Pizza lovers in Lisburn are celebrating the news that Four Star Pizza has opened its first takeaway and restaurant in the town with a £150,000 investment which will create 30 new jobs in the area.
The new store, which officially opened its doors on the Nettlehill Road in Lisburn this week, is the pizza chain’s 54th location across the island of Ireland and is expected to deliver more than 80,000 FRESH PIZZAS to homes in the Lisburn area over the next 12 months – using OVER ONE MILLION pepperoni slices, 10 TONNES of cheese and 17 TONNES of flour in the process.
Scott Higginson, Managing Director of the Lisburn store, as well as other Four Star Pizza franchises in Belfast, Newtownabbey and Carrickfergus, is confident that the new store will go down a treat with locals and explained that the Lisburn location has been a long time in the making.
“I’m absolutely delighted to announce that we have now officially opened our new store in Lisburn. We have invested over £150,000 into the new store, and we’re really pleased that we can contribute to the local economy with 30 new jobs for store staff and delivery drivers to help us meet the demand from customers in the area,” said Scott.
“We’ve been wanting to open a store in Lisburn for some time now because we’ve always known that there is a real demand for Four Star Pizza here, and now that we have the right location, we can’t wait to start serving up some honest pizza to the people of Lisburn!” he added.
And when it comes to tickling the taste-buds of local pizza aficionados, Scott believes that the secret to a perfect pizza is ‘all about the base’.
“What will surprise a lot of our customers is that we actually make our own dough, fresh in store, each and every single day. That’s what makes a big difference between us and our competitors when it comes down to the crucial taste test.”
To celebrate the new store, Scott and his team are offering customers the chance to win themselves some tasty prizes all week on the store’s Facebook page.
