Along with his business degree, Denis Kiely has over 30 years’ experience in the food industry. His restaurant in Clonmel, Tom Skinny’s Pizza Parlour, has a reputation for authentic Italian pizzas, which have kept his customers coming back for more since he opened the doors in 1992.
As a family man himself, he realises it can be a hassle some times to get all the gang out to a restaurant. This inspired him to help people enjoys his restaurant-quality pizzas at home.
Thanks to Food Academy, his products are already available in SuperValu, so people can savour a premium Irish product in the comfort of their own house. His plan is to employ two people locally at first, with the potential to grow this to 10 employees over time.
