Sprout & Co To Open New Outlet On Dublin's Dawson Street
Healthy fast food chain Sprout & Co is opening a new 70-seat outlet on Dublin's Dawson Street later this month.
The Sprout & Co business, which will be comprised of seven outlets when its new Dawson Street location opens, began in 2015 with a different, smaller outlet on Dawson Street, which has since closed.
Keen To Find Something Bigger
The Irish Independent quotes Sprout & Co co-founder Jack Kirwan as saying, "Dawson Street was a phenomenal store for us, so we were really keen to try and find something on the street, and find something that was a lot bigger.
"One of our biggest problems has been almost unlimited demand at peak times, with limited supply. With this store, we would have built it with technology in mind, so a big part of the store will be assigned for click-and-collect, and we will also be putting in an extra production line to service that.
"Some 25% of our sales are coming in via mobile now, and it was less than 5% two years ago, so there has been a huge shift in the restaurant industry generally.
"We have designed this store to take as much business as we can for people who are willing to queue, and also from those who are in a rush."
