Ireland Franchise Case Studies Archive
Malachy Bollard, Dublin North,
Coming from a horticultural background, the natural progression was to work in the family horticultural business. As our business was not strong enough to support us all, I joined a Computer Manufacturing company. 30 years on and I have a franchise business. Through all my years working for others I felt under achieved, now I can control my own destiny.

Nicola Cosgrave, Dublin South, ComputerXplorers franchisee
I left full time employment to spend more time with my son. Taking on a part-time role in a local primary school as the computer room assistant, enlightened me as to how intuitive kids are on computers and most of the time they’re having such fun they don’t realise they are learning!
