By DANIEL WALLACE, News24.com Denny’s is set to open its first delivery centre in Dublin on Mother’s Day, offering delivery services for women in their 50s and 60s.
The new business will offer “delivery for women of all ages” at an address in Dublin’s east end, according to the company’s website.
It is expected to have around 400 delivery drivers.
“We want to deliver for women who want to make sure they are not left behind or to have a safe delivery experience, said a spokesperson for the company.
The company is owned by a family trust, which is also a major shareholder in the company, which was founded in 2008 by Denny and his wife.
In a statement, the company said: “We are thrilled to open our first delivery service on Mother the 31st of April and to offer our services to the Irish public for the first time.”
Our aim is to offer a convenient and personalised delivery experience for our customers.”
It’s important that we do not leave women behind and make our delivery experience as simple and hassle-free as possible, so we have developed a new approach to delivering services on Mother Day.
“Denny said the idea to open up the business came from his mother who had told him the city had not been the same after the election.
He said: ‘She said to me, you know what, this is the only place that you can go, you can have your cake and eat it, you’ve got a cup of coffee and a pie.’
You’ve got to go out and get your food, go to the shops and make a little bit of money.’
I thought, well, that’s what’s happened to me.’
This is the way I’ve always done it.’
But my mum didn’t say that, and I didn’t think about it.”
I went to work every day and I went to school every day, I had to have my baby and it was the same.
“So it’s been a little while since I’ve seen the city change and I just wanted to do something that I could do for my mother and for my country, for the whole of Ireland.”
Dixie’s delivery service has been in operation for more than a decade.
In 2015, Dixie’s moved its delivery business from its Cork base to Dublin after being purchased by Dixie Group Holdings Limited, which also owns the national chain of restaurants.
