A new food production company based in Killygordon has just created 20 new jobs.

Bon Appetit by Dudie’s Street Food is the new business venture of owner Eugene Gallen (aka Dudie Gallen).

It launched in October 2021 producing a selection of delicious and freshly made ready meals including some of its most popular meals Salt and Chilli Chicken with Rice and Curry Sauce and Honey Chilli Chicken with Noodles.

Since then Bon Appetit has gone from strength to strength and now supplies over 60 retailers across the north-west including Letterkenny, Ballybofey, Lifford, Derry, Enniskillen and Omagh.

This in turn has created 20 new full and part-time positions for chefs, food production operatives, delivery drivers, cleaners and administrative staff.

Speaking today owner and director Eugene Gallen said “since we started production in October 2021, we have been amazed at the positive feedback we have been receiving.

"In October last year, we were producing between 1,000-1,500 meals per week. We are now producing up to 5,000 meals per week which is fantastic. We are so pleased to have come so far in such a short time and are very grateful to everyone who has supported us so far.

"Obviously the past two years have been tough on everyone and we are really pleased to be able to offer new and exciting positions to people in the local area,” he said.

For anyone who is interested in supplying Bon Appetit’s Meals, job opportunities or more information on any of their meals you can visit their Facebook or Instagram pages.
