Iain Finnegan of property agents Finnegan Mention has been retained by actors Mark and Donnie Wahlberg and chef Paul Wahlberg to scout locations for the brothers' burger chain, Wahlburgers, in Ireland.
The Sunday Business Post reports that with the announcement that the chain's first branch outside of North America will be located in Covent Garden, London, it has now set its sights on infiltrating the Irish market.
Co-owner Mark Wahlberg commented, "I've been to Dublin a few times and love the city. I'm confident visitors will embrace our family concept and the Wahlberg personal touch Paul puts into the menu. Our goal is to have a number of Wahlburgers restaurants across Ireland in the next ten years."
