A popular multi-award winning healthy fast food chain is coming to Dublin.

LEON will be landing in the city centre in the first half of 2019 followed by another outlet in Dundrum Town Centre.

The London-based pioneer of a new way to live and eat well, plans to open 20 new restaurants nationwide by 2023.

LEON’s approach to fast food is based around the proven health benefits of the Mediterranean diet, and their aim is to create fast food that not only tastes good, but makes you feel good too.

With a menu full of plants, fresh herbs, spices, good fats from olive oil, seeds, nuts and well sourced meat, LEON has been built on ingredients that are good for you, affordable and kind to the planet.

The man responsible for bringing LEON to Ireland is Waterford accountant Stuart Fitzgerald and his business partner Brian McIntyre.

Stuart said: “The LEON concept is completely new in Ireland.

“Irish people have certain ideas of what fast food means, but this is going to blow those out of the water.

“LEON is all about really flavoursome food, served to you fast with friendly, fun service in a warm and welcoming environment.

“And we are delighted to have already secured an outlet in Dundrum Town Centre in the Upper Pembroke District – an iconic location and a perfect fit for our brand experience.”
