The group also owns the LoughRea Hotel and Spa, bringing to over 1,600 the amount of people employed in the county.
The Supermac’s and Plaza Group Managing Director, Pat McDonagh, said that the Plazas were proving to be a very popular option for customers looking for convenient, quality food.
“Both myself and Una are delighted to be opening a new facility in Loughrea where we have employed a lot of local staff and we look forward to welcoming people to the Loughrea Service Station in the coming weeks,” he said.
“Whether you are on the move for business or leisure or are going to the match, the Plazas provide the variety and quality that our customers are looking for and our Drive Thru option here at the Loughrea Service Station is a convenient new addition to what we can offer our customers in the area.” he said.
Supermac’s is Ireland’s largest indigenous quick service restaurant chain.
