Fast food chain Supermac’s has confirmed it is to reopen its outlets on a phased basis, initially offering drive through, collection and delivery services.
The company had closed all its restaurants on 26th March, and said on Wednesday 22nd April that it would provide “A limited service in a number of outlets” following consultations with authorities, staff and its suppliers.
The move will be welcomed by suppliers and producers who work with Supermac’s as the company spends around €40m annually on Irish products.
The company has implimented a number of measures to ensure safety of customers and staff, including contactless payments only, mandatory gloves and masks for staff, and temperature checks for staff before they begin each shift.
Three outlets opened on Wednesday 22nd April, followed by 12 on Friday 24th April. There are currently 106 Supermac’s throughout the country.
“Since we closed on March 26th, we have spent that time developing systems and processes in order to open and provide a service to the community where safety, wellbeing and standards are not compromised. We would like to thank our customers and staff for their loyalty and understanding,” the company said in a statement.
