Little Wing pizza chain spreading its wings with further expansion

By Margaret Cnaning

Home-grown pizza chain Little Wing is opening a restaurant in Enniskillen, Co Fermanagh, with the creation of 20 jobs.

The latest opening is its first outside greater Belfast and means there are now six Little Wings in Northern Ireland.

The business is part of the Beannchor Group which also owns a total of 45 bars and restaurants - including Belfast's five-star Merchant Hotel and the Portaferry Hotel.

The first opened in Belfast's Ann Street in 2009, followed by venues on the Lisburn Road, in Ballyhackamore in east Belfast, Holywood and Bangor.

Its latest branch opens on Enniskillen's High Street next month and will increase employment numbers at the business to 115.

Little Wing managing director Luke Wolsey, the son of Beannchor founder Bill, said: "Little Wing Pizzeria already has five highly successful branches in Northern Ireland and the expansion into Co Fermanagh is another major milestone for the company.

"We are always looking for opportunities to grow the business and we are pleased to announce this latest opening.

"Little Wing provides real and meaningful long-term career opportunities for people that are passionate about hospitality and customer service and we're proud to bring a jobs boost to the local area, with the creation of up to 20 new jobs.

"I am confident the new branch will be a welcome addition to Enniskillen and we are really looking forward to spreading our wings and becoming involved with the local area and supporting local causes in the community."
