New Douglas branch opened by rapidly expanding fudi&more

Cork Eatery fudi&more Serves Up Third Helping:
New Douglas Branch Open for Business

Yesterday, fudi&more® officially opened the doors to the company’s new eatery in St Patrick’s Woolen Mills, Douglas, less than one year after the ribbon was cut at their second location in Eden Hall on the Model Farm Road.

 The demand for their food and service has accelerated the company’s expansion and plans are already in place to open another location north of the city by summer 2019. Fudi&more cook to order a wide range of global cuisine, including traditional Asian street food, classical Chinese and Italian favourites using seasonal organic ingredients. The company delivers fresh food with the option of organic wine pairing directly to your door. Their mission is to provide Cork with a one stop drop for a healthier, hassle-free life.

On the menu for the opening event was a wide range of delicious bites from fudi&more’s Douglas menu, incorporating global-inspired cuisine from Italy, China and many exotic destinations in between. All food served on the night was prepared the ‘fudi’ way; using locally sourced (organic Kilbrack Farm are a key supplier), organic produce and with fresh, healthy and clean eating in mind.

While entertainment on the night was provided by well-known sax player, Sello Moeketsi, guests took advantage of the bubbly reception to toast the company’s success.

Dignitaries and special guests attended the evening opening, including Deputy Lord Mayor of Cork, Cllr Des Cahill, who commended the team on their success and positive impact on the local economy. While all three branches combined have generated an estimated €2 million investment, in excess of 85 jobs have also been created, thanks to employment opportunities in their Marina Commercial Park premises, their popular eatery in Eden Hall and now, their brand-new dine-in restaurant in bustling Douglas Village. Furthermore, since fudi&more opened on Model Farm Road in April of 2018, the company’s original customer base has grown by a staggering 120 per cent in 10 months – validating the demand for good, fast, clean food.

With locally foraged ingredients forming the basis of their stock cupboards, along with menus created by international chefs and nutritionists, it’s little wonder that a large part of their client base centres around a health-conscious student demographic, especially at their Edel Hall branch. While their Marina-based premises caters for Fudi fans in a delivery capacity only, the new Douglas eatery will bring the fudi&more experience to a new level, offering customers the chance to dine in while they enjoy their favourite dishes, freshly served.

Speaking at the exclusive opening event, Tom Ren, CEO of fudi&more was clearly excited at what the future holds for the company. “If you had told me last year at the launch of our Eden Hall branch that we would be back, less than a year later, opening a third branch, I would have been a little bit skeptical!” he laughed.

“However, our success since we initially started out in 2017 has truly been phenomenal, so by now I know that if the hard work is done, then anything is possible. Our success of course comes down to the fact that our customers love what we do and really appreciate and enjoy our food, but it is also a result of the careful thought put in to each of our dishes. We are passionate about fresh food and believe that people with busy lifestyles should have the opportunity to eat healthy and nutritious food. We are also extremely lucky to have some of the best produce in the world on our doorstep, which certainly makes our job a lot easier.”

He added: “We hope to continue and grow the fudi&more name with the launch of our Douglas restaurant and look forward to welcoming new and regular customers in the coming months. We will now be able to offer our service to approximately 70 percent of the Cork city market with a goal to increase that to 100 percent by the end of 2019.”
