The Enniskillen branch will open in July and will employ up to 20 new members of staff, bringing the total number of people employed across all Little Wing outlets to 115.
Little Wing prides itself in offering authentic, made to order pizzas using only the freshest toppings, a secret recipe sauce and home-made dough, all at an affordable price.
“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, which will see Little Wing spread its wings to the west.
“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.”
