It was announced today that healthy food company, Chopped will open a new outlet in UCD today.
Chopped was developed to meet the needs of the growing number of Irish consumers who want a great tasting meal that is healthy and fresh.
Chopped offers a ‘create your own salad’ experience in front of the customer in minimum time. Crisp lettuce selections, garden fresh vegetables, salad dressings and more than 30 ingredients are ‘chopped’ and freshly dressed into a unique salad bowl or in a sealed savoury wrap.
Furthermore, full calories are counted for each salad, wrap and sandwich and Chopped offers a delivery, collection, take-away and dine-in service with fast meal service times.
The new store will create 15 jobs and follows newly opened Chopped outlets in Dundrum Town Centre, The Loop at Dublin Airport and The Whitewater Shopping Centre Newbridge, Chopped’s first outlet outside Dublin.
The new Chopped outlet will be managed by Aramark, the global provider of award-winning services in food, facilities management and property, who entered a five-year strategic partnership with Chopped in 2016.
Speaking at the opening of Chopped UCD, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Chopped, Brian Lee said, "We’re delighted to be opening our newest Chopped at UCD. Students can choose from a wide range of healthy and tasty meals or snacks to fuel their academic endeavours. Ireland’s students are becoming more and more mindful of their nutrition and with UCD boasting some of the best young minds in the country we are pleased to be able to offer Chopped as a healthy nutritious option."
