Topaz will create 110 new jobs with the opening of two new service stations in Clonshaugh, Dublin and Ballacolla in Laois.
The service station at Northern Cross in Clonshaugh, near Dublin Airport, has been opened with the help of footballer Stephanie Roche and retired Munster rugby player Alan Quinlan. Topaz will directly employ 45 there, but a further 20 jobs will be created by Supermac's, which has opened a family restaurant and drive through, and a Papa John's Pizza restaurant at the station.
Paul Candon, Group Marketing Director at Topaz, commented on the opening, "We're looking forward to welcoming our new customers to Clonshaugh and want to thank and wish our staff all the very best as they continue to deliver top quality customer care the local community and road users travelling through the area."
The Northern Cross branch will feature Topaz' new retail concept Re:Store, which will see it offer barista coffee, and a range of fresh foods and treats. It will also offer free Wi-Fi, electric vehicle chargers, a car wash, parking and truck fuelling, as well as access to Topaz' loyalty scheme 'Play or Park.'
The Ballacolla station, located at junction 3 on the M8 Dublin to Cork roadway is due to open on the 9th of February and will create up to 65 new jobs for the region. Both sites will serve an estimated 50,000 motorists each day.
