An upmarket Belgian bakery is coming to Ireland, and its first café will be in Kildare
21 Oct 2015
There will be a slice of aristocracy coming to Kildare in the coming weeks as the popular Belgian bakery chain store Le Pain Quotidien will open its first store in Ireland when they move into Kildare Village as part of the new €50 million expansion. As bakeries go, this could be described as somewhat of a boutique bakery, and will blend in perfectly with the high class feel of the retail village. Founded by Belgian food entrepreneur Alain Coumont, the classy bakery is known for its sourdough bread and its communal tables. The chain has 250 stores across 19 countries and has provben to be a huge hit in London, recently opening a new store in the wealthy Fulham area to bring its total number of stores there up to 25. The Kildare Village store will be based over two floors and 480 sq metres. It is another big boost to the hugely successful retail village after fashion brand Armani and sportswear giant Under Armour announced that they would be opening stores there in the new expansion. Kildare Village attracts over 2.5 million visitors each year and has proved to be a hugely successful addition to the area, and a further 400 jobs will be created in line with the new expansion.
