Kilkenny fast foodies urged to back favourite local takeaway for 2020 awards

Does your favourite Kilkenny chipper or fast food restaurant have what it takes to be crowned champion of Ireland’s Takeaway Awards?

Entries have just opened for the  Just Eat National Takeaway Awards and fast foodies are being invited to support their favourite local takeaway by nominiating them in the national showdown.

The winning takeaway will receive a top prize of media support worth €20,000.

Organisers said this year’s competition has been “reimagined as a fully-digital event, supporting independent restaurants that have been disproportionately impacted as a result of Covid-19”.

They added: “Ireland’s restaurant industry has shown great resilience and innovation in response to the challenges of 2020, with three new categories including Community Hero, Best Takeaway Cocktails and Best Takeaway Dessert added to this year’s Just Eat National Takeaway Awards ballot paper in recognition of those efforts.

“Spotlighting local Just Eat restaurant partners across Ireland who have gone the extra mile to serve those most in need during the pandemic, nominees for this year’s special Community Hero award will be considered based on their contribution to the local area. Whether it’s delivering care packages to those most vulnerable in our society, supporting local charity efforts or just lending a helping hand to others, Just Eat wants to celebrate them.”

Speaking at the launch of this year’s National Takeaway Awards, Just Eat Ireland managing director Amanda Roche-Kelly said: “There has never been a more important time to get behind your local takeaway restaurant, so we’re delighted to host this year’s awards as a fully-digital initiative, shining a spotlight on the standard of service, the quality of delivery but also on the resilience through innovation that our new and existing restaurant partners have shown during this unprecedented time.

“While we believe all our restaurant partners are heroes for weathering this storm, it was important for us to include a special Community Hero award this year to give our customer the chance to celebrate those who’ve inspired them during these difficult times.”

Customers have until November 15 to nominate your favourite neighbourhood takeaway at http://nationaltakeawayawards.just-eat.ie. All those who vote in this year’s awards before the deadline will also go into a draw to win FREE takeaway for a year.
