Funky Monkeys â€“ a brilliantly conceived children’s indoor activity centre and cafÃ© â€“ has opened its sixth centre in Dungannon, County Tyrone. With unemployment figures reaching a record 14-year high in Northern Ireland, Funky Monkeys has proved its business model can excel in the recession by creating eight new jobs at this new centre.
This brings the total employment figures to 65 for the Funky Monkeys brand. With five other play cafÃ©s in Belfast, Lurgan, Downpatrick, Newtownabbey and Larne, Funky Monkeys has become one of Ireland’s leading indoor soft play facilities.
The brand has experienced great success from opening its first centre in 2008. Since then, it has expanded rapidly, opening a further five franchise locations across the province, with an additional two centres due to open in the next few months.
