Irish Franchise Awards 2018

Online Entry System


Established in 1995, The Irish Franchise Awards celebrates excellence in franchising and rewards outstanding achievements from both the franchise community and suppliers to the sector. 2018 will be the 23rd year of this prestigious event. In 1995, just two franchise awards were presented and more recently, in 2017, 15 bespoke awards were presented at a gala event attended by leaders of the franchise sector, invited guests, media and government representatives. The Franchise Awards is the longest established and most reputable business award ceremonies in the Irish franchising industry.


Organised by the Irish Franchise Association, award submissions are open to the Irish franchise industry in its entirety – both members and non-members. To submit a nomination, see the online entry system below.


The Irish Franchise Awards was shortlisted in the category of BEST AWARD CEREMONY at the National Event Industry Awards in 2015 and again in 2016 and proudly takes its place amongst the most prolific business award ceremonies in Ireland.
