The Irish coffee chain Coffee Commadity Trader says it will be relocating to Dublin
Coffee Commadship Trader has announced it will relocate to Dublin.
The company, which was founded in Ireland by a group of former US and Canadian investors, announced the move in a blog post on Tuesday.
The Dublin-based company said it would start to sell coffee in January 2019, with the new location set to open in 2020.
Coffee Commadeship Trader, which has been owned by the family of John Cawley, has also been in Ireland since 1995.
“We are very excited about the opportunity to launch our new location in Dublin,” Coffee Commadership Trader CEO Michael Kelly said in a statement.
“Ireland is a growing and highly competitive market, and we’re excited to bring our highly-regarded coffee expertise and technology to Dublin and our customers across the world.”
Ireland is a major coffee market with a population of more than 12 million.
Kelly said the company has seen growth in the coffee market, with an increase in demand for its products.
“Our customers are increasingly looking to move to Dublin as a place to invest and to work, which is exactly what we’ve been able to achieve,” he said.
Kelly is also currently in discussions with the Irish government to set up a new headquarters.
He said he expects the company to hire 500 people at the new facility.
The coffee giant, which started selling in the US in 1999, is owned by family-owned Coffee Commassyshop, which operates in 26 countries.
