Supermac’s Tullamore was the recipient of a Supermac’s All Stars Awards at an event in the Lough Rea Hotel and Spa, Co. Galway. Ciarán Stewart and his team won the award for Local Store Marketing of the Year.
Speaking at the event Supermac’s MD, Pat McDonagh, paid tribute to the Tullamore team by saying that the outstanding achievement reflected the hard work that is needed in the current market. “Ciaran and the team in Tullamore are very active locally and Ciaran has become embedded in the Tullamore area and community having sponsored and coached some local teams for both men’s and women’s and boys and girls in the area,” Mr McDonagh said. “Being an All-Stars winner is due to the hard work of all the staff and the loyalty of our customers over the years. 40 years ago, Supermac’s 1st opened its door in Ballinasloe and a year later made its first venture outside of County Galway by opening an outlet on O’Connell St in Ennis. This year, we aim to open further restaurants throughout the country.”
The group currently employs over 2,700 people throughout the country. Supermac’s also operates Papa John’s Pizza, SuperSubs and Macs Place Diners. The Só Hotel Group as well as the Claddagh Group of Pubs in the United States are also owned by Pat and Úna McDonagh. The Athlone Springs and The Castle Oaks Hotel in Castleconnell was recently added to the Só Hotel Group.
