Maxol has announced the opening of two new sites, including the largest in its 100 year history.
The forecourt convenience retailer said 80 jobs will be needed for the sites at the N3 at Mulhuddart, and Donabate in North East Dublin.
The permanent positions include retail supervisors, shop sales assistants and deli sales positions.
The Mulhuddart Services on the N3 – Maxol’s biggest ever site – is scheduled to open on Thursday March 31 and follows a €6 million investment on a 2.5 acre plot.
According to Maxol, it will offer the latest in forecourt design, a fully equipped truck stop, parking for over 80 vehicles, a full convenience offering and Moreish Café, which includes a number of new premium Irish food franchises.
The Donabate forecourt opens a week later on April 7 in North East Dublin, following an extensive refurbishment and investment of €2 million. The development will offer Maxol’s latest two-storey building design, with a particular focus on quality food service, featuring the latest Maxol Mace convenience store and a brand new ‘Moreish’ fresh food café.
Brian Donaldson, Maxol’s group general manager and CEO in-waiting, said: “The creation of 80 new permanent jobs will be of huge benefit to the areas and overall economy. We are delighted to be working with our new independent retail partners, Donal and Liam Fitzpatrick at Mulhuddart and Gerard and Fergal Ralph at Donabate.
“Maxol is, and always has been, about the people – about our customers that come through the doors.”
Mr Donaldson said that customer needs are no longer only about fuel or a convenience store, but the full forecourt service and quality fresh food for all times of the day.
“The consumer has always been our focus and will remain so with our planned future openings and redevelopments,” he said.
“Maxol M3 Mulhuddart Services will be a full destination site and our new franchises will greatly enhance our existing award winning offer. Donabate will have exceptional first class facilities and will be a comfortable and convenient destination for the local community, or for commuters looking to break up those longer journeys.”
The new service stations have both been developed by Weslin Construction, providing employment for an additional 100 people.
