Franchising in Ireland

Franchising in Ireland has shown incredible growth over the last decade. The most recent survey shows the sector now enjoys an estimated turnover in excess of €2.5bn, employing more than 42,000 people in full time equivalent jobs, has more than 315 active franchise systems operating here and has proven itself to be a very robust business model during these difficult and challenging economic times.

We have not seen the same level of attrition in the franchise sector as we have seen in the SME stand alone start-ups sector, testament to how operating within a franchise system can improve the opportunity for success as against starting up your own business.
