O’Briens, the sandwich chain run by Brody Sweeney, is taking legal action against one of its franchisees after its outlet became infested with cockroaches.
O’Briens has obtained a High Court order preventing businessman Mark Smartt from using the O’Briens name and branding at his sandwich outlet on the first floor of the St Stephen’s Green shopping centre in Dublin. Smartt is also the joint operator of the basement cafe at the Brown Thomas store on Grafton Street in Dublin. He previously ran the cafe at Habitat in Dublin.
Smartt has operated the O’Briens outlet on the first floor of the St Stephen’s Green centre for a number of years. However, the sandwich franchise took the legal action after the Health Service Executive (HSE) served Smartt with a closure order two weeks ago.
