The founder of the retail and online firms Boylesports has said that his firm has reached the peak of its expansion in Ireland and will likely push to expand in the United Kingdom.
John Boyle made the claim in the Irish Independent, saying that his group is possibly planning on purchasing a major betting firm in the UK in order to scoop up market share. The group currently holds more than 200 retail shops in Ireland and would like to expand significantly in the lucrative British Market.
“A big push into the UK would be one of the next steps for the business. And if it happens it will be done in scale. Now that we are debt free we would have backing from the banks," Boyle said.
Additionally Boyle claimed that his group is looking to hire a new CEO in order to oversee the company's growth.
