Apache Pizza officially opened its 200th store this week, in Longford Town, where local franchisee Talwinder Singh also achieved the distinction of becoming the 3,000th employee to work with the popular pizza chain.
The new store, at Weavers’ Hall, is the 16th Apache Pizza store to open so far this year and will be followed by three new-store openings across counties Wicklow, Galway and Antrim.
The pizza chain is planning to pursue a rapid expansion strategy that is set to deliver 50 new jobs before the end of the year.
“I’m thrilled to open Apache Pizza’s 200th store, to become its 3,000th employee, and to bring this hugely popular pizza brand to Longford Town,” said Singh at the official opening.
“I look forward to being part of the local business community and to serving our great-tasting pizzas.”
The 50 new jobs at Apache Pizza include positions for supervisors, managers, customer service representatives, and delivery couriers.
The brand is also seeking new franchisees.
‘Growth And Expansion’
“Our continued growth and expansion is down to being local to homes, businesses, schools and universities, and our ‘we love extra’ way of doing things, offering generous toppings, dips, ingredients, flavour and value to our customers,” said Martin Lyons, CEO of Apache Pizza.
Apache Pizza is celebrating its growth and expansion with the return of the Really Big Deal, which includes a large pizza and garlic bread, any chicken, chips and a dip for just €25.99, along with the launch of its limited-edition 425ml large garlic sauce bottle, which is available at all stores for €5.95.
