Four Star Pizza opens 14th outlet in the north, creating 30 jobs
THE Dublin-based Four Star Pizza chain has opened its latest store in the north, creating 30 jobs.
Four Star officially opened the doors on a new £150,000 store on the Nettlehill Road in Lisburn this week. It is the pizza chain's 54th location across the island of Ireland and is expected to deliver more than 80,000 fresh pizzas to homes in the Lisburn area over the next 12 months - using over one million pepperoni slices, 10 tonnes of cheese and 17 tonnes of flour in the process.
Scott Higginson, who is managing director of the Lisburn store as well other franchises in Belfast, Newtownabbey and Carrickfergus, said the latest outlet has been a long time in the making.
"We've been wanting to open a store in Lisburn for some time now because we've always known that there is a real demand for Four Star Pizza here, and now that we have the right location, we can't wait to start serving up some honest pizza to the people of Lisburn," he said.
"We have invested over £150,000 into the new store, and we're really pleased that we can contribute to the local economy with 30 new jobs for store staff and delivery drivers to help us meet the demand from customers in the area."
To celebrate the new store, Four Star Pizza is offering customers the chance to win themselves prizes all week on the store's Facebook page.
Four Star Pizza is a wholly Irish-owned Pizza chain, established in 1988, and operates 54 stores across the island of Ireland, including 14 in the north.
Four Star Pizza's first Northern Ireland restaurant was opened in 1999 on Belfast's Beersbridge Road and other locations include Bangor, Coleraine, Carrickfergus, Newry, Drumahoe, Derry, Armagh and Newtownabbey.
