The Wright Group, since its establishment by Irish entrepreneur Michael J. Wright in 1996, consists of 18 award winning bars and restaurants throughout Dublin. It also includes the multi award-winning super club The Wright Venue.
In 2015 the company expanded into Terminal 1 Dublin Airport with the opening of Marqette, a unique and innovative food market which won ‘Best Food Hall in the World 2017’ at the Fab Awards in Toronto. Following on from Marqette’s phenomenal success in 2017, Marqette has now gone on to win a further award, winning Food Hall of the Year Worldwide 2018 for the second year in a row! These awards now confirm Marqette as the leading force in the airport food and beverage market worldwide today.
Since winning the award in 2017 Marqette continues its ethos of “Exceptional Food and Exceptional Service Every Day”. We are continuing to expand the brand and opened Marqette Café in Arrivals in Terminal 1 Dublin Airport in September 2017 and have just launched the hugely innovative Honest Eats concept here in Marqette Dublin. This concept, whereby customers can avail of a totally self-service option, is unique to anywhere else in the airport food and beverage market. We have also been invited to tender in several airports throughout the world and our aim is to launch the Marqette brand worldwide in 2018.
The multi-million Wright Bar Group has become one of the leading hospitality groups in the industry and has benefited from excellent partnerships within the drinks/entertainment industry as well as handpicked staff that work to the group ethos. Michael has been a key player and influencer in the licensed hospitality industry and has sat on many boards including the Licensed Vintners Association or LVA, the foremost national lobby and industry representative group.
Michael’s focus is now firmly set on expanding Marqette food markets into international airports worldwide.
