first franchise outlet for Freshly Chopped in the UK and follows the successful opening of a company-owned Freshly Chopped in Manchester in 2019.
“We believe there is still massive potential for growth in the UK. With thousands of motorists passing each day, our new outlet in Leicester will act as a shop window for more franchisees in the UK to get to know our offering better," Lee addd.
The company said that Freshly Chopped’s new outlet in Co Kildare is the third franchise outlet taken by The Lidon Group.
