Franchise Partner Service

The "Franchise Partner Service" is a customized partner development program designed to help U.S. franchisers identify potential franchisees or master licensees for the Irish market. The service is delivered in a similar manner to our Gold Key Matching Service, by locating and then arranging one-on-one meetings with the prospects. It is a highly customized program due to the unique nature of franchising and the challenges that exist in finding suitable partners. A Commercial Specialist, an expert on franchising in Ireland, thoroughly researches the market and matches specific franchise operations across a wide range of industries to the most appropriate search methods that include advertising, direct mail, and networking. Once prospects are identified and pre-qualified to match the desired partner profile, a schedule of meetings is arranged with a number of prospects, usually over a two-day period.


Ranges from $1,600 and varies due to additional expenses incurred such as advertising fees.


Negotiable and determined on a case-by-case basis. Six to eight weeks lead time is usually required.
