New Derry restaurant will create up to 15 jobs

By Staff Reporter

Around 15 new jobs are being created as a new restaurant opens in Londonderry. Husband and wife restaurateurs Ciaran and Melanie Breslin are opening their second venue in the city.

Their newest restaurant, Primrose on the Quay, will seat up to 45 people.

The pair already run the Primrose Cafe on Carlisle Road in the city, which also employs 15 people, while Mr Breslin runs two family butchers with his father in the Lisnagelvin Shopping Centre and Whitehouse Retail Park.

The new opening - as well as a revamp of Primrose Cafe - were backed by Ulster Bank.

Mr Breslin said: "In addition to the original Primrose Cafe, I also run two Breslin family butchers with my father, which will supply all of the meat for the new bistro.

"We feel that there is a real opportunity on the Quayside, which is becoming more and more popular, with growing passing trade.

"We are very grateful for the support provided by Ulster Bank, which has allowed us to invest in the new bistro, and also to expand our existing premises on Carlisle Road."

Rhonda McClelland, Ulster Bank business development manager, said: "Ciaran and Melanie developed a successful enterprise on Carlisle Road and we are very pleased to support them to grow the business with a second outlet.

"They have invested in completely refurbishing the new premises to create a modern new eaterie and we wish them every success with the opening."
