The popular fast food outlet Burger King will no longer be coming to Portlaoise.
Burger King was set to open in a unit in the Midway Food Court at the M7 at Togher, but this is no longer happening.
Instead, a Bakewell has opened in the busy Laois premises, alongside Subway, O’Brien’s Sandwiches, Freshii and Chopstix.
Not ruled out for the future
A spokesperson for the Midway Food Court said that while there is no Burger King coming now, the possibility of one in the future isn’t being ruled out.
“Prehaps in the future maybe, but for now, no,” the spokesperson said.
The Midway Food Court is managed by Applegreen who have Burger Kings in a number of their other service stations around the country.
The Midway – and the adjacent Maldron Hotel – is an incredibly busy stop off and meeting point – used by both locals and people travelling on the M7.
