Burgers and Papa Johns pizzas will be on the dinner menu for many Donegal people this weekend as the brand new Supermac’s store opens its doors.

The complex, which began construction last autumn, includes a two-storey Supermac’s Restaurant, drive-thru facility, a retail convenience store, car and HGV fuelling pumps.Supermac’s has over 100 family restaurants across Ireland. Recent expansion has created 400 jobs with six new outlets in 2018.Supermac‘s M.D. Pat McDonagh, said that the new store openings were being driven by customer demand. “The success of our fresh range of fresh, never frozen, beef and chicken has meant that we are opening several new outlets throughout the country to meet customer demand with more planned later in the year,” he said.There will be more excitement at the Donegal Supermac’s outlet in September when it hosts the launch of the Cannonball Supercar Spectacle.
