One of the UKâ€™s leading franchise consultancy and publishing investment companies, Franchise Development Services (FDS), is seeking to award the simultaneous Master Franchise rights for the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
The volume of business emanating from Ireland is considered sufficient to award the Master Franchise rights to a suitable company or a group of individuals who can develop the business to its full potential. With over 500 franchises available for Irish investors from 1,250 UK companies alone, the Irish franchising market is ripe with opportunities.
Since it was established in 1981, FDS has worked with over 50 Irish companies seeking to expand their business by franchising. These companies have included Eddie Rocketâ€™s, Zumo, Ladies Workout Express, The Frying Squad, Cleaning Doctor and Oâ€™Briens to Master franchisors such as Foot Solutions. In addition to publishing the Irish Franchise Magazine and The Franchise Magazine, FDS also produces the United Kingdom Franchise Directory, European Franchising and Franchise International.
FDS is seeking to establish separate head offices in Dublin and Northern Ireland so that it will be able to take advantage of the grants and assistance available from both governments.
