The founders of grilled cheese spot Griolladh are celebrating the success of their lockdown start up with a charity walk in aid of The Capuchin Day Centre.
Jacob Long and Jack Brennan set up the grilled cheese food truck in Malahide and now have five locations across Dublin and have a staff of 40. They also have more openings planned, including a Dundrum location in July.
This Saturday, June 19, the pair will walk from Griolladh in Bray, beginning at 8.00am and walk 45k to Malahide where they opened their first food truck last year.
Speaking about the event, Jacob Long said: “The Capuchin Day Centre goes the distance so that no one goes hungry. We were looking for a way to mark a great first year for our fledgling food business and what better way to show our gratitude for the support we’ve received than to support their work with homeless people and those in need,”
He added: “It’ll be a long day and a long walk, but we plan to liven it up by logging our progress on social media, and a few friends will join us along the way.”
Donations for the walk are welcome at www.justgiving.com/fundraising/griolladh. A percentage of Griolladh sales from the week of the walk will be donated and Griolladh will also match the amounts donated in the collection boxes at each of their 5 locations.
