The Irish Franchise Awards celebrates excellence in franchising and rewards outstanding achievements from both the franchise community and suppliers to the sector. 2017 is the 22nd year of this prestigious event and it is one of the most established and reputable business award ceremonies in the country. In 1995, just 2 franchise awards were presented and now in 2017, 15 bespoke awards will be presented at a gala event attended by leaders of the franchise sector, invited guests, media and government representatives. The Irish Franchise Awards are open to both members and non-members of the Irish Franchise Association and this online entry system is designed to be time efficient and easy to navigate.
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.
