CHOPPED IS SET to create up to 120 jobs in six new outlets.

The healthy fast food chain has today announced a recruitment drive to fill up to 120 new positions across Dublin and Kildare.

The positions on offer, a mix of full and part-time roles, will service six new Chopped outlets opening in the next month. The chain is looking for store managers, supervisors, breakfast chefs and choppers.

Chopped initially announced that five new outlets would be opening, but later told Morning Ireland this number had been updated to six.

Aramark, which recently agreed to an exclusive five-year partnership with Chopped, will manage a new outlet at The Loop in Terminal One at Dublin Airport.

Chopped by Aramark will create 15 jobs with the opening of the new airport location on Monday, 24 October. The opening of this location will be the second Chopped outlet managed by Aramark.

Five other outlets will open over the next month in the Pavilions Shopping Centre in Swords, O’Connell Street, Talbot Street, Dundrum Shopping Centre and in the Whitewater Shopping Centre in Newbridge, Co Kildare. The new restaurants will join 13 existing Chopped outlets in Dublin.

‘Breakthrough year’ 

Andy Chen and Brian Lee founded the company, which makes salads and wraps, in 2012

Speaking at the announcement of the new outlets, Lee said: “2016 has been a real breakthrough year for Chopped. We had big ambitions coming into the year and it’s been amazing to see our company goals come to life and then some.

“Our vision and plan from the start was to have a Chopped in all the main shopping centres and on every high street and thoroughfare in Ireland.”
