If you are a fan of Supermac’s, then you might be happy to find out that Ireland’s popular fast food chain has received a nod of approval from a well-known news channel in the United States.
According to the Daily Mail, Fox News has named Supermac’s as one of the “must-try” fast food outlets around the world, which include Wimpy, Chefette, MOS Burger, and Nordsee.
It was said that the fast food outlet’s wide selection of French fries and the fact that Supermac’s claims to have pioneered curry chips and the snack box craze in the Republic sealed the deal for Fox News.
The line up of French fries that got the US channel tipping its hat for Supermac’s include its curry fries, garlic fries, coleslaw fries, cheese fries, and taco fries. Fox News also loved Supermac’s garlic and cheese fries, and curry and cheese fries combos.
Pat McDonagh, managing director at Supermac’s, was very happy with the latest development and called Fox News’ citation as a “great honour.” He said the Supermac’s family was happy that the brand is garnering attention outside of Ireland.
“It’s a great honour to be considered one of the best fast food restaurants in the world. We’re delighted to welcome many visitors from overseas into the restaurant every year. I’m thrilled to hear that our reputation has travelled far and wide and that Fox News is endorsing Supermac’s as a must-visit dining experience in Ireland,” said McDonagh.
Supermac’s, which is founded in 1978 in County Galway, currently operates over 100 restaurants in most major cities and towns throughout Ireland and Northern Ireland. As of late, the fast food chain has plans to establish branches outside the country, particularly in Australia, where there are thousands of Irish emigrants working and living there. It was reported that the company’s Australian expansion is already at an advanced stage.
And just recently, the fast food chain launched a major marketing campaign in New York. Supermac’s slapped mouth-watering advertisements on billboards and signs in Times Square, inviting potential tourists to Ireland and asking them to “come for the scenery and stay for the food.” The fast food chain’s marketing blitz was said to be the most ambitious advertising campaign to come out of Ireland in recent years.
With Fox News’ citation, it is expected that the number of customers and fast food enthusiasts trooping Supermac’s doors will increase in the coming years.
