Posted by The Irish Sun on Friday, January 30, 2018 09:59:00There’s been some discussion on social media about whether or not the arbys application for an extension for its application deadline will be granted.
However, arbys CEO Chris Pritchard has confirmed that the application will not be granted, even though it’s still the most recent application for a extension to the application deadline.
We understand the application has been submitted and is awaiting approval from the Fianna Fáil/Sinn Féin/Independent TDs committee.
However the application is subject to further scrutiny and a decision is expected to be made at a later date.
Pritchard says the arbies application for extension is not a matter of politics.
We have always maintained that the deadline to apply for an extended application is the same as the application for the new application.
We are currently assessing the response of the relevant parties and will make a decision at that time.
Pichard says that the arbs application will be considered on a case by case basis, based on the response to the previous application.
He says that there has been no request from anyone from the Government for an application extension.
The arbys latest application was submitted in April 2018, when it had a deadline of 5pm, but Pritchett says it’s been on hold for a while.
He adds that they’re “in discussions” with the Government on a new application, and if it goes ahead it would be the third extension that arbys has been granted for a year or more.
In the meantime, arby has announced that they are adding four more branches to the line-up of restaurants in Ireland.
The company says it plans to open five more branches in the coming months.
