Maxol Clonakilty was delighted to welcome Rachel Allen and Keith Barry last week for ‘Let’s Do Lunch!’ to celebrate some of the exciting food offers available on site from Abrakebabra, Bagel Factory, O’Brien’s Sandwich Café, and Maxol’s own speciality sandwich range, Moreish.
Customers were treated to a free lunch, along with some delicious samples from the food offerings in-store, and the Maxol team had lots more besides lunch to keep customers occupied. Cork's Red FM Street Team were in attendance with music and plenty of prizes up for grabs. A Spinning Wheel offered customers the chance to win great giveaways including dinner for two at Rachel Allen’s new restaurant “Rachel’s.” Master hypnotist Keith Barry was on hand to entertain customers with a special show.
Shane Cantillon, Maxol licensee at Clonakilty commented:
“At Maxol Clonakilty, we pride ourselves on offering our customers a delicious range of menus full of fresh and healthy options. Our customers are at the forefront of everything we do, which is why it was such a thrill to host ‘Let’s Do Lunch’ today. We had a great time and I hope our customers enjoyed a day full of fun, music and prizes.”
John Hadnett, Regional Manager at Maxol said:
“Having invested over €500,000 in the refurbishment of Maxol Clonakility, we were delighted to see such a large turnout of support for this ‘Let’s Do Lunch’ event. The investment has created fifteen new jobs in Clonakilty and added three new food offerings to our Moreish Deli range. Our aim in Maxol is always to offer customers first class service and a great forecourt convenience experience, and I’m confident we deliver that in Clonakility.’
