Co-founders and directors, David and Stephen Flynn commented: "This is a really great development and this collaboration is a very exciting move for our business. We’re really delighted to be bringing The Happy Pear to this incredible new centre, which is rich in history and culture and will provide a real focal point for the village. We’re really looking forward to making healthy food even more accessible in South Dublin County and to making a positive impact on the local community and economy, by providing exciting new employment opportunities.
"We can’t wait to open the doors and meet everyone from the community, and of course breakfast is on us – we’ll continue our long-standing tradition of providing free, organic porridge every morning in the new cafe."
