Le Pain Quotidien began as an organic bakery in Brussels 25 years ago and now operates across five continents

Global restaurant and boulangerie, Le Pain Quotidien, opens the doors of it’s first Irish location today.

The launch today in Kildare Village represents the beginning of a wider expansion in to Ireland. The restaurant plans to open further outlets across Dublin over the next two years which will provide at least 120 new jobs.

Le Pain Quotidien has gone from humble beginnings as an organic bakery in Brussels 25 years ago to a global community with over 200 restaurants in 17 countries.

Le Pain Quotidien supports Irish suppliers and commits to sourcing local, seasonal and fresh and organic produce.

Speaking about the opening of the Kildare Village restaurant, Peter Jenkins, Managing Director of Le Pain Quotidien spoke about Irish consumers and new tastes, “It is an exciting time for the Irish food and beverage market, with rapid growth and a discerning customer base. We have noticed that there is a growing increase in knowledge, awareness and demand for what Le Pain Quotidien has to offer.”

Mr Jenkins went on to explain why that location was chosen, “Kildare Village represents the perfect fit for us for our first location. Visitors to Kildare will know us from London, Paris, New York, Brussels and other key locations from around the world. With the growth of the Village comes a demand from visitors for an environment they feel comfortable in that delivers quality, healthy and nutritional food.”

Le Pain Quotidien at Kildare Village represents part of the Phase 2 expansion which will be open by Christmas 2015. The expansion will add a total of 36 new boutiques of international brands, bringing the total number in the Village to 100. The expansion will add an additional 5,544 square metres to Kildare Village, increasing the total size to 16,570 square metres.
