The Four Star Pizza chain is celebrating 20 years in Northern Ireland.

The first  outlet opened on Belfast’s Beersbridge Road in 1999 - there are now 14 stores across the region with locations in Bangor, Carrickfergus, Newry, Drumahoe, Derry, Armagh, Newtownabbey, Coleraine and, most recently, Lisburn which opened its doors in December last year.

Scott Higginson, Managing Director of the Beersbridge Road store, said: “I still can’t believe it’s been 20 years since we opened our first franchise in 1999 and it’s been amazing to watch how the company has grown since then.

“We were confident in those days that there was a gap in the Northern Ireland market for freshly made pizza which is one of the reasons why we were attracted to Four Star Pizza. Across our entire franchise network, our pizza dough is freshly prepared by hand on site daily by passionate and expertly trained pizza chefs, using top quality locally sourced flour.

“I’d like to take the opportunity to commend all of the amazing staff who have worked with us these past 20 years, and who have made the company what it is today. "

“Most importantly, I’d like to say a massive thank you to all of our customers across Northern Ireland for the phenomenal support they’ve given us - I can’t wait to see where we’ll be in the next 20 years!” added Scott.

Since 1999, it is estimated that Four Star Pizza has delivered more than 10 million pizzas to homes across Northern Ireland.

The Irish-owned pizza chain delivered a record year last year, with a 31% rise in online sales driving revenue growth of 8% for 2018. In that time the company also invested over £1 million into the brand, which saw the creation of more than 100 new jobs, and the opening of six new stores across the island of Ireland.
