Brian Lee

Freshly Chopped

Brian Lee is one of Ireland’s top young entrepreneurs. Brian has built a business empire with his passion for health and fitness and his business ventures include FIT Studios and Chopped, the healthy food company.

Brian has a passion for business that can be traced back to when he was 11 and set up a gardening company. Throughout his teenage years he ran his own stalls at the Christmas markets. By age 22 Brian owned a successful property management company and a convenience store in Dublin city centre. He funded both ventures with money he saved up by working as a carpenter throughout his late teens. In 2012 Brian opened FIT Studios in Fairview, which has become one of Ireland’s leading fitness studios.

Brian’s latest venture is Chopped, the healthy food company. Chopped is Ireland’s leading healthy fast food choice and the company has recently signed deals with Maxol and Aramark that will fast track its growth.

Chopped is on track to have over 20 outlets by the end of 2016.
