The first Supermacs opened its doors in 1978 on Main Street, Ballinasloe, Co. Galway. Since that first opening, Supermac’s restaurants have become a firm fixture in towns and cities around Ireland. This family-owned company is the largest indigenous fast food restaurant group with a policy of continued expansion and growth.
The managing director of Supermac’s, Pat McDonagh, identified an opportunity in the locality for a fast food offering while teaching in Kilrickle in Co. Galway. From that first opportunity in Ballinasloe, Supermac’s has grown steadily, bringing its unique brand of wholesomeness and attention to detail to its chain of restaurants across Ireland. The success of the company can be attributed to a number of factors, including a unique and innovative menu, a commitment to quality across all aspects of the business and a strong work ethic, which all define Supermac’s as the number one franchise in Ireland.
