Maxol has officially launched its new Moreish menu and café at MaxolAdamstown, located at Newcastle Road in Lucan. At a special lunchtime event, the Maxol service station’s Moreish staff were joined by well-known food bloggers ‘Ilovecooking.ie’, who conducted food demonstrations and offered tips to hundreds of customers for choosing healthy and delicious lunches, a key focus of Maxol’s Moreish fresh food offering.
The FM104 Beetle Bug crew were also on hand to take customers through the Moreish “Three steps to food heaven,” as well as running customer competitions for exciting prizes including hotel breaks, free fuel fills, car washes and other treats.
Maxol Adamstown’s new store format presents customers with a bright, contemporary and comfortable environment for convenience and fresh food shopping or relaxing in the café.
Speaking at the official launch, Fergal Harrington, Group Brand Development Manager commented, “We were thrilled with the turnout on Friday, at our new Moreish café in Adamstown. We are constantly looking at ways we can improve our customer offering and today, more than ever, fresh and healthy choices are an absolute must.
“We want our customers to have plenty of choice right down to what type of bread they prefer – not just white or brown – instore we have an incredible 12 choices!
“Today’s consumers have unprecedented choice of where and what to eat and why shouldn't they? We want Moreish to always be the destination for deliciously fresh food and our customer experience to be an excellent one with highest possible standards on our forecourts, in our stores and in our Moreish cafes.”
Sarah Woods, food expert with Ilovecooking.ie commented, “We’re delighted to be part of this initiative with Maxol and Moreish, and we’re very impressed with the variety of healthy and delicious options on the new Moreish menu. We always encourage our readers and followers to maintain a healthy, balanced diet and while other service stations are lacking healthy choices, it’s great to see Maxol and Moreish paving the way to a much fuller menu with plenty of healthy alternatives.”
Moreish offers an extensive hot and cold deli menu for all times of the day, an exclusive range of speciality sandwiches, low calorie salads and healthy treats and both barista and self-serve coffee and speciality teas.
The remodelled Adamstown store is part of Maxol’s ongoing €50million investment in its network of stores and forecourts across Ireland. Maxol Adamstown is one of 30 Moreish deli/cafes across Ireland.
