Happy Pear Owners Considering Seeking Outside Investment

The owners of Irish healthy-eating/café brand The Happy Pear are currently contemplating whether to take on outside investment to help boost the business's growth.

Company co-owner Stephen Flynn told The Irish Independent that he anticipates the firm's revenues will rise to €10 million this year, and that he and his brothers/company co-owners David, Mark and Darragh are considering options to support further expansion, including seeking outside investors.

"Working It Out"

Flynn told the paper, "The cost of growth generally is expensive, so we're kind of working it out and trying to see what's most appropriate for where we're at right now."

On top of producing a range of healthy food products, The Happy Pear also operates three cafés in Ireland at present, two of which are in the Co. Wicklow town of Greystones and one of which is in the Dublin suburb of Clondalkin.
