Applegreen to create over 80 jobs in Limerick with the opening of a new roadside service area

Posted on: 06 Mar 2024

Applegreen, one of Ireland’s leading roadside retailers, has officially opened its door to customers at a new location at the Clondrinagh Roundabout in Limerick, (V94E934) bringing over 80 new jobs to the local area, as part of an investment of €10 million. The service station will operate on a 24/7 basis, with the onsite restaurants open between 11am and 11pm.

The new location will provide a fully operational service-station forecourt and bring several exciting brands to Clondrinagh, including M&S Food, Braeburn Coffee, Subway, and a Bakewell deli, as well as a children’s play area. It will also boast a stand-alone Burger King Drive Thru and a Subway restaurant.


Through Applegreen’s partnership with M&S Food, the Applegreen at Clondrinagh will feature Irish customers’ favourite M&S Food ranges, including fresh fruit, salads, Irish sandwiches, great quality fresh flowers, and convenient lunch and dinner options. Ever-popular M&S treats, such as Percy Pig sweets, M&S cookies, and Colin the Caterpillar cakes, will also be available on-site. It will also feature a Click & Collect service for selected M&S Clothing and Home product ranges.


This is Applegreen’s eighth location for its highly successful partnership with M&S Food. Up to 15 additional M&S Food at Applegreen “shop-in-shop” stores are planned by the end of this year, rising to 60 over the next decade.


Applegreen’s exclusive partnership with M&S Food complements the company’s leading roadside proposition in the Irish market and brings the M&S Food range to a much wider Irish customer base.


The new service area at Clondrinagh will be Applegreen’s fourth location in Co Limerick and its thirtieth in Munster.


Applegreen Ireland Managing Director Fiona Matthews said: “The opening of the new Applegreen Clondrinagh service area is a landmark occasion for us and we are excited to bring Applegreen and our retail partners to the local area, thus creating over 80 new jobs. The award-winning M&S Food range is now available in Limerick for the first time, thanks to our innovative partnership and we know already that customers are very keen to sample the extensive range of M&S Food products available. This is really exciting for local customers and since we began our roll-out of partnership stores with M&S last year, we have seen a very positive customer reaction to the new range.


The new service area will also offer the local community a new stand-alone Burger King Drive Thru & Subway restaurant, Braeburn Coffee and Bakewell deli.  On top of all this, there will be ample space for customers on site, including the very popular children’s play area and we really look forward to welcoming people from today.”
