A TOTAL of 15 new jobs will be created with the opening of a new health food shop on Camden Street.

Brian Lee, co-founder and managing director of Freshly Chopped, the healthy food company, announced the opening of Freshly Chopped Camden Street last week.

The opening of the store will open at 11 Camden Street Upper follows newly opened Freshly Chopped outlets in Galway, Cork, Castlebar and the first Northern Irish Freshly Chopped in Tannaghmore, Co Antrim. 

 “We’re delighted to be opening our new Freshly Chopped on Camden Street as our presence expands in Dublin,” Mr Lee said. “Our new store will serve the people working in the Camden Street and Harcourt Street area. It is clear that more and more Irish workers want affordable, healthy food options and that is exactly what our unique Freshly Chopped experience will be providing those working near our new Freshly Chopped outlet on Camden Street.

“It will also serve the many revellers who frequent Camden Street and with the ready availability of fast food in the area,” he added.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer consumers a nutritious alternative. Eating well is crucial for healthy living and we will work hard to attract young people to our innovative brand of nutritious fast food.

“Our stores cater for a diverse range of people, from five to 95. We are looking forward to working hard to make sure our newest Freshly Chopped is as successful as our other outlets.” 

Freshly Chopped, the healthy food company, is Ireland’s leading and original healthy fast food retailer.

Founded in 2012 by Lee and fellow Dublin entrepreneur, Andy Chen, Freshly Chopped was developed to meet the needs of the growing number of Irish consumers who want a great tasting meal that is healthy, delicious, and fresh.

Meanwhile, Fine Gael Senator, Neale Richmond, has welcomed the announcement that Google is set to expand its Irish operations with a planned move to offices in the Sandyford Business District.

"This is yet another big positive story for Sandyford following a number of recent job announcements as well as the creation of the Sandyford Business Improvement District,” Senator Richmond said.

“It is super news to learn that Google will move into offices in Sandyford as part of the expansion of their Irish operations.

"Sandyford is a brilliant place to live, work and do business in. I was fortunate to represent the area for seven years on Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council and I know the dynamic environment that is being created locally.

“Located close to the city centre, the Sandyford Business District is served by the Luas, a range of bus services and is close to both the M50 and N11,” Senator Richmond added.

“An International School will open its doors in the area in September 2018, further increasing the prospects for Sandyford.

"Sandyford has 1,000 companies and a workforce of 25,000. In Sandyford, Google will be neighbours with other multi-national tech companies.

"I am delighted and I am sure this announcement will be another in an ongoing series of good news stories for the Sandyford Business District."
