McDonald's to invest €20m in Irish operations, with 700 new jobs on the way01/11/2012 - 10:52:05
McDonald’s is to create 700 jobs with a €20m investment in its Irish operations.
Earlier this morning, it was reported that the fast food giant would create 500 jobs.
The jobs will be created through the opening of up to 12 new restaurants between now and the end of 2015.
Recruitment for the positions will start in January on the McDonald’s website.
Adrian Crean, Managing Director of McDonald’s Ireland said: “This investment in our Irish operations in our 35th year of doing business here in Ireland highlights the strength of our business.
"We take pride in our consistent creation of quality jobs with the associated economic multiplier effect, throughout a difficult economic period."
Meanwhile, Minister of State for Small Business at the Department of Enterprise, Jobs and Innovation John Perry added: “This announcement by McDonald’s Ireland is very positive news. McDonald’s is not only directly creating a very significant number of jobs in the food service industry, it is also helping to secure jobs and create employment indirectly, through the Irish goods and services it purchases for domestic use and for export.
"Many of McDonald’s restaurants are operated by franchisees who are small business owners and who, working with McDonald’s, have developed successful business while creating jobs in their communities across the country."
